Not as good as I remembered.By a customer from London , 01 Jun 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I was very young when I used to watch Peter Cook and Dudley Moore - it was way after my bedtime, and they were considered a little bit naughty. In my mind this was going to be hilarious, but I have to say that it only made me laugh out loud a few times. The leaping nuns are funny (as also seen in the film Bedazzled), as are Pete and Dud as sad old geezers getting upset with beautiful movie stars for allegedly pestering them, but I have to say that most of it left me cold. Really I wish I'd left this as just a good memory.

Classic Comedy!!By a customer from Great Yarmouth , 26 Nov 2008These boys were good!!
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008i think pete and dud would have been disappointed....
having recently read through a number of their scripts i thought i would see them put them into action - only to find that the content was remarkably thin given the amount of material available to the BBC (and yes i know the Beeb managed to lose a lot of the early work) but none the less it felt a little thin.
each to their own of course.
DisappointingBy Dave from Hampshire , 27 Oct 2007While I really enjoy the humour of Messrs Cook and Moore, this DVD is not what I'd hoped. This is not necessarily the fault of the producers, but to the everlasting shame of the BBC that wiped most of the tapes of their shows to save a few bob.
The high light (for me) is the father and son sketch where Peter Cook struggles to find a way to tell Dud (the son) about the facts of life.
Still worth a viewing though.
TimelessBy a customer from Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire , 30 Jul 2006These two were pure genius. very funny
ExcellentBy a customer from Birmingham, UK , 06 Apr 2006As I remember them - it's a pity that the BBC don't seem to have any more material for release. There was a natural chemistry between the two great men which is difficult to find with modern comedians.
