Man About the House was a comedy about two female housemates, Chrissy and Jo who wake up one morning to find a strange man in their bathtub. Robin had fallen asleep in the tub the previous night after a party. He ends up cooking them breakfast and then ends up taking the position of third housemate. There was a sense of sexual chemistry particualry between Chrissy and Robin, the show leaving viewers in suspense to see if they do get together or not,

The other key charactors in the show were the Ropers. George and Mildred Roper were the landlords, George was lazy much to the fustration of Mildred who very much wore the trousers in their relationship. George was scared of Mildred but did enjoy getting one over on her.

There were two spin off series, Robin's Nest followed Robin as he set up his own resturant with his wife while George and Mildred followed the Ropers as they moved to a new home only for George to get on the wrong side of the neighbours
