Sitcom The Incredible Mr Tanner told of the exploits of street entertainer and escapologist Ernest Tanner and his assistant Sidney Pratt. Ernest isn’t a particularly good escapologist, but the pair somehow manage to earn enough money to get by. When they’re not working, Ernest and Sidney spend their time in a seedy cafe run by Archie (Tony Melody).

The characters (with different names) were first seen in an episode of The Ronnie Barker Playhouse and the series Kindly Leave The Kerb.
