I agree with the previous comments about Selwyn Froggitt, but ...
... as a Statesider who spent a sabbatical year in Sidmouth 1978-79, I must take exception to the lack of respect for the followup show, "Selwyn." I'm happy to have been able to get all but the last season of "Oh No, . . ." on videotape before Yorkshire TV decided to discontinue it, but "Selwyn"'s best moments are every bit as hilarious as "Oh No, . . ."'s. One episode in particular, in which Selwyn ties up a checkout queue by trying to be helpful by coming up with exact change is still a high-water mark in gestural/physical comedy for me. Paul Lynde showing the photos of his disastrous safari adventure in "New Faces" is the only such one-man cameo I've ever laughed harder at (& that was live in Chicago back in 1952). The question is, why won't Yorkshire release all the Selwyn episodes for the whole world to enjoy and cherish?
