Only 12 episodes were produced.

" 'Nutter' runs small hotel" is the terse-but-true description given by an English catalog to the weekly comedy series Fawlty Towers. Created by John Cleese, the series stars Cleese as Basil Fawlty, the insufferable--and insufferably inept--owner-manager of a tenth-rate British hotel. Co-starring as Basil's equally impossible wife Sybil is Prunella Scales, while Connie Booth (who co-wrote and occasionally directed the series) is on hand as Jill-of-all trades Polly Sherman. First seen on the BBC in 1975, Fawlty Towers made it to American viewers by way of local PBS outlets in 1978. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Close

A really funny show about trying to run a hotel that is falling apart, a must see!

Fawlty Towers follows the exploits of Basil and Sybil Fawlty.  Basil (John Cleese) is a crude and overbearing man who's rude to his guests and berates the hired help.  Sybil (Prunella Scales) is Basil's better half, a wife who's always riding Basil driving him up a wall.  Manuel (Andrew Sachs) is the bellhop/waiter who bears the brunt of Basil's abuse ans his poor command of the English language is fodder for comic relief.  Polly (Connie Booth) is the maid who's also an artist.  …
