To round off this Gilbert remembrance week we revisit Titus, Sleepy and Myrtle in their episode of Titus in Town called “Kilbert” for this edition of Jamaican Echoes’ Blast from the Past post.
In this 1990 episode, the characters depict the typical behaviour of many Jamaicans in reaction to hurricane Gilbert and Jamaica before (Myrtle preparing for the hurricane while Titus and Sleepy make fun of her and leave for Hellshire) during (Titus and Sleepy hastily returning to Myrtle at her employers’ home to seek shelter) and after the storm (Titus, Sleepy and Myrtle as they “stan’ to profit from people’s distress”.)
