Baggy Pants and the Nitwits

ANOTHER OF those cartoon double-bill “sandwiches” that spread like, indeed, nits during the 1970s (see the ALL-NEW POPEYE SHOW). Sauntering up first came wise-cracking moggy Baggy Pants, who re-enacted old Chaplin routines before giving way to the Nitwits, a decrepid crime-fighting duo Gladys and Tyrone, bizarrely based on characters from Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In. Now safely confined to the arse end of nowhere.

    This must be one of my earliest childhood memories. It’d probably be gash if I saw it nowadays, but I still remember Gladys and Tyrone with some fondness.
