Trivia

Les can be seen wearing a bandage on some part of his body in practically every show. We eventually find out it is because he has a very large (and never-seen) dog that he keeps at home. In real-life, the bandage idea originated when Richard Sanders suffered an injury prior to the taping of the pilot and was forced to wear a bandage on the air; he subsequently decided to make it Les' trademark.
