It was aired from 21 January through to 21 February on RTL plus for three series, totaling approximately episodes. It was the first erotic TV show on German television and was also available to viewers across Europe as it was broadcast without encryption via the Astra satellite which could be received over a wide area and was popular with 'early adopter' satellite enthusiasts in the UK. The show caused substantial outrage at the time, as partial nudity was a central feature the show featured scantily dressed and stripping women. The show was innovative in broadcasting 3D effect film clips where the background was scrolled across the screen at a slower speed than dancers in the foreground, thereby giving the effect of depth on a 2D screen using the Pulfrich effect. The host of the show was Hugo Egon Balder , who was supported by up to three co-hosts:. The shooting time was around four weeks each. The set design, the format and the cast with each season changing were completely taken over by Colpo Grosso , as well as the song sung in Italian.
It won six Baftas having been nominated for 14 and, like Fawlty Towers and The Office after it, ended long before the audience was sated. Yet, mysteriously, unlike those other classics, Tutti Frutti has barely been seen since — the six-part series was repeated only once on television and never given a DVD release. Writer John Byrne's indecently funny script introduced viewers to the Majestics, a covers band who have just lost their lead singer, Big Jazza McGlone, in a late-night, kebab-related car smash. With a silver-jubilee tour booked and a TV documentary planned, they hire McGlone's younger brother Danny Coltrane to fill his place. The series follows the band as they play one depressing town after another and Danny bumps into old flame Suzi Kettles Thompson.
The Majestics, a legendary Scots rock 'n' roll band, are on the eve of their "Silver Jubilee" tour, and find themselves in trouble when their lead singer, Big Jazza McGlone Coltrane , is killed in a car crash. The group's devious and exploitative manager Eddie Clockerty Wilson talks Big Jazza's younger brother, Danny also Coltrane , home from New York for the funeral, into joining the band as their new lead singer. Suzi Kettles Thompson , a sharp cookie and old classmate of Danny, picks up the guitar and also joins the band. From that moment, the ill-fated tour and the band's fortunes appear to take a turn for the better.
