Filthy, Rich and Catflap: The Entire Series - DVD £3.47 delivered @ Selectcheaper
'We'll do anything for a half of lager'.
Conceived by Rik Mayall and Ben Elton as a natural successor to The Young Ones, Filthy Rich & Catflap is a difficult series to describe. The words sublime and ridiculous do spring to mind, but the word that probably sums it up best is: funny. Filthy, Rich & Catflap is a tale of Richie Rich, talentless and unheard of television personality along with Ralph Filthy, his useless, sponging agent and Eddie Catflap, his alcoholic minder, who are both involved in helping (hindering) Richie's quest for TV fame and glory.
Unfortunately, Filthy never gets him any work, and his minder Eddie is more than willing to help administer extreme physical violence should any be visited upon his boss. So, probably not the most stable basis from which to launch a career in television. Filthy, Rich & Catflap's legacy lasted for years however, in the form of the brilliantly funny, if just a little more violent, Bottom.
