Truly Awful Sitcom
In Britain, there's has been a long tradition of innuendo-filled jokes about amorous milkmen and bored housewives - however this show had an early evening time slot on LWT and so couldn't be as smutty as Robin Askwith's famous "confessions" seventies movies. It was also broadcast in the mid 80's, when this style of humor had well and truly passed it's sell-by date. It wasn't a huge success, and only lasted a couple of years.
The scary thing is that I still remember the words to the theme song - it pretty much sums up the whole show!
Bottle boys, bottle boys,
Up with the lark,
Who cares if it's raining,
Who cares if it's dark,
There's a whole lot of bottle boys taking a pride,
In making sure each customer is satisfied!
Milk, eggs and butter - got them all on the float,
Anything you're short of darlin' leave us a note,
Oh, you'll be glad you wrote it when you hear the noise,
Of the rattle of the bottles of the bottle boys!!
