Only Fools and Horses

Only Fools and Horses is a hugely popular British sitcom on the BBC, which started in 1981. The last full series of Fools and horses was made in 1992 but special episodes are still made occasionally.

The central characters are Del Boy (Derek Trotter) played by David Jason, his younger brother Rodney Trotter played by Nicholas Lyndhurst, and Uncle Albert played by Buster Merryfield[?].

The name of the show is also referenced in the title song, and appears to be based on an old saying: "Only fools and horses work (for a living)", which is a reference to Del's tax-and-work-evading lifestyle.
