* AcceptableTargets (Besides Corbett himself for being short - the two later observed in a documentary that "You can't do 'stupid Irishman' jokes anymore, but you can if you just change them to being about 'yokels', because no-one's going to call in and say 'I'm a yokel and this offends me!' Hence the two yokel characters)
* HilariousInHindsight: The show was famously (and controversially) parodied by [[Series/AlasSmithAndJones Mel Smith and Gryff Rhys-Jones]] on ''NotTheNineOClockNews'', who pointed out its over-reliance on double-entendre and a format that had remained unchanged, and rather stale, since 1971. Years later, the Two Ronnies (still popular) came back to present the compilation 'The Two Ronnies Sketchbook'... only to have the format copied by Smith and Jones for 'The Smith and Jones Sketchbook'!
