Le Comte de Frou Frou appeared in Blackadder the Third. He was presumably a foppish, disgruntled, homesick French aristocrat (played by Tim McInnerny). The character was forced to flee his home country for England, in order to escape the French Revolution. He was later revealed to be a disguise adopted by Prince George's friend Lord Topper, alias one half of the Scarlet Pimpernel. He is later killed when Blackadder tricks him into ingesting poison to prevent him revealing Blackadder's deceit.


Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The name of the character first appeared in an early-1980s Not The Nine O'clock News sketch, where, as the Belgian Chargé d'Affaires, (played by Rowan Atkinson), he attempted to explain to Mel Smith the finer points of Belgian table manners.
