Show Summary

Welcome to the "Man About The House" Information page at tvtome.

British hit series Man About the House is a story about young Robin Tripp who winds up wanting to move in with the lovely Chrissy Plummer and Jo. However, to live in the flat with two girls, he must convince the landlords, George and Mildred Roper, that he is gay With this, a perfect comical setup that lasts us 39 episodes.

The Roommates:
Robin Tripp, Chrissy Plummer, & Jo

The Landlords: George Roper,
Mildred Roper

Other People:
Larry Simmonds

Man About the House is good UK television, and this guide uses UK words. For American English speakers, here are the translations:
flat--apartment
flatmate--roommate
football--soccer
pub--bar

Man About the House to Three's Company: Robin Tripp-Jack Tripper
Chrissy Plummer- Janet Wood
Jo- Chrissy Snow
George Roper- Stanley Roper
Mildred Roper- Helen Roper
Larry Simmonds- Larry Dallas

(Cindy, Terri, Furley, and Lana did not have original UK versions, as they were added in America only.)
Useless Information:

Larry (Doug Fisher) appears in 19 episodes, 20 if you count the movie.
Norman Eshley played Robin's brother Norman, but then moved on tho George and Mildred playing a completely different part.
Chrissy and Jo never appear on any spin-offs of Man About the House. They are never seen again.
Norman Eshley appears four times during the series run, once as Ian Cross and then three times as Norman Tripp.
Alison Hughes plays a girl named Linda twice in the series run. In Three's Company, Jack's girlfriend Linda appears three different times. Man About the House was 39 episodes long, a HUGE difference between Three's Company. This could be because British television fundings are smaller.
Man About the House had an okay film, but Three's Company nor its spin-offs made a film.

SPINOFFS
