Originally titled Oooh, Canada, Frankie Howerd starred as a Briton living in Toronto who attempted to find work in Canada. He lived in a decrepit Toronto rooming house operated by landlady Mrs. Otterby (Ruth Springford) and her son (Gary Files). Other regular characters were Wally Wheeler (Jack Duffy), a fugitive from alimony, and Denise (Peggy Mahon), a dancer and model who was often the butt of Howerd's lewd jokes.
