Mr Pastry’s Pet Shop (BBC Sitcom, Richard Hearne)



In slapstick sitcom Mr Pastry’s Pet Shop, after visiting Jersey Zoo, Mr Pastry (Richard Hearne) decides to set up his own lavish zoo but then decides on a pet shop.

This was another in the long line of Mr Pastry sitcoms. They were all very similar, each one only usually ran for a few episodes. Long enough to explore the situation and then move on. The six part series received a repeat showing in October 1963.

Guest stars included Christopher Trace (the Blue Peter presenter), Joe Greig, Peter Diamond, Roger Kemp, John Dawson and Ivan Owen.
