Was a Czechoslovak stop-animation tv show. About two neighbours who would go on to extreme measures to solve generally self-made problems, creating gadgets made from everyday materials, which would only further create problems. They are inept, but they were generally able to get the result by some stroke of luck.

It was a classic staple of television across the Eastern Bloc, usually appearing as the Goodnight show like Sandmännchen in the DDR, or Ну, погоди! (Nu, pogodi!)

I remember watching this when I was very young. Here's a sample of an episode.

Wow thanks. I had a really good laugh at that, especially when they pulled the electrical socket right out of the wall.
This show seems to have had really good production values, and I especially loved the sound effects and the fast motion style.
