Sidney Abbott, salesman and average family man, just wants a nice, quiet, relaxing life. Unfortunately for Sid, his every endeavour seems plagued by his well-meaning but interfering wife, Jean; his innocent and often clueless daughter, Sally; and his selfish layabout son, Mike.

No matter what he tries to do, at work, home, or with his best-friend and next-door neighbour Trevor, he is ultimately brought down with a bump!
