Spies and detectives of my politically incorrect childhood.

Ah, the 1970s… those halcyon days. I didn’t realise then that I would be growing up into a world where the Perpetually Outraged demographic would be so all-pervasive.

And now that they and I are both here, what am I going to do about it?

I think you know the answer.

English comedians Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett teamed up for several years as The Two Ronnies. Each season featured a serial. Private Detectives Piggy Malone and Charley Farley appeared in a few, but Death Can Be Fatal was probably the best. The dyspeptic duo were hired by MI6 to locate the source of a drug that was wreaking havoc…

On the far side of the Atlantic, at about the same time, the pot heads at Rip Off Press were churning out stories about The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. Thanks to the host of Street Laughter, here’s the story of Fat Freddy’s Cat, and his battle to save the world from another chemical menace.

What does it do to ladies

From the clutches of the cobwebby corpse of a decade that laughed at anything – I Led Nine Lives!




  1. 1970s childhood for me too, so this brings back memories :). These days, everyone seems so wound up about everything… Hopefully comedy will continue to push the boundaries and keep us somewhat sane! Mir xx

    • Thanks, it’s only gotten worse too since I posted this. Some people seem to put outrage on the same level as oxygen – they just can’t live without it.
