The Chronicles of Des and Mick is very much character-driven, with totally ridiculous and unrealistic plotlines about a bunch of people with too much time on their hands.
For example - Des and Mick and Des's Pet Slug, Des and Mick Go Caravanning, Des Redevelops His Garden, Des and Mick Investigate Corn Circles, Des's Supersonic Car, Des and the Talking Teddy Bears, Des Gets Funky, Des and Mick Go Banger Racing, Elvis is a Dangerous Man, Des Sees the Future, Men on Mars, DMTV and around 150 others.
Des Wednesday and Mick Woolley are next-door neighbours who live in an ordinary suburban street in Tolworth, Surrey, UK. Mick would probably be living a nice quiet ordinary life if it wasn't for having Des the lunatic living next door to him. Des has a nasty habit of coming up with mad ideas, which, however hard he tries, Mick always manages to get mixed up in.
But then it gets worse. Just across the road lives Wayne Coach the window cleaner, who has a mental age of about four. His main purpose is to make Des look clever.
On the other hand, making Des look extremely stupid is his other next-door neighbour, the smarmy Clive Kippers. The BMW-driving Clive is always ready to slip in a snide comment, and usually manages to be right when Des is wrong. They are sworn enemies.
Just down the road, on the corner, is Mrs Greasy's Little Cafe. Mrs G is known across the area as the worst cook in the world, yet she still can't understand why no one ever comes to her cafe, except for the regular gang who hold their regular meetings there while trying to avoid eating the revolting rubbish she serves them (except Wayne who loves it).
The above characters comprise the main core of the stories, but there are several other characters who make regular appearances, including the barmy pig farmer Farmer Files, the lunatic Mike the Manic Mechanic, Dickie the Vicar, Elvis-impersonator Dave Presley, and Des's busybody Aunty Phyllis.
Making more occasional visits are the defective detectives Sherlock Bones and Doctor Whoson.
