Billed as `EastEnders' meets `The Simpsons' in a four-part cartoon series for the ears. This comedy was set in an East End Pub, run by Garry and Barry, with appearances from thie best mate Dodgy Phil. The series starred John Thompson, Peter Serafinowicz, Phil Cornwell, with Kim Wall, Debra Stephenson, and Alistair McGowan, and was written by Tony Roche. To my knwoledge, all have been re-braodcast on BBC7.
