Me And My Girl – 1984

There is so much comedy doing the rounds on various channels these days, but it never ceases to amaze me just how many have fallen into obscurity.

Me and My Girl is one such example.  Once compulsive Friday night viewing, now forgotten about this popular sitcom benefitted from an all star cast of well known names from the world of TV sitcom.

Running for fifty two episodes ovre six series between 1984 and 1988, Me and My Girl was one of the last pieces of TV work to feature Richard O’ Sullivan alongside Goodies legend Tim Brooke-Taylor


Simon Harrap is a widower and Father to a teenage daughter.  He runs an advertising agency called Eyecatchers.

The series centres around his relationship with his daughter, Sam, his business partner Derek Yates and a string of romantic liaisons.
