All Change is an English children's television show on ITV in two series. Originally broadcast in 1989 and 1991, it starred Frankie Howerd, Peggy Mount, Maggie Steed, Tony Haygarth and Pam Ferris. The series was devised by Morwenna Banks and Chris England.

The storyline concerned the deceased Uncle Bob's families and who would inherit his fortune. One branch was poor and common, the other branch was rich and snobbish. Each family had two parents, a son and a daughter. The families swapped lives (although one child stayed in their own home with the newcomers) in order to see who could cope best with their new circumstances and the victors would inherit Uncle Bob's money. At the end of the first series, it was all revealed as a hoax and no-one was any better off. The second series concerned the two families working together in a factory which produced pottery gnomes.
