Storyline

Selwyn Froggitt, a well read clumsy buffoon smashes his way through his sleepy Yorkshire village of Scarsdale in these 30 minute 1970's comedies. Starring Bill Maynard in the title role, he creates this loveable Oaf perfectly, cushioned by a terrific supporting cast of character actors. Referring to The Times supplement for his knowledgeable information, with shovel in hand his schemes and plans create a fitting end to every episode. Disaster ! Written by peter cownley

I agree with the previous comments about Selwyn Froggitt, but ...
19 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

... 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?
