Along with Morecambe & Wise, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett as The Two Ronnies are the most famous comedy duo in the history of British TV.

Helped by good writers, including Spike Milligan, for the serial, 'The Phantom Raspberry Blower Of Old London Town', The Two Ronnies was must-see entertainment in the '70s and '80s.

Wordplay was a vital ingredient for the show, including some of the most popular sketches of all, such as 'UNEX ("You any eggs?")' and 'Fork Handles'. Also important were the song and dance routines (the boys loved dressing up in drag), 'news' items, Ronnie Corbett's monologue, and, of course, the guest stars.

Ronnie Barker died on October 3rd, 2005 - just after a period of the BBC putting together compilations of the best of The Two Ronnies, entitled 'The Two Ronnies Sketchbook', which were fronted by Ronnie B and Ronnie C, who introduced some of the show's classic sketches.
