Ännu ett TV-mysterium löst!

Häromdagen skrev jag om den engelska TV-serien NOBODY'S HOUSE och passade samtidigt på att fundera om en annan serie jag såg som barn och som jag omöjligt kunde komma på någon titel på eller vad den egentligen handlade om.
Nå - nu har jag lyckats lösa även denna gåta, tack vare min gode vän MJ Simpson; en trevlig herre som driver en minst sagt ambitiös kultfilmssajt döpt efter honom själv och som hittas HÄR.
Serien om de två jobbsökande killarna heter i original 4 IDLE HANDS och producerades i sex episoder 1976. Huvudrollerna innehades av Phil Daniels, Ray Burdis och George Innes. Exakt när den här visades på svensk TV har jag ingen aning om, än mindre vad den svenska titeln var. "Titta, vi jobbar", kanske?
Såhär presenteras serien på DVD-samlingens baksida:

“Maybe we’re not ready for the outside world.”
“Is the outside world ready for us?”

This light-hearted series, aimed at teenage viewers, charts the unsteady progress of Mike and Pete, two 16-year-old school-leavers who are suddenly forced to ponder the bewildering but urgent question: what are they going to do for a living? As Mike and Pete’s efforts to avoid the dole queue land them a succession of disastrous jobs, 4 Idle Hands humorously details the unremitting difficulties of adolescence. First screened in 1976, the series features an early TV role for future Quadrophenia and EastEnders star Phil Daniels, with George Innes, Royston Tickner and Howard Goorney taking on the principal adult roles. The series is available here for the first time on DVD.
Life’s never been easy for school-leavers, and Mike Dudds and Pete Sutton are no different to millions of others. Neither has a vocation to follow, or any demonstrable skills. Their sense of responsibility is slowly maturing, but they still can’t resist practical jokes - like wrapping a master’s car in toilet rolls. They are the despair of the careers officer, and find themselves drifting from job to job - Mike reluctant to use his keen intellect, and Pete with his head filled with romantic but highly unlikely ambitions.
