Mercilessly lampooned on Little Britain (2003) as a midget
whose keeps losing contracts by insisting on singing the theme song for
the proposed show. Waterman got his revenge by making a surprise
appearance in the charity presentation
Comic Relief Does Little Britain: Live (2007), interrupting
Walliams and Lucas performing a version of their Dennis Waterman
sketch. During his appearance, Waterman gets to complain that he does
not have a high voice, is not "a midget," and does not sing or write
the theme tune of all his shows. To apologize, Walliams and Lucas
perform one of Waterman's songs with him.
