Hello CVF, I am grabbing this one, thank you.

We are Big Fans of this show, my wife has named her MINI Cooper "Mrs. Peel".

Alas, I have no bowler hat.


See you at the Other Place.

Thank you for this one.
I had it years ago and lost it in a wildfire.

Haha, I know this show! It was named "Mit Schirm, Charme und Melone" and was shown on west german TV in the early 70s. My Granny loved it.

Back in the day imported movies and TV shows still got their german titles, so all people could understand what the show's or movie's title meant. Those day are over. If you don't understand english, you will be lost nowadays.

Oh, for Non-Germans: the german title means "charming with umbrella and bowl hat".

The sound of the grman title was made harmonic as the words "Schirm" and "Charme" sound exactly the same except for the vowel.

And yes, we call this english special hat a melon, you know, like that ball-shaped fruit you eat in the hot days of summer.
