First broadcast: Monday 24th July 1972

Bruce buys a car for £10 from a man he has never seen before, and takes Reg and Lollipop on an outing to a safari park. But when Violet has too many cups of tea, and Lollipop is picked up, getting back home is a slow business.


3. It's Only Natural

First broadcast: Monday 31st July 1972

4. My Fur Lady

First broadcast: Monday 7th August 1972

5. Cock-A-Doodle-Don't

First broadcast: Monday 14th August 1972

Reg is beginning to find Maggie too dominant - a feeling which intensifies with the help of his auntie's chandelier and a rip in the new wallpaper. Yes, Reg is definitely henpecked; ripe, in fact, for membership of The Crows, a secret society where men rule the roost.


6. Lollipop And The Two Bares

First broadcast: Monday 21st August 1972

Jubilation! At last, Bruce and Violet are moving out, if only to make way for rich cousins Arthur and his wife to stay for a fortnight. But Maggie's glee turns to consternation when she discovers that her visitors have some unusual habits: they are health fanatics, and the bare fact is that it is not only their vegetables that they like raw!


7. Inspector Hardcastle Investigates

First broadcast: Monday 4th September 1972

There's the dickens to pay in the Lollipop household when Reg arrives home late to miss his birthday treat clutching a mysterious green suitcase. It may only be full of books, of course, but it holds something much more important - a chance to finally get rid of Bruce and Vi!
