That's My Boy! - The Complete Series
Diminutive variety star Jimmy Clitheroe was the perpetual schoolboy whose abundant Northern humour charmed and entertained a generation of British audiences. Employing his four-foot, three-inch stature and mischievous persona to brilliant comic effect, he proved phenomenally popular in every medium from theatre to film and records, with The Clitheroe Kid, one of Britain's longest-running radio sitcoms, drawing a peak audience of 10 million and spawning numerous catchphrases.
In 1963 Clitheroe's roguish creation hit television screens, causing further mischief for his fictional family in this ABC sitcom co-starring ITMA veteran (and future Please Sir! star) Deryck Guyler, and airing in the Midlands and northern England only.
Presenting all seven half-hour episodes of That's My Boy, along with the last remaining episode - Series 1, Episode 2 - of sequel series Just Jimmy (also starring Mollie Sugden), this set celebrates a uniquely talented yet now largely forgotten star, and introduces The Kid Himself to a new generation of classic comedy fans.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
