To enable the release to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the Christopher Columbus voyage to America, Rogers commissioned Dave Freeman to produce a script in record time. like his screen persona: a heavy-drinking womanizer, simultaneously breezy and likeable and pathetic. However, by the late 1960s, at the height of the series' success, more ambitious plots occasionally necessitated locations further afield, which included Snowdonia National Park, Wales (with the foot of Snowdon standing in for the Khyber Pass in Carry On Up the Khyber), and the beaches of the Sussex coast doubling as Saharan sand dunes in Follow That Camel. Norman Hudis was initially asked back to produce a script for what would be the 23rd Carry On film of the series.

The success of the films led to several spin-offs, including four Christmas television specials (1969–1973), a 1975 television series of 13 episodes and three West End stage shows that also toured the United Kingdom. Carry On Emmannuelle, inspired by the soft-porn Emmanuelle, brought to an end the original Carry On run.Carry On Smoking (1961), revolving around a fire station and various attempts to train a bungling group of new recruits. As most will know, it was one of three films put into production for the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America, along with 1942: Conquest of Paradise (the Ridley Scott one) and Christopher Columbus: The Discovery (the one with Brando). When that too was successful, further forays with Carry On Teacher and Carry On Constable established the series. The film also featured a cameo by the series 's composer Eric Rogers as the band leader in the saloon bar.

The deal was confirmed within days on the condition that the Carry On prefix be omitted due to its close association to Anglo Amalgamated. During general release, the "Carry On" prefix was added back and the films received an extended release.The failure was attributed to the film's political theme about the trade union movement as it portrayed the union activists as incompetent troublemakers. As the two biggest hits of the series and the two biggest films of their year from any source at the UK box office, it is amazing they haven't been upgraded. Clips from several Carry On films are used in In The Movies It Doesn't Hurt (1975), a short film on laboratory safety for schools starring Bernard Bresslaw.
