* CharacterOutlivesActor: Leslie Dwyer, who played Punch and Judy man Mr. Partridge, died in 1986 between Series 6 and 7. His character was written out in a bizarre and rather tasteless manner; what appeared to be his dead body was found floating in a swimming pool with a knife sticking out of its back, but when the police fished it out it turned out to be a mannequin, and someone eventually found a letter from Mr Partridge explaining that he'd staged his own death and gone to live with a pub landlady in Cornwall. ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext and it wasn't very funny, either. He was replaced by the similar Sammy Morris, played by Kenneth Connor.

* ChildHater: Mr Partridge. Which is something of a problem given that he's the camp's PunchAndJudy Man.

* TheAlcoholic: Mr Partridge. Usually it's played for laughs, but in one episode it's revealed that he slid into alcoholism after [[spoiler:his career was disrupted by his service in WorldWarI]].

** Gladys can be bossy, controlling and outright spiteful and selfish at times. However it doesn't take breaking more than a layer or two to see her softer side, she likewise has the best intentions at heart, and enough good sense to know when she has gone too far.

* CluelessChickMagnet: Jeffery, he's handsome, sophisticated, friendly, charming and highly intelligent. Virtually all the female staff is after him (especially Gladys) but it often goes over his head and when he does pick up, he's to shy to act on it.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Joe Maplin, the owner of Maplin's holiday camps. Normally he just seems a strict boss, with his regularly complaints at the camp costing to much money and demands that his orders are to be followed dogmatically. However every so often he'll show how nasty he truly can be. When he wants some nearby land for expansion, his method is to bribe the town councillors, and gives strict orders that his staff do everything they can to scare off the surveyors that want to build a hospital on the land (which leads to most of the staff outright rebelling in disgust). When Jeffery refuses, he responds by threating to release false information that he's having an affair with Gladys, ruining both their reputations and wrecking Jeffrey's divorce. Later on when an old woman won't vacate a cottage he owns, he bribes a man to knock it down while she's out at the shops. Jeffery even at one point compares him to a Chicago Gangster.

* StiffUpperLip: Definitely Jeffrey, while he's not above getting flustered and showing misery, in a genuine emergency he's able to keep calm and think logically. Perhaps best displayed in "Carnival Time" where due to an accident a float catches fire [[ItMakesSenseInContext with Gladys tied up upon it]]. [[MomentOfAwesome Jeffery's response is simply jump onto the float and cut her loose. Then later jump back onto the float to release to break, so they can pull it into the pool before the fire spreads]]. Definitely not Clive.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Ted feels he would make a better Entertainment Manager than Jeff or Clive. Whilst Jeff is honest and Ted isn't, it has to be said that Ted is much better at presenting to the campers than Jeffrey is (something he happily). And since Clive unloads all of the responsibility of his position on Ted so that he can spend his time (and other people's money) charming every girl in the camp instead of working, it's fair to say Ted ''is'' better at being Entertainment Manager than Clive.
