  • He first appears in the sketch "It's a Man's Life in the Modern Army" from "Owl-Stretching Time," interrupting a sketch in which appeared the phrase, "IT'S A MAN'S LIFE IN THE CARDIFF ROOMS, LIBYA," and he accuses it of being stolen from the Army's slogan, "It's a man's life in the modern army." He does the same to another sketch for using the phrase, "It's a man's life taking your clothes off in public," and another for using the phrase "It's a man's life in the British Dental Association," which prompts him to end the programme.
