Foggy's reputation for tall jungle war stories precede him. The library regulars just want to read the papers not be annoyed by the tall lying one. Jim Bowen makes a cameo as a security guard who throws him out of the library.

Ivy and Nora Batty are looking for volunteer for a church concert, they are not keen the usual performers. Writer Roy Clarke has done this kind of episodes before. Howard and Pearl plan to perform as a pantomime horse, it is the only way they can be together.

Compo, Clegg and Foggy decided to perform, at least it gives actor Bill Owen another opportunity to do a turn which he always seemed to enjoy. Foggy however steals the show as due to all his jungle stories, Compo had put a creepy crawly down his trousers.
