Show generally

Question: When exactly was Harold born? Throughout the whole show, both Harold and Albert give conflicting answers about Harold's age. For example, Albert states that Harold was born in 1932, yet in earlier seasons, it's said that Harold fought in World War 2. Could someone please explain?

Chosen answer: There is no definitive answer. In the original run of the series in the early sixties, Harold was given a birth year of 1925, matching that of Harry H Corbett, who played him, making him old enough to have fought in the war. When the show was brought back in the early seventies, his birth year was, for no immediately obvious reason, revised to 1932.

Mistakes

When Albert and Harold are fighting over the cracker Albert's face goes into the trifle, and if you look carefully we can see that he just lets go of the cracker and puts his head in the trifle deliberately.

Trivia

In "Carry On Screaming", Harry H. Corbett is seen in his role as Inspector Bung driving a horse and cart to the tv theme of "Steptoe". A nice touch. Wilfred Brambell also had a small role in another "Carry On",where he couldn't keep his hands off a pretty young nurse.
