Nice 'n Juicy is set on a rundown citrus orchard in the fictitious town of Wyvern Creek, in New South Wales. The property is left to Jack and Mort Hamlin by their father, in his will. Jack, is conservative and wishes to develop the old family property but Mort wants to sell up and move to the bright lights of Sydney and live high on the profits. Rosie Withers is Mort's girlfriend and Ada Withers is Rosie's battleaxe mother. Myrtle is a hen who shares the brothers' squalid broken-down farmhouse.[1]



Plumb wrote in her memoirs that "we were a happy little bunch of vegemites and thought we were being very funny. The ABC hated it. 'Too raw' they said and cancelled the series after thirteen episodes."[2]
