Paul Chuckle (1987)

Paul Chuckle is one of the Chuckle Brothers and a main character in ChuckleVision, he was portrayed by Paul Elliott.

Paul usually bosses around Barry by making him do most of the work while he skives off to put his feet up. He is usually the leader of the two in most of the jobs they take up. In earlier episodes Paul was usually the brains and kept Barry out of trouble recently he became more of a dumb leader whilst Barry was more of the smart sidekick. Paul can get mad easily usually due to Barry messing something up, in the episode King Of The Mill he got extremely angry over flower beatles. In most episodes he mistreats Barry in the episode Stand And Deliver he ate Barry's donuts because he was late and in the episode In The Doghouse he ate food he got for Barry and left him a scone which of course he eats afterwards.

In real life he Barry, Jimmy and Brian are brothers.

In the Series, Paul is represented as the older of the two as he talks of Barry as a baby from his own memory, but in real life Barry was the oldest by 3 years.

Lots of relatives are mentioned throughout the series including Granny Chuckle and her many sayings "You should have been in bed an hour ago" their mother is mentioned once or twice but not much information is released. One particular relative that appear frequently are "The McChuckles" who look just like Paul and Barry, but dress in Scottish clothing and have a beard and an accent. They don't speak proper English usually some sort of gibberish language but occasionally some English pops out when they are explaining something. Their first known appearance was in the episode "Sport" from Series 1 where they play a couple of rounds of Golf. The clip can be seen in the original title sequence for a few seconds.

Many relatives appear in the episode "The Gathering" where they are sent around the world to find their relatives for a christening. Included are: Australian, French, Italian and American relatives.


Paul wears a mullet from Series 1 through to series 5 before changing it to the day's fashion. He wears various coloured jumpers during the early series. He is more of the smarter of the two in the earlier series but he seems to become a bit dumber in the later series. He has lots of inventions but most of them go wrong. He has a bushier moustache than Barry and it has stayed almost the same colour since the beginning of ChuckleVision except for the odd few grey bits. in the later series. Paul's hair has stayed the same almost, but has had a few changes in the later series with bits sticking up at the front, but his sideburns are grey but he has dyed the rest of his hair black.
