1 9 5 7 – 1 9 5 8 (UK)
10 x 30 minute episodes

This early BBC comedy series starring Bob Monkhouse as a smarmy clever dick with a serious Brylcreem habit was written by Monkhouse and Denis Goodwin (who also narrated the show).

Guests included Billie Whitelaw, Jill Adams, Pat Coombs, Kenneth Connor, Hugh Lloyd, Anthea Askey, Irene Handl, Arthur Mullard, June Whitfield and Esmond Knight.

All recorded episodes were thought to have been destroyed until it was discovered that Monkhouse had kept a number of episodes in his own private archive.
