George Cole starred in the successful carry-over of this 30-minute comedy series from radio to television, playing the part of David Bliss, a shy and gullible young bachelor prone to verbal gaffes and jumping to incorrect conclusions.
His pet dog, Psyche (a wire-haired fox terrier), was ‘voiced’ by animal impersonator Percy Edwards.
Sheila Sweet starred as his girlfriend, Isabel Dean as his sister Anne and Colin Gordon as his brother-in-law.
Two series were made, written and produced by Godfrey Harrison.
The second series saw Bliss move in with his sister Pam (Frances Bennett) and her husband (Hugh Sinclair) where his natural talent for verbal gaffes continued unabated.
