Roy Walker comes to mind,
This review is from: The Best of Dick Emery [DVD] (DVD)
Roy Walker comes to mind with this Dick Emery DVD ''Its good but its not right''. True all the characters are featured like ''I got it wrong dad!"but the dad I associate with this sketch is Roy Kinnear BUT no Roy Kinnear on this compilation. Likewise where is Pat Coombes, another regular but not featured here and very little of Helen (Bad Girls) Fraser in her comedic days.
After watching Stanley Baxter on TV this Christmas why not release a BBC dvd - he did plenty of shows for the BBC. The LWT shows have come out so why not BBC - I expect it won't be the best but probably better than nothing.

Originally, the character who moaned the tag-line to the silent, off-screen (and not-present) dad was nameless. It was only in later series Roy Kinnear added a new dimension as the 'dad' who called his son "Gaylord" - hilarious to the schoolkids we were at the time!
