Jonny Briggs

“MY MOTHER…” “Who’s a nurse!” Premium loaf lampoonery revolving around stereotyped Yorkshire clan, home to the titular tyke (RICHARD HOLIAN) and his twittering brood headed by LESLIE SCHOFIELD and JANE LOWE, with Kevin Webster’s sister thrown in for good measure. Smashing stuff, done properly just for laughs with the odd surreal escapade along the way (“Ere, I never noticed that cellar door before!” “That’s because it were never there before!”). Our Jonny forever given the runaround at school by mischevious twins Jinny and Josie. Every episode had dog Razzle running off and running amok. Nice one.

    Could never understand a word these Northern people were saying.

    Nothing to do with Mike Baldwin either.

    Another one of those shows whose theme tune aroused the interest of whoever was manning the Broom Cupboard at the time (it was either Andy Crane or Schofield) because they “air tromboned” the elongated note at the beginning.
