N.B. This is not my rip.
Stan Butler works as a bus driver for the Luxton & District Bus Company. He lives at home with his slightly overbearing mother, his frumpy sister Olive and his lazy brother in law Arthur.
Stan's route is the number 11 to the Cemetery Gates which he works with his conductor Jack. Stan and Jack have an eye for the ladies and are often found chatting up either the 'clippies' (female bus conductors) or the canteen staff.
The bane of Stan's life is Inspector Cyril 'Blakey' Blake who is often checking up of them and threatening them with the sack for lateness and untidyness. His catchphrase is, "I 'ate you Butler!".
"On the Buses" was made by London Weekend Television.
