Considering Albert was a rag and bone man, and used to handling fine china, be was quite clumsy. He'd previously smashed up a Meissen figurine, and now manages to destroy Harold's collection of fine valuables. As always the old man has a plan to save himself from his son's wrath.

This is without doubt, one of the funniest episodes of the lot. There are some laugh out loud moment, the scene where the Detective interviews Albert is hilarious, as is the moment of discovery. Dudley Foster is priceless as the straight laced Detective, his reaction to the description of the assailants is wonderful.

Definitely a classic. 9/10
