THE HUGGETTS GET A PHONE

The Huggetts were a fictional family living in London in the late 1940's and early 1950's. They featured in 4 films including "Here Come The Huggetts". The film starts with the announcement of a new phone for the household. This would have been a real event in 1948. The way the phone was installed and the reactions to it were comically over done but reflected the reality of the times. You didn't just get a phone - you had to apply and be judged worthy!.

You can find the entire series of the Huggetts, including the hilarious "Holiday Camp " on Youtube if Google hasn't deleted them again.

Brilliant and So True

The Huggetts are a gem - a masterpiece of comic genius complete with a patina of anachronism. I encourage any one to watch the series - you won't be sorry. Please enjoy and share!
