* AccidentalMisnaming: 'Sir' seems convinced that Tom's name is 'Tim', and everyone is either too polite of too obsequious to correct. The few attempts made to correct him just result in confusion, as 'Sir' asks who 'Tom' is.

* EccentricExterminator: In "Whose Fleas Are These?", Tom and Barbara have an outbreak of fleas at their house which is treated by professional "disinfestation" expert P.V. Bulstrode, who freely declares that he loves his work, his family having been in the insect business since the bubonic plague was sweeping across Britain.[[note]] Whether this was the outbreak of the 1340s or the 1660s is not specified.[[/note]] He gains entry into the house by pretending to be an encyclopaedia salesman (explaining to a confused Tom that his customers find it less embarrassing for the neighbours to overhear), and sings merrily to himself as he puts a flea Tom has been keeping in a jar under a microscope.

Their actions horrify their conventional, and conventionally materialistic, next-door neighbors, Margo and Jerry Leadbetter. Well, they horrify Margo. Tom's friend and former colleague Jerry is mostly just bemused. HilarityEnsues. Notable for being a sitcom about Sustainability before sustainability was a common topic of discussion.

BritCom about a married couple (Tom and Barbara Good) who decide to give up the rat race and become completely self-sufficient. On his 40th birthday, Tom Good gives up his job as a draughtsman in a company that makes plastic toys for boxes of breakfast cereal. Their house is paid for, so he and his wife decide to live a sustainable, simple and self-sufficient lifestyle while staying in their home in Surbiton. They dig up their gardens and convert them into allotments, growing fruit and vegetables. They buy chickens, pigs, a goat and a rooster. The Goods generate their own electricity, attempt to make their own clothes, and barter for essentials which they cannot make themselves.

* NoSenseOfHumor: Margo has trouble with this, though as noted above she can at least manage some DeadpanSnarker moments. In "The Windbreak War", she drunkenly admits that it's a problem she's had her whole life.
