Whoops Baghdad - Netflix

Welcome to ancient Baghdad, and the home of the Wazir, his two daughters, and servant, Ali Oopla. At his master's every beck and call, Ali regularly finds himself running around in hairy entanglements with those far richer than his master, from merchant traders to the Caliph, and even some of the richest men in the world. More often than not, those entanglements involve the Wazir's daughters: the naïve but sweet Saccharine; and Boobiana and her two beauties. If Ali's not careful, he could find himself on a slow roast!

Whoops Baghdad is a BBC television comedy programme first broadcast from 25 January to 1 March 1973. It stars Frankie Howerd, and was similar to his earlier programme Up Pompeii!, with the setting moved from Ancient Rome to mediaeval Baghdad. However, it was less successful than its predecessor, only running for six episodes and is little remembered, although all episodes apparently survive. The original proposed title, Up Baghdad, was rejected because it was felt that it might have been seen as supportive of the then-current Iraqi regime.
