The other regular cast members were Maurie Fields as Bobby’s father Fred – a former vaudeville performer who re-enters Bobby’s life (and moves into Bobby’s flat) after an absence of many years, and Olivia Hamnett as Bobby’s officious manager Della McDermott (referred to behind her back as “Dracula’s daughter”).

Terry Norris also appeared in a support role, as Bobby’s Uncle Oz. Carla Hoogeveen featured in a storyline that spanned three episodes as Bobby’s girlfriend Allison.

The series aired on the Australian Seven network during the summer of 1977/78.
