The Landlords: George Roper,
Man About the House is good UK television, and this guide uses UK words. For American English speakers, here are the translations:
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.)
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.
George and Mildred-The Roper's have moved on to live in a small townhouse and the tables have turned, when they have landlords (the Fourmile's) and they must own up to the snoppy lords.
Robin's Nest-Robin has moved on to own his own restaurant and live with his girlfriend Vicky and her father who is snooping around endlessly. He is also Robin's not-so-silent silent partner to Robin's Nest.
Three's Company-American remake with John Ritter, Joyce DeWitt and Priscilla Barnes.moreless
