After the success of ON THE BUSES all the cast were much in demand for the Pantomime season.
Here we see Bob Grant from the Panto'Jack and The Beanstalk' in 1973. He appeared along side Stephen Lewis which meant young and old came along for an evening of laughter and festive fun

Above a 'TV Times' page advertising the 1972 'All Star Comedy Carnival' These shows were Christmas specials made by LWT and were shown over the festive period. They contained specially made sketches of the hit tv sitcoms and shows of the time. Two of these were to include ON THE BUSES, one in 1969 and another in 1972. The 1972 one is in exsistance but sadly the 1969 show was wiped after transmission.
