Popular British comedian Terry Scott was best known for starring in Happy Ever After, a sitcom about an unhappily married middle-class couple that ran from 1974 to 1988. Back in the mid-'50s, when he was just starting out, the BBC paired the portly Scott with fellow funnyman Bill Maynard and starred them in Great Scott! It's Maynard. In the 1960s, Scott starred in Hugh and I with Hugh Lloyd. In film, Scott was a regular in the Carry On series of films that were popular during 1960s and 1970s. He also appeared in other British films, including I'm All Right Jack (1959), The Night We Got the Bird (1961), and A Ghost of a Chance (1969).
