The Jeeves stories were also the basis and inspiration for an AndrewLloydWebber musical, ''Jeeves,'' which was released in 1975 and failed so spectacularly both critically and commercially that it's still thought of as Webber's only real flop. However, in 1996 the musical was reworked, rewritten and re-released as ''By Jeeves,'' which was far more successful and got generally positive reviews.

** The novel ''Ring For Jeeves'' was released in 1953, and clearly set in the '50s -- WorldWarII is mentioned, and the post-war social change which caused the aristocrats to seek employment is a major plot point.

** TakeThatUs: ''Jill The Reckless'' features a writer, well-known for creating successful stage comedies, trying his hand at a drama, with disastrous results...in a book that is more of a drama than standard Wodehouse fare.

Wodehouse's books have been the basis for a number of films and television series. The Blandings series has seen Clive Currie and Horace Hodges as Lord Emsworth in movie versions, and Fritz Schultz (in German), Sir Ralph Richardson, and Peter O'Toole on television, although many regard the BBC radio Lord Emsworth, Richard Vernon (who also lent his voice to [[Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Slartibartfast]]), as definitive. Arthur Treacher was well-known as the embodiment of Jeeves in the 1930s, with David Niven (!) taking the part of Bertie Wooster; in the Sixties, Ian Carmichael ([[HeAlsoDid also known]] for playing LordPeterWimsey and the BBC radio Galahad Threepwood) as Bertie and Dennis Price as Jeeves. (It is on record that Wodehouse did not care much for any of these adaptations.) Wodehouse himself appeared in the last year of his life to introduce episodes of the well-regarded ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsHGOmmO6Nc BBC Wodehouse Playhouse]]'', which brilliantly adapted many of the Mulliner and the Golf stories.

Ineffectual gentry, cunning servants, horrendous aunts -- all these were contributed to the GenteelInterbellumSetting by '''Pelham Grenville Wodehouse''' ("Plum" to friends -- and the last name is prounounced "Woodhouse," not "[[Film/RoadHouse Woad]][[ElmuhFuddSyndwome house]]") (1881-1975), a prolific writer of light comedies, who was also responsible for many early Broadway musicals.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Parodied in the golf story "The Rough Stuff", in which hapless dweeb but talented golfer Ramsden Waters is madly in love with beautiful Eunice Bray. She treats him like a combination doormat/child-minder because he's willing to take her much younger brother Wilberforce out on the links with him, and when he clumsily proposes marriage to her she's almost more baffled than insulted that such a hopeless dork would think he had a chance with her. However, when he and she are paired in the mixed doubles, to her considerable surprise he turns into a curt, focused, steely-eyed {{Determinator}} who plays to win, and she finds it irresistible.
