I agree with the previous comments; this was a fantastic show. That there are other people out there who remember it just as fondly must mean I was right (and that I hadn't imagined the whole thing).
I only ever saw the episodes about once each, most likely when they were first aired (late 80's?). Though this was over fifteen years ago, and the episodes were mere minutes in length, 'Dick Spanner' has stuck in my mind; it was funny and slightly surreal. Sadly I didn't have the foresight to commit any of them to VHS.
'Dick Spanner' is long overdue for a DVD release and it thoroughly deserves one.
