Based on the paintings of Beryl Cook, our larger-than-life Bosom Pals burst onto the screen in two animated specials. The setting is the Dolphin Pub, Plymouth second home for our seven irrepressible Bosom Pals. Under the watchful eye of Billy their faithful landlord they can laugh, cry, have a temper tantrum, put the world to rights, show their naughty bits…and generally be outrageous.
Four men murdered on Plymouth Hoe and the killer is still on the loose…but hoe dunnit?? The Bosom Pals decide to track down the Plymouth Panther themselves. Murder, mystery and mischief abound.
Our Bosom Pals rally round Joan who’s having a bit of a crisis coming to terms with being 46. But it takes far more imagination than a few rounds to cheer her up!
