Hi John,

It's on Fox Classics. It's also out on DVD.

Hi Guys.

The Ted Bullpit character & the Kingswood gag pre-dated the Kingswood Country TV show by quite a few years. It was a spin-off of another TV show called the Naked Vicar Show, which before that was a live stage show. I think the Kingswood itself was mythical, I'm not sure it ever appeared in any of these shows, although when I saw the stage show version in the early 70s there was a photo of a white HK Kingswood on the wall, as a stage prop.

By the way, all of these shows starred basically the same acting line-up.

Ah Dr Terry, you've covered it well.

I remember The Naked Vicar Show. I like anything Noeline Brown did
and what a great cameo in Walkabout. I've never seen a single episode
of Kingswood country but I have meet Lex Marinos.

It was a HJ as I had one at the time myself!! I had a green one and his was blue, but as another poster said it wasn't shown off at all in the show, just the odd glimpse here and there!! Mine was a little different as I didn't carpet the mudflaps, or polish the dipstick etc etc!!!!

Cheers

Peter

It was also a V8 As i have been watching the repeats on Fox Classics recently & in the episode he trades it in for a 4cyl commodore because of the monthly Bullpit fuel bill the Kingswood goes to a Holden musuem & the curator of the museum makes a comment about how he's not surprised at the amount of the fuel bill with the weight of all the accessories & a V8

That show was soooo politicaly incorrect, "money on the fridge Wog" all the "Nevilles" around and blowing up nuns. The classic was taking his 2 greyhounds, Gay Akubra and Repco Lad for their daily walk, down to the letterbox in a wheelbarrow!!

Peter and HZEFI are both on the money. I too recall it was a pale blue/powder blue V8 HJ.

Regarding farewelling the Kingswood for a Commodore 4: such a stupid plot device is called a 'Jump The Shark' moment. When a series has been going too long and ratings are sliding, the writers/producers often try to grab attention by creating a new dynamic or event. It usually precedes the show's cancelation within just a few months. (Fonzie jumps his bike over a shark pool!)

jumptheshark.com

Scrappy Doo is added to the mystery machine gang on Scooby Doo.
Some little alien is added to The Flintstones.
Aliens and ghosts turn up on Chances. (well, they were written in after the series was given its marching orders actually...)
Rebecca Wilson joins the Footy Show (Sydney).

and... a Commodore 4 becomes Ted's new car!

Hi :-)

I'm wanting to make a Model of Ted's Kingswood, and this information you've provided will be very useful in that regard

Just a couple more questions though....was it a Sedan, Wagon, or Ute, and what Year it might have been?

Also....I know from IMDb Trivia that the Licence Plate is TBP-007, but, although the show was made in Sydney, does anyone know where it was set, just so I can try to get the Plate right?

i wonder if in another 25 years we will be talking about tv shows of today ? it may sound like this..... " do you remember all those great shows about fixing up peoples back yards ? ah yeah, one on channel 7, channel 9 and 10, all at the same time. and that was straight after watching what the neighbours had been doing, or what teenagers had been doing at the beach all day, cause they dont work, or on the other channel, out of work celebrities learning how to dance. ah yeah, it dont get better than that..... but wait, theres more.... ( sorry Tim the demtel man, no pun intended ) just after that great entertainment ( if you could possibly handle more ) theres about an hour of children who cant sing, but are on prime time television.... ( i use the term children, why ? did Bon Scott, Brian Johnson or Doc Neeson ever look like this.... even at 12 years old ? i dont think so ) there is also half an hour of surveys, apparantly they are current affairs, on every channel, about how there is no calcium in orange juice...., about someone who didn't pay their mortgage and the bank foreclosed...., how a woman who ate nothing but fast food turned into a fatarse ( who would of thought )...., or why does the average worker think i'm skank because i have six kids to eight fathers and cant send them to school because i dont have enough money, even though it is free but i wouldnt be home in time to watch jerry springer........... ah yeh, i remember them well........... it was the time, the time i stopped watching tv !

G'day

"And it was all done in the best possible taste!"....

Poor ol' Ted Bullpit. He used to change the air in the tyres as the old stuff got stale. And always cleaning that dipstick. EVERY time he pulled it out, it had oil on it! Not to mention shampoo the fuzzy dice...

You know, my Dad was soooooooooooo like this too....(R.I.P)

No I have to disagree ever so slightly Nobody123- How about shows like Mythbusters- or Top gear? or if you have a TV aerial the size of a hills hoist ( now there's an idea!) you can watch Rodders life on 31

Some of the sitcoms rate OK as well- like My name is Earl ( now that has a '73 454 El Camino with an '80 front door and guard!) or how about That 70's Show or Futarama ( a show that has a lot of subtle Stephen king and others reference's)

Basically redneck humour is still out there- being swamped by 'lifestyle' programs

Othe rthan that - your right - TV and modern society is crap.

Man the guy is god!! When it comes to bass playing! Stu Hamm is up there but the way Les slaapps is soo cool I drool ever time i see him play!!
I seen some footage once where he puts his fingers over each other on both hands formng them into claw like pincers, and says smugly- this is how i do it all! Then goes into this wild poping and slapping routine, it's insane! I have a stuart spector 5 sting Bass , Neck thru body, very expensive and seriouse instrument, but my playing sounds like mud even if I do work out 2 barrs of his tablature!! I'm a guitaristfirst Bass is my second instrument!
I seen Satriani years ago at the palace and Stu Hamm Was more entertaining on his 7 string Bass!!

It's funny...back in the day, when I was still a kid, punk rock made me want to get a band together and make a racket, but it was years later when I first heard Les Claypool that I was inspired to be a MUSICIAN. He just made it look so damn EASY!
Playing in bands was simple, did it for years, but I was just never able to master an instrument. Had a hell of a time trying anyway...lol!
Another guy who is just brilliant is a jazz guitarist/bassist called Charlie Hunter...he's got a 10 string that is both guitar (plays lead) and bass (picking rhythym) at the same time. Saw him play and I couldn't believe it was one guy doing both.

A coupla years ago there was this thing on tv about Chet Atkins. Now he was one majorly good guitar player. Showed him doing a show and he did this bit where he played "Yankee Doodle" and "I Wish I Was In Dixie" AT THE SAME TIME! Unbelievable.

Never knew till after he died that he put Freddie Murcury and Queen on the map by playing Bohemian Rhapsody back to back for 24 hours solid on his crazy radio show! Weird that they both- him and Freddy died of the big disease with the little name??

Played in all manner of bands and noisy thingies. More arguing than productivity! You know the story?? As for mastering an instrument I believe the guitar Be it a six string accoustic or a bass or anything with machine heads, is imposible to completely master!! So many different tunnings and variables, youd need ten thousand lifetimes to MASTER IT!!
Cheers BOBBY===========
Ive seen clips of charlie Hunter, whata freak!!
I want to get back into the blues, my son is gigging with my bass these days and doing well. Playing theHi Fi bar this week 500 plus punters in the audience (very proud of him) also he's doing a reality TV thing with chanel 31 here in melb! Airs this Saturday night I believe!!
Ive got my eye on a National Dobro Resinator to start the slide playing on!!
