Oh No! It’s Selwyn Froggitt (ITV 1976-1977, Bill Maynard)

Selwyn Froggitt

Sitcom. The misadventures of the irrepressible and slightly deranged Selwyn Froggitt in the Yorkshire town of Scarsdale. Selwyn was on the committee of his local working men’s club and worked for the Public Works Department of the Council.

No matter how much Selwyn made a mess of things he remained convinced that if he stuck his thumbs up in the air and said Magic then everything would be alright.

A brief sequel later emerged called just Selwyn and putting Selwyn in charge of the entertainment at the Paradise Valley holiday camp.
