Tributes flow for star of Kingswood Country, dead at 86

Tributes are flowing for star of hit 80’s TV show Kingswood Country, Ross Higgins, who has died aged 86.

Ross played the unforgettable character, Ted Bullpitt, passed away in hospital on Friday.


Higgins also voiced Louie The Fly.

Bullpitt may not have survived in today’s age of political correctness.  He called his Italian son-in-law “a bloody wog”, his own son was a “randy little bugger”.

Ted made catchphrases like “you’re not taking the Kingswood!” commonplace in Australian households.

The series ran for 89 episodes over four years from 1980 and made “pickle me grandmother” and “grumblebum” famous across the country.

Higgins also had a career in radio.
