The show's ultimate intent seemed to be to illustrate and parody the banal, cookie-cutter nature of most shows in this style. If one changed the names of the main characters, along with a couple of lines, the show would be indistinguishable from a genuine post-war sitcom, and the humour is largely derived from the jarring fact that the domestic fool main character just happens to be Hitler. That said, it's hard to see how the premise, originally envisioned as a comedy sketch, would've been maintained over a series of shows.

Needless to say, the show proved to be more than controversial. Many found it to be offensive for its trivial attitude towards Nazism, whilst others considered it to be a legitimate comedy along the lines of ''Film/TheProducers'' and other Third Reich parodies, with the undeniable crassness being an intentional part of the wider stealth parody. And others just thought it was a boring sitcom pastiche that wasn't made funny simply by the fact a guy dressed as Hitler was in it. Eight episodes were commissioned and planned by the now defunct Galaxy channel of the now equally defunct British Satellite Broadcasting network, but only the pilot was ever aired. The show's filming was immediately canceled upon Sky's acquisition of BSB.

* {{Expy}}: Hitler is basically [[Series/TheHoneymooners Ralph Kramden]]. Eva is a hybrid of [[Series/ILoveLucy Lucy Ricardo]] & Alice Kramden and the Goldensteins are a hybrid of the Mertzes and the Nortons.

* StylisticSuck: How much of the suck is stylistic is a matter for opinion, but if you're writing a DeconstructiveParody of 1950s SitCom tropes that would make a ''good'' 1950s Sit Com if all the tropes were played straight [[note]](in the troping sense of the word, not the "opposite of PlayedForLaughs" sense)[[/note]], you're doing something wrong.

This has no relation to another short-lived sitcom (on Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}), ''Series/HiHoneyImHome'' (aside from being a more overt spoof of 50s sitcoms).
