Storyline

Ted Bullpitt's most precious possession is his Kingswood Holden car. He objects when his son, or his son-in-law, wants to drive the car and keeps the keys hidden. He is also unimpressed with his daughter's choice of a husband. Ted's brother is a sales representative for Datsun cars - something else which incurs Ted's disgust, as he feels that his brother should only deal with Kingswood Holden cars. Written by David McAnally <D.McAnally@uq.net.au>

GOOD FOR ITS TIME - HASN'T AGED WELL
3 January 2018 | by Tak005See all my reviews

A humorous look at the life of an Australian family. Ted Bullpitt, the father and central character, being unintelligent and politically incorrect. Uniquely Australian humour, which overseas viewers may find impossible to enjoy. Brilliant in its day, however, as of 2018 it would probably be considered racist, and its style of humour has not aged well.
