Filthy Rich & Catflap is the fourth-wall-smashing tale of Richie Rich, talentless and unheard-of television personality; along with Ralph Filthy, his useless, sponging agent; and Eddie Catflap, his alcoholic minder, who are both involved in helping (hindering) Richie's quest for TV fame and glory.

Unfortunately, Filthy rarely gets him any work, and his minder Eddie is more than willing to help administer extreme physical violence should any be visited upon his boss. So, probably not the most stable basis from which to launch a career in television.
