Great video.  >39<

Did anyone notice the picture on the mantlepiece in the bacon and eggs shot?  It appears to be a photo of a young man in uniform.  Wonder if it's Slugs in his days as the Colonel's bat-man? 

Time for some more photoshop expertise!!
 ;)

I had noticed the picture before, as to who it is, who knows. It would nice to think it's supposed to be Slugger in his Army days. I think most households have an old picture of a serving member of the family, and I suppose the FF family wouldn't be any different. It could also be the Colonel? It isn't clear enough to see the details, it could even be a First World War soldier, which would rule out both the Colonel and Slugger.

It is an interesting and intriguing query, though. I wonder if all the photos and postcards were props, or had some connections with the cast.  ???

A walking/talking FF encyclopaedia, awww thanks for that, Anne.  :)

Really nice and well made video   >41<

I haven't viewed this video before probably because it didn't have Dora in the heading  :D  I'm 4 years belated but really nice  >41<

Slugger really was the glue holding Follyfoot together. I don't think I noticed it so much as a teen but watching again it's quite obvious. Great video, !  >41<
Cheers,

Yes, a pity Slugger never had a romantically involved situation in the series, would have probably made for good comedy from Ron.

He was married in the books to a wrestling woman called Tiny! I'm sure Ron would have something to say about that if it had happened in the TV series  :D

I can imagine Ron setting up Slugger with Martha Carne - two more mismatched people you'd never find, posh Martha and down to earth Slugger. That would have been an hilarious episode!
