Midget performer Jimmy Clitheroe, one of Britain's most beloved entertainers, rose to fame with his characterization of a mischievous schoolboy. Among Clitheroe's many radio, TV, and stage vehicles was "The Clitheroe Kid," first heard on the BBC home service in 1959. Inevitably, the property made the transition to television, beginning November 29, 1964. Retitled Just Jimmy, the 45-episode series featured the 4'2" Clitheroe's perennial cohorts, Mollie Sugden (as Jimmy's mum) and Danny Ross (as Cousin Danny). Just Jimmy remained on the air until 1968; Jimmy Clitheroe himself lived until 1973.
