Bootsie and Snudge

Bootsie and Snudge

Bootsie and Snudge is a British television situation comedy series written, in the early days, by Barry Took and Marty Feldman; later writers were John Antrobus, Jack Rosenthal, ventriloquist Ray Alan and Harry Driver. The show featured Clive Dunn, more famous as Corporal Jones in Dad’s Army, as well as Alfie Bass and Bill Fraser. Series 1-3, 5 centred around a gentlemen’s club called the Imperial Club, whilst the fourth series broadcast as “Foreign Affairs” centred around a British Embassy in Bosnik. 112 half-hour episodes were made, being broadcast from 1960 to 1964 and in 1974.

The traditional gentlemen’s club in Britain has long been used for comedic purposes in films, usually because of the eccentric characters with whom it can be populated, and the arcane rules. The rule of absolute silence in the reading room, notwithstanding several old men snoring under copies of The Times, is a common feature of such comedy. Memorable moments include Kenneth Connor, in the film Carry On Regardless, being forced to mime “Your flies are open” to one of the members.

In the Imperial Club Bootsie and Snudge resumed their roles of snivelling skiver and bullying sergeant, with contributions from the ancient and always-bumbling dogsbody, Johnson, all under the tyrannical eye of the “Hon. Sec.”, the club secretary played by Robert Dorning. The Hon. Sec.’s way of dealing with arguments was to drown out the opposition with repetitions of “Tup! Tup!”, rising in volume until the other party stopped trying. Thus Bootsie’s name for the character was “Ol’ Tuptup”.
