Cribbins also had surprising success with novelty records in 1962. Composed by songwriters Ted Dicks and Myles Rudge, ‘The Hole In The Ground’ and ‘Right Said Fred’ were both placed in the UK Top 10, while Trevor Peacock’s ‘Gossip Calypso’ reached number 25. ‘Right Said Fred’ later inspired the name of a camp 90s pop act. Cribbins’ only other release was in 1967 with ‘When I’m Sixty-Four’/‘Oh My Word’.

His television appearances include The Night Of The Big Heat, Interpol Calling (both 1960), several episodes of Comedy Playhouse (1963-66), as a regular storyteller in Jackanory (1965), The Avengers (1968), his own series, Cribbins (1969), narrator of The Wombles (1973), Fawlty Towers (1975), Simon In The Land Of Chalk Drawings (1976), The Plank (1979), Tales Of The Unexpected, the title role in Cuffy (both 1983) and he was narrator of Original Sylvanian Families (1988).

Um, John and Paul were paying homage to vintage English music hall on that and many of the other songs on Sgt. Pepper. They didn't invent the sound; they borrowed it.

As for the song, it's a Beatles song, from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
