US viewers know this show from its near-universal syndication on public television stations. In ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'': ''OverdrawnAtTheMemoryBank'', while running a fake public TV pledge drive as a moneymaking scam, Pearl Forrester identifies footage of Mike and the Bots as a clip from ''Are You Being Served''.

* AlmightyJanitor: Mr Harman is multitalented and, therefore, frequently helps, [[WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs in various roles]], the Ladies and Gents staff members (getting extra pay for it doesn't hurt, either). His powers are highly evident in "Take-over," when he finds out about the plot point "emptying the waste-paper basket" and comes up with his own plan for saving the firm.

* HistoricalCharacterConfusion: Mr Grainger comments that a plan the staff come up to avoid starting work earlier sounds like something BulldogDrummond would have come up with to defeat Oscar Peterson. It has to be pointed out to him that Oscar Peterson is a pianist, and that Bulldog Drummond's arch-nemesis was Karl Peterson.

** In a behind-the-scenes book about the show, the chapter spotlighting Wendy Richard revealed that her second husband was physically abusive, and that she showed up to the set one day with "two black eyes and clumps of hair pulled out." This troper believes that the HairDecorations were used to help pin up Richard's hair to help hide some of the visible signs of abuse that she suffered.
