Episodes of ChuckleVision are usually independent. The basic plot to each show is the brothers undertaking some sort of job, task or adventure. They are often employed by a character known as No Slacking, who is always played by the brothers' real-life brother, Jimmy Patton. The Patton Brothers, Jimmy and Brian are the two elder brothers of Paul and Barry Chuckle The Chuckle Brothers. No Slacking is meant to be a different character in every episode he appears in; however, he is always known by this name owing to the catchphrase he always says to get the bumbling brothers to work properly. No Slacking usually appears several times in each series, although in recent years this number has been reduced to once or twice a series. In each episode his life is either ruined or otherwise inconvenienced by Paul and Barry. A large amount of the comedy is based on slapstick. Slapstick is a type of Comedy involving exaggerated physical violence or activities which exceed the boundaries of common sense such as a character being hit in the face with
However, on occasion, the jobs they carry out can be somewhat surreal or put them in surreal circumstances, this was very much enforced in the recent years of chucklevision. Once, they babysat for a boy who got out of his bed, leaving a football on his pillow, leading them to believe that his head had come off. Football is the word given to a number of similar Team sports all of which involve (to varying degrees kicking a Ball with the foot in an attempt to score a Another episode involves Barry being able to see a invisible Leprecaun which paul cannot see.
The duo also often carry out jobs and tasks given to them by "Dan the Van", who is never seen, except in one episode where the Chuckle brothers decide it upon them to make sure he arrives to the special meeting. However, Dan the Van's face cannot be seen, as he is covered in bandages all over, and wearing dark shades. In other episodes, we hear of, or sometimes see relatives of Dan the van, for example his Grandmother Lettuce the van appears in Chuckle and the pea and his niece can be seen in Dim waiters.
Their other real brother, Brian Patton, (who is a double act with Jimmy, The Patton Brothers) has appeared on and off since 1995. The Patton Brothers, Jimmy and Brian are the two elder brothers of Paul and Barry Chuckle The Chuckle Brothers. Year 1995 ( MCMXCV) was a Common year starting on Sunday. Events of 1995 His character can often be heard to say "Get out of it" or "I may have misjudged you".

An exception to the usual format of stand-alone episodes came with the fourteenth series, broadcast in 2002. See also 2002 (disambiguation Year 2002 ( MMII) was a Common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. This used a continuous storyline involving the brothers' hunt for a missing ruby. A Ruby is a pink to blood-red Gemstone, a variety of the Mineral Corundum ( Aluminium oxide) They continued a similar trend in the next 2 series, with two 3 part stories in series 15, entitled The Purple Pimple and Magnetic barry. A two part story called Incredible Shrinking barry appears in series 16. From series 17 onwards, this trend hasn't been repeated.
Paul is the dominant of the two; it's often due to his blind confidence that the two end up in bother. When he realises he has made a mistake, he often blames Barry and also tends to make Barry do the hard work and takes the credit for himself. However, by the end, poetic justice is usually done and if either brother is to come out on top at the end of the episode, it will invariably be Barry. Poetic justice is a literary device in which Virtue is ultimately Rewarded or Vice punished, often in modern literature by an However, this war between the brothers only happens in about half the episodes. The classic episodes of the show often ended with the brothers running away from some angered third party they had been trying to help.
Barry and Paul have a number of catch phrases, some of which involve one brother replying to the other brother's line. A catch phrase (or catchphrase) is a phrase or expression recognized by its repeated utterance Thus "To me" receives the reply "To you", and "'Course it is, silly me" is met with "Silly you". The line "Oh dear" is regularly followed by "Oh dear, oh dear", and sometimes by "Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear". This was inspired by the BBC comedy Hi-de-Hi!, in which the character Spike used to say "oh dear, oh dear, oh dear" when something bad had happened. Hi-de-Hi! is a British sitcom that aired on BBC1 from 1980 to 1988
There are often references made to Rotherham United F.C., whom the brothers support in real life.

C and scores an own goal.

Series 14, along with the continuing storyline, saw another change, the length of the show was reduced from the usual 20 minuite episode which ran from series 4 to 13, now cut to 15 minuites. The main reason behind this was due to the BBC re-organising the shedudle, this was also the reason why the BBC edited series 12 and 13 to fit in with the new 15 minuite length.
Due to Paul and Barry having other commitments, series 20 only has six episodes; this is the first time they have had only six episodes in a whole series.
The BBC have respectfully allowed the brothers to continue making as many episodes as they want, but a 21st series has not been confirmed.
In The 8th episode of Series four, entitled Bowl-derash, the theme tune was slightly altered. This theme tune has remained ever since, but was shortened in the seventeenth series and also edited for the shortened versions of Series 12 and 13. All the episodes in the fourteenth series display the BBC logo on the title scene, but none of the episodes from other series show this logo. Since the 2002 series during the end credits, outtakes and goofs are usually shown. See also 2002 (disambiguation Year 2002 ( MMII) was a Common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar.
