CRAP, CRAP, CRAP.

I stumbled on this because a friend on Facebook was annoyed with all the status messages looking like Obits with all the recent deaths and I wanted to annoy him with someone else who died and I found that Mrs. Slocombe from "Are You Being Served?" died today as well.

I LOVED that show and it's looking like almost everyone from the pilot (and the whole cast, apparently) is dead.

Man, you are bringing the bummer today.

Again, another one I would not have expected to be alive in 2009. She'd have DEFINITELY not been my first pick for "last castmember standing" out of the "Served?" crew.

I first happened upon Are You Being Served? back in the early 1990s when the local PBS station starting airing it. It's always been one of those shows I'll stop to watch if I'm going through the channels.

Not counting the various secretaries and store customers, I think the surviving cast members are down to Frank Thornton (Capt. Peacock), Trevor Bannister (Mr. Lucas), Nicholas Smith (Mr. Rumbold), and Mike Berry (Lucas' replacement, Mr. Spooner).

RIP to Mollie Sugden, and I'm sure Mrs. Slocombe's pussy will be in good hands.

I used to watch a bit of Are You Being Served when I was a kid. I always found the Mrs Slocombe character quite funny.

I loved that show when I was a teenager. God, I miss good British comedies. I thought she passed awhile ago too, good for her to make it this long.

I find it remarkable that all the shows I thought only my family watched were much more universaly watched by people my own age. I mean I can't imagine admitting at school that I ever watched Are You Being Served? during the years that I watched it.

I believe I actually used Mrs. Slocombe as one of the reasons I dyed my hair blue when pressed by my mother. "It's because you made us watch PBS!"

"And I am unanimous in that!"

Didn't everyone of a certain age group get hooked on Python and Doctor Who, and then other great British shows? Rumpole and Dave Allen, to name two others.

Mr. Humphries is also free in case Mollie needs someone to take her inside leg for the heavenly gown fitting.

I had to share this, from youtube, a tribute to Mrs. Slocombe's pussy.
