My name's Harry Worth. I don't know why, but there it is!
comedy series built around the well meaning but
muddle-headed and nervous Harry Worth and his ineffectual
attempts to do the right thing. With the stalwart support
of Hugh Lloyd (later to star in Hugh and I) and the
opening credits of Harry appearing to levitate himself in
the shop window.
His character was perfectly summed up in a scene where he attempted to by a rail ticket and asked the ticket-clerk for a return fare. "Where to, sir?" came the clerk's response. To which Harry replied innocently, "Well, back here of course!"
He lived at 52 Acacia Avenue with his cat, Tiddles and his, often referred to but never seen, aunt Mrs Amelia Prendergast. A semi-regular supporting cast of characters included his housekeeper, Mrs Benson (Doris Gambell) Alf (Joe Gladwin) and Tommy (Reginald Marsh).
