Man about the house

Man About The House was a very popular British sitcom during the 70s. Its basic premise concerned a young male student sharing a flat with two girls - hardly a radical concept now, but something that was considered revolutionary and improper. The young man in question was Robin Tripp, a catering student from Southampton. His room-mates were Chrissy Plummer, with whom Robin wanted to be more than friends, and dizzy blonde Jo. The other main characters were their landlords, George and Mildred Roper. Whilst George was very uptight and disproving of the situation, Mildred was more relaxed.

Man About The House spawned two separate spin-offs - Robin's Nest, in which Robin started his own restaurant, and George and Mildred about the Ropers.
