The Young Ones was ballistic but how many people remember A Small Problem or Roll Over Beethoven? There was also Al Fresco, a sketch / sitcom hybrid. If you like sketches you won't like it, but if you like sitcoms, you won't like it. Because it's crap. Strange considering the calibre of the performers.
Slightly off topic but I've been digging out some old Tales of the Unexpected and there are some fascinating sitcommer appearances: Kurt and the Yank from Fawlty Towers, Miriam Margoyles, Richard Briers, Patricia Routledge, Jim Broadbent...

Easily by a long and way shot and half the worst episode.
Not really a sitcom but one of the house band in the much maligned Hello Mum found success writing for Mr Bean.
