That sounds like an episode of Black Books, but I could be way off with that one.

Thank you for the reply! I tried to look through all the episodes but had no luck finding this particular scene. Do you know which episode/season it might have been in Black Books? Any other suggestions as to which series it could relate to? Thank you for your help 👍

Can you remember at all what the man and woman looked like?

I don't remember the exact looks but the girl was young ish probably late teens or early to mid 20s. I can't remember if the man had short hair or if he was bald as I'm sure she left something on his head once she'd posted her parcel, something metal like her braces or retainer I think. The man's face had blocked the postbox mouth partly when he was stuck to it and the woman's parcel didn't look like it was going to fit anyway but she forces it through by pushing it against the man's face.

Just to observe, whatever she placed on his head, her doing so must have formed part of a proper joke - that is someone would be able to explain why it was funny. Even in children's comedy people don't just do random goofy things.

Thank you again for taking the time to reply. That could well be the case but I can only remember certain things. I wish I knew how he got stuck to the postbox in the first place. I don't know if he had some sort of magnetic power/spell put on him which would have attracted him to the postbox but again I could be way off.


How well does it match the trope?
