Jimmy Clitheroe - That's My Boy

Born in Clitheroe, Lancashire, in 1921, diminutive variety star Jimmy Clitheroe was the perpetual schoolboy whose abundant Northern humour charmed and entertained a generation of British audiences until his untimely death in 1973, aged just 51. Employing his four-foot, three-inch stature and mischievous persona to brilliant comic effect, he proved phenomenally popular in every medium from theatre to film and records, with The Clitheroe Kid, one of Britain's longest-running radio sitcoms, drawing a peak audience of 10 million and spawning numerous catchphrases!

Jimmy Clitheroe - That's My Boy

In 1963 Clitheroe's roguish creation hit television screens, causing further mischief for his fictional family in this ABC sitcom co-starring ITMA veteran (and future Please Sir! star) Deryck Guyler, and airing in the Midlands and northern England only. Presenting all seven half-hour episodes of That's My Boy, along with the last remaining episode of sequel series Just Jimmy (also starring Mollie Sugden), this set celebrates a uniquely talented yet now largely forgotten star, and introduces The Kid Himself to a new generation of classic comedy fans.
