The Whole Tooth


Eighteenth-century barbers Barry and Paul accidentally deliver Sir Percy, the heroic Purple Pimple, into Robespierre's clutches on the day he is marrying Countess LeBlanc. To make amends they assist the countess in a dramatic rescue - dressed as a pantomime cow - but they too are caught and sentenced to Devil's Island. Luckily for them the countess is an expert sword fighter - and Barry isn't too bad either.


  • The wedding scene in this episode was filmed at St Mary's Church in Stoke D'Abernon, Surrey. The footbridge and rescue of Sir Percy scenes were filmed at nearby Painshill Park in Cobham. The footbridge used for filming in this episode is the Chinese Bridge and the Gothic Tower served as the tower in which Sir Percy was kidnapped.
