One of the infamous admags that were popular on the ITV Network during its earliest days; The shows were strung around a loose scenario and mainly consisted of product placement ads for various, usually, household products.

This one starred husband and wife team Peter Butterworth and Janet Brown as a couple opening their own shop but more often than not parodying other styles such as the wildlife films of Armand and Michaela Denis and gangster movies.

Legendary comedy writer Dick Vosburgh was involved in the scripts so there were some funny moments. Usually shown on a fortnightly basis.
