Hotel owner Basil Fawlty's incompetence, short fuse, and arrogance form a combination that ensures accidents and trouble are never far away.
The recording of the final episode Fawlty Towers: Basil the Rat (1979) was postponed due to a BBC strike, and so was not broadcast until October 1979, six months after the rest of the series.
There's been a lot of bloodshed at the Nell Wynn's Tea Rooms, you know?
John Cleese says "hand waited on hand and foot" at one point in the episode "Waldorf Salad".
The Fawlty Towers hotel sign has its letters missing, or scrambled up to make new words. The sign presents a different error with each episode.
For German TV-runs the main-theme was changed to "funnier" music.
