Overview

Jeeves and Wooster is a British comedy television series adapted by Clive Exton from P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves stories. It starred Hugh Laurie as Bertie Wooster, a jovial but empty-headed young gentleman, and Stephen Fry as Jeeves, his improbably well-informed and talented valet. The stories are set in England and the United States in the pre-World War II 20th century (there are aspects of the Edwardian era, 1920s, and 1930s). Wooster is a well-to-do bachelor, a minor aristocrat and member of the idle rich. He and his friends, who are mainly members of The Drones Club, are aided in all manner of societal adventures by the indispensable "gentleman's personal gentleman," Jeeves. Wodehouse drew the themes of his plots, which concern the entangled love lifes of the major characters, from classical New Comedy.

Episode List

Jeeves Saves the Cow Creamer
Aunt Dahlia sends Bertie to sneer at an 18th century cow creamer in order to reduce the price for Uncle Tom. But when he makes a mess of the job rival silver collector Sir Watkin Bassett gets ahold of it. So Bertie goes off to Totleigh Towers where everyone either wants Bertie to steal the cow-creamer, or threatens to beat him to a jelly if he does. Stiffy Byng, Stinker Pinker, and Aunt Dahlia being of the former category, and the Amateur Dictator Roderick Spode and Sir Watkin Bassett being of the latter. Aired: April 14th, 1991

Pearls Mean Tears
Bertie is called to Westcombe-on-Sea by Aunt Agatha, delaying a vacation in the south of France. There he meets a girl by the name of Aline Hemmingway whom she wishes him to marry. She and her brother leave pearls as security for a hundred pound loan from Bertie. But when both the Hemmingways' pearls and Aunt Agatha's pearls disappear, trouble arises.

Jeeves in the Country
When Bertie takes up the trombone, he moves to the country due to complaints from other tennants. The combination of these two evens cause Jeeves to give his notice, who is immediately snapped up by Chuffy Chuffnell who owns the villiage to which Bertie has moved.

05.
Kidnapped!
This one is rather complicated. After being turned down for the nomination of chairman of the dining commitee at the Drones, Bertie runs into Pauline Stoker, who is in London to buy her wedding dress and is being followed by a strange fellow with a ginger beard. She asks Bertie to come be a body guard. Meanwhile, her father is unable to turn Chuffnell Hall into a Hotel, so he looks into turning it into a sanitarium run by none other than Sir Roderick Glossop. The combination of Stokers, Glossops, and Chuffnells is bad news for Bertie's image, and his only hope is... the boys from the Drones dressed up as Minstrels? Aired: May 12th, 1991

06.
Jeeves the Matchmaker
Bertie begins to think that having a child might be nice. Of course the first step, Jeeves reminds him, is getting married. Once again thoughts turn towards Bobbie Wickham.
Meanwhile, fellow Drones are in love: Tuppy with a dog-lover in the country (and not with Cousin Angela as he should be), and Bingo (as usual) with a waitress named Mabel. Ensuing events involve a rather nasty rugby match, tossing pots through greenhouses, public speaking in front of young ladies, and plans to soften Bingo's Uncle to the thought of his nephew marrying someone in a lower social strata.
