Happy Birthday To Only Fools and Horses

The nation pays tribute to the nations favourite sitcom  “Only Fools and Horses”


So Only Fools and Horses turns 36, and it’s still loved by millions to this day. Only Fools is a show that has stood the test of time and is still as relevant as it was all them years ago when Del (Sir David Jason) Rodney (Nicholas Lyndhurst) and Grandad (Lennard Pearce) first hit our screens. John Sullivan (Writer) was a man who really understood people, but more importantly he understood comedy. He had an amazing talent when it came to storytelling, and that combination created a show that everyone took in like a long lost relative.

 “One day they might make a musical about the Trotter family. Then, as a sequel, they could do Schindler’s List on ice.” RODNEY

 The show ran from 1981 to 1991 and continued with a few Christmas specials up until 2003 when the show finally came to an end, after the death of Writer John Sullivan in 2011 it was a no brained that the show would never make a return to British television. Some of the best comedy moments appeared in Only Fools and really changed the way us brits enjoyed comedy shows, but the important question is, what was your favourite Only Fools moment?
