''Dinner for One'', also known as ''The 90th Birthday'', was a popular British {{vaudeville}} sketch that gained world fame after being recorded for German television in 1963. While they were at it, the same actors also made a version for Swiss television, with only a few modifications.[[note]]The German version has survived in a copy of the original videotape - the Swiss versio is preserved on a film recording with optical sound, and is therefore of inferior quality.[[/note]]

* NoExportForYou: On several occasions, the Creator/{{BBC}} have asked German television for copies of ''Dinner for One'', and received it. What they're doing with these copies is anyone's guess, since the sketch has yet to be shown on British television.

* LongRunner: A sketch probably written in the 1920s and recorded for TV in 1963 has been aired on German TV every single New Year's Eve since 1972. And it seems to get new remakes every years (while one can still watch the original several times that day by switching channels).

This short comical play subsequently became the most frequently repeated TV program ever, according to the Guinness Book of Records. The 18-minute black-and-white 1963 TV recording, featuring British comedians Freddie Frinton and May Warden, has become an integral component of the New Year's Eve television schedule of several countries.

This has a very great deal to do with the extremely physical nature of the comedy - similar to the international success of Series/MrBean.
