On The Buses: Stan's job is secure, as bus drivers are hard to come by, and his overtime prospects are good, until the bus company decide to revoke a long standing rule and employ women bus drivers. Aghast at the thought of no overtime and, therefore, less wages, he joins forces with his long time work colleague Jack to sabotage the new female employees.

(Dir. Harry Booth, 1971)

Mutiny On The Buses: Bus driver Stan Butler agrees to marry Suzy, much to the anguish of Mum, her son-in-law Arthur and her daughter Olive. How, they wonder will they ever manage without Stan's money coming in? Arthur learns to drive a bus and Stan blackmails the Depot Manager into giving him the job of driver on the new money-making Special Tours Bus. A great idea, if only the inspector hadn't taken Stan on his trial run to Windsor Safari Park!

(Dir. Harry Booth, 1972)

Holiday On The Buses: A small matter of three crashed buses, one piece of mutilated council property and a written off car belonging to the Bus Depot Manager adds up to instant dismissal for Stan, Jack and Inspector Blakey. Jack and Stan think that all is saved when they find work in a Welsh holiday camp running the camps transport. Then they discover that Blakey has been installed as Camp Security Inspector!

(Dir. Bryan Izzard, 1973)

great offer,my husband will love it xx

Cracking find - brother in law sorted!

I get the sense on the buses is a much loved show but I don't think the humor is up to much. I guess I don't get it.

Ghastly - cringeworthy trash at any price. Just seeing the trailers for the TV series and these as a kid put me off public transport for life...

Before humour was invented.

I used to think Holiday on the Buses was the worst film ever made. Then Sex Lives of the Potato Men came out.
Anyway, I grew up a bit and decided it was all done for fun so why worry. It's a good deal and you'll either laugh where you're supposed to or somewhere else!

Great comment

Don't like it myself, but a great Christmas present for some.

Did you know that 'On the Buses' was the most watched film in 1971 (In the UK) - it Beat the James Bond Film 'Diamonds are Forever' at the Cinema, can you believe that!

Only because Diamonds Are Forever was released in the last week of the year and On The Buses was released in the summer! Try adding in the figures from 1972 to get the true picture.

It's not as if things which were about in the 70s aren't funny now. Porridge, Fawlty Towers, Dad's Army. I really don't get on the buses, maybe someone can explain it to me. The lameness of some of the jokes remind me of Last of the Summer Wine actually another treasured show.

The hapless Inspector Blakely is great - the episode where he tries to coach their football team is genius.

But basically, it revolves around the main character trying to do as little work as possible, whilst getting as much "crumpet" as possible.

good laugh nonetheless.

I have the TV boxset and have watched it at least 10 times - must be me but I think it's great comedy - watch the episode where Blakey and Jack turn off the stop **** in the street and tell me that's not funny. Blakey is one of the great British comic characters.
