Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In his last regular TV series, British comic actor Norman Rossington starred as Norman Tripper, the harried manager of Supafare, a suburban London supermarket. The six half-hour episodes focused upon Tripper's tipplings with his inept coworkers and his contentious customers. Debuting September 24, 1984, Tripper's Day was seen on ITV's Thames Television service until October 29 of the same year. A second season of episodes was planned, but the death of Norman Rossington necessitated a cast change and a new title, Slinger's Day. Created by Brian Cooke, the series served as the basis for the Canadian-American sitcom Check It Out, which starred Don Adams.
