Editorial Reviews

The holiday season bring s out the best in Grace Brothers' department store: Bickering, bribery, lechery, snits, and of course silly musical numbers while dressed in ridiculous costumes. Classic Britcom Are You Being Served? thrives on the comedy of petty squabbles and this collection of Christmas-themed episodes is prime stuff. The four episodes have been plucked from seasons 1-7; in one episode, the staff is forced to dress as fairy-tale characters for a holiday promotion; in another, they try to entertain young Mr. Grace by doing a children's ballet; in another, they apologize for not joining a strike by putting on a full-sized Punch-and-Judy show---and in the remaining episode, the temptation of a large bonus leads the entire staff to dress up as Father Christmas. The pleasure in such hijinks, as with most sitcoms, depends heavily on the audience's indulgence of the characters, but the cast of Are You Being Served? was rich with goofy charm (the effervescent John Inman is in particularly top form). A perverse Christmas display unit, from "The Father Christmas Affair," remains one of the show's all-time comic highlights. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Come visit Grace Brothers during the holidays, where there's plenty of laughter in store with this unbelievably quirky contingent of sales clerks. Nothing makes Christmas as special as stuffing four hilarious episodes of this classic comedy in your stocking. Each episode is presented uncut and has been lovingly restored. Also included is a never before seen "On Set Interview"!

DVD Features:
Biographies:Who's Who (Cast bios)
Interviews:Never before seen "On Set Interview" with the cast

A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
-Mrs. Slocombe looking at the turkey for the staff Christmas lunch.

This DVD contains the episodes, "Christmas Crackers", "The Father Christmas Affair", "Happy Returns" and "The Punch and Judy Affair". All of these episodes are hilarious and well-written. This is a great collection if you have never seen "AYBS?". However, if you already own the complete collection, the only thing different about this DVD, is that it contains an "On-Set Interview".

5.0 out of 5 stars TOO HILARIOUS!!!! Great way to get on the Christmas mood! September 4, 2006
By Laurie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This set is great to give to someone for Christmas that doesn't own the entire set on DVD. The scene where the mannequin's robe comes open and flashes Mr. Humphries is a classic. It always has me rolling on the floor. This DVD is great to help you get in the Christmas mood. I love watching the BBC Christmas comedies. I pull them out at Thanksgiving every year. GREAT to decorate the tree by. Another great Christmas DVD is the "Keeping Up Appearances Deck the Halls with Hyacinth." It also makes a great gift!

5.0 out of 5 stars Are You Being Served? January 23, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This hillarious blend of Father Christmas Affair, Cristmas Crackers, and Top Hat and Tails will surely tickle your funny bone.
In Father Christmas Affair, the staff are troubled with the problem of finding a Father Christmas for the store untill there is a fifty pound bonus.
In Cristmas Crackers, the staff get into the Cristmas season by having their usual(ly bad) Christmas dinner(except Mr.Lucas) and get into their holliday costumes to fit their winter wonderland department.
In Top Hat and Tails, The staff prepare to enter "The Golden Shoes Competition" how ever akwardly it seems. They also welcome their new akward robots who in time dance better than the staff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celebrate Christmas with a Chuckle! September 14, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
The gang from Grace Brothers is back! Let's get into Christmas costumes and watch Mr. Humphries and Mrs. Slocumb and that hottie Ms. Brahms spread Christmas Cheer. Let's set the department store aglow in holiday designs. Let's watch Mr. Grace treat the staff to a Christmas lunch filled with fun and havoc....boy was that a luncheon we won't forget. Just like the set of 7 volumes, this Christmas edition will not disappoint. I love English comedies! And so will you as it will hook you into watching and loving the holidays even more. Well worth it....highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A notice to readers on this page November 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Some of these reviews on this page are for the film version of Served and not for the Christmas special offering. This can cause a deal of confusion, so be careful!
The 3 episodes on this tape were seldom seen in some areas that carried Served almost nightly; so it is good to be able to see them as a group. There is some degree on Political Incorrectness concerning blackface in one of the episodes, but it is handled well and will offend only those who wish to be offended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I waited 6 years to see these Christmas videos! January 3, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Ever since I first discovered this great series, I have wanted to see the Christmas shows. My local PBS never aired them and until I found this collection I was out of luck. I'm glad I found them! The shows are great, they are all must sees. I really wish that instead of 'Top Hat and Tails' they would have put on another Christmas special, 'the Punch and Judy Affair.' 'Top Hat and Tails' is technically not a Christmas special. 'Christmas Crackers' is my favorite on the tape, but 'Father Christmas Affair' is still excellent. The musical at the end of 'Christmas Crackers' is funny in standard AYBS style, but also quaint and nostalgic. Overall, this is a fine holiday collection from Britain's funniest!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great video for true fans March 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This tape includes the episode Top Hat and Tails, which is not seen very often here in the states. Also, the Christmas episodes are very memorable. The tape is great and of the usual high standards of the staff of Grace Brothers!!
