In which we are introduced to 1930s sheet music salesman, Arthur his somewhat prudish wife, Joan, The ne'r do well Accordian Man and the girl Arthur is to become fixated on, Eileen.

Decidedly unique and offbeat musical drama where the characters burst into (mimed) song at the least provocation. But coupled to the frothy musical numbers is one of the bleakest tales of woe in television history.
