‘Allo, ‘Allo! was a wildly popular British sitcom making unlikely humor of the German occupation of France, succeeding because of its sheer lunacy, and the amiable performance of veteran character actor Gordon Kaye, as café owner René Artois,
René finds himself surrounded by buffoonish German officers, who are easily duped yet still keep René on his toes, and sometimes in hot water,
He also must juggle the imperious French Resistance leader, Michelle DuBois (played by Kirsten Cook; in a recurring gag, Michelle says, “Listen very carefully,
I shall say this only once”–but never manages to get out the urgent message), his jealous wife (Carmen Silvera), and all his staff waitresses, who find the doughy René sexually irresistible,
It is all très French, n’est-ce pas? TV buffs will see more than a hint of Hogan’s Heroes, M*A*S*H, and even the old spy series Get Smart,
Season 5 features as many crazy sight gags as ever (including a special “spy camera” disguised inside a potato), very silly accents, lots of cross-dressing (did you know female German officers were “allowed” to grow mustaches of “tasteful length”?), and over-the-top plots to foil the Nazis,
One particularly memorable episode in this series involves disguising explosives in 500 Christmas puddings that René is asked to house at his café,
How, he pleads, is he to explain the presence of 500 Christmas puddings at his tiny bistro? Resistance leader Michelle, exasperated : “Just say you have cornered ze market!” —A,
