The Chuckle Brothers deliver invisible glass to the museum when they discover someone impersonating Dan The Van.


Paul and Barry Chuckle go to the museum to see a grand unveiling by Dan the Van, only to find that the suave and plausible stranger on stage is not their old school-mate but an impostor. He explains that he is a professional decoy employed to keep Dan safe from 'two hooligans' who keep plaguing him. Paul and Barry are too stupid to realise that the description is of them, but they do end up on display in the museum.


  • The paintings of the Chuckles at work in the Natural Disasters exhibition are actually pictures from some of the earlier episodes including "Lottery Lunacy", "Up in the Air", "Power Play", "The Hunt for Chalky White", and "Telephone Traumas".
  • While most of the episode was filmed in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, the scene where the Chuckles bump into the fake Dan The Van outside a jewellers was shot in front of DJ Warner Jewellers on Woodside Road.
