Totally had the same thought as Basil about Mr. Carnegie "the Scavenger Gourmet" when the scene began, and felt SO BAD for him when we then found out Mr. Carnegie's identity. "Thank God we English can laugh at each other, eh? A ha ha!" LOL @ poor Manuel and his "Siberian hamster." LOL @ the veal. LOL @ the Major. LOL @ the rat's name. And lol @ the final scene ... with the health inspector speechless and Basil having passed out and being dragged out of the dining hall by Manuel.
This sounds like the episode my mum and I saw. I remember it definitely involved a rat.

There are really only 12 episodes? Wow. Didn't realize it was that short. You can find them all on YT?
