‘Allo ‘Allo! is a British sitcom television series created by David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd, starring Gorden Kaye, and originally broadcast on BBC One.
The Resistance, the cafe staff, and the British Airmen (disguised as a cow) venture out to meet the plane in the middle of the night. However, it does not land – a British intelligence officer parachutes out and gets caught up in a tree. The man, dressed as a Gendarme, introduces himself as Crabtree, and that he’s been sent over because he speaks French – although he’s not as fluent to French ears as he obviously believes himself to be. Back at the cafe, Madame Fanny is determined to enjoy “freebies” now that her daughter owns the cafe, and René must blow up a train under the Colonel’s orders, to make Hitler think that the painting of the Fallen Madonna, expected to be on the train, has been destroyed.
This episode marks the first appearance of Officer Crabtree.
