The Cowboys 1980 – 1981

All this week we want to look at some of the great ITV sitcoms that largely get overlooked when talking about Classic Comedy and scheduling repeats.

Starring the late great Roy Kinnear Cowboys was the ITV sitcom that ran for two series totalling 13 episodes between 1980 and 1981.  ”Joe Jones” (Roy Kinnear) owns a small building firm (Joe Jones Ltd.)” that hardly seems to do anything right at all”

Joe Jones Ltd is a dubious building firm with a less than perfect reputation, run by Joe Jones.
Geyser, Wobbly Ron and Eric work for Joe because no-one else will employ them. And Joe has to employ Geyser, Wobbly Ron and Eric because no-one else will work for him…
The series follows the misadventures of  Joe Jones and his team of “Cowboys”
