This British sitcom, starring Ronnie Corbett (pictured) as Timothy Lumsden, had a successful seven-year run from 1981 and introduced a catchphrase - "Language Timothy!" - into popular culture.

The sitcom's plot is fairly simple: Timothy is a young-at-heart 41-year-old single man with a good job, an absorbing interest in amateur dramatics and an eye for a pretty girl. Blessed with these obvious advantages, his life should be fun, but due to his tyrannical mother, it rarely is.

Timothy's problems are exacerbated by the fact that he still lives at home with his parents. His father presents no threat, but his mother is stereotypically domineering and interfering. Timothy's trouble is that his mother refuses to acknowledge her son as an adult and treats him as a little boy. Despite his diminutive stature, he has perfectly normal drives and instincts, which are constantly thwarted. Mother not only rules the house, but Timothy as well, through a campaign of sustained, yet subtle (and often hilarious) terror tactics.
