Whatever Happened to Carlow Crab? was a hit British sitcom broadcast between March 1976 and June 1979, as the colour sequel to the late-1960s hit The Carlow Crab. It was created and written, as was its predecessor, by Benny Hill with additional material from members of Monty Python. There were 26 television episodes over three series, and a subsequent 45-minute Christmas special was aired in December 1980.

Show Format[edit]

The show revolves around the character of Carlow Crab, portrayed by Rodney "Crusty" Crustacean, a teenage arthropod with super powers, who for some strange reason is native to a small city in the Republic of Ireland. The shows producers have failed to explain why most of the cast of the show are ocean dwelling sea creatures, although shortly before his death in 1992 scriptwriter Benny Hill stated that he'd "been off his cake on drugs" when creating the series.

Theme Song[edit]

Although the Danny Phantom show is an obvious rip-off, the theme sing sounds totally different.

Goin' back to Carlow, Carlow, Carlow,
