Potter was a 1979 BBC sitcom written by Roy Clarke. Running for three series, it originally starred Arthur Lowe as Redvers Potter, a busybody former sweet manufacturer with time on his hands following retirement. Set in suburban South London, the series followed Potter in his various attempts to keep himself occupied by interfering in other people's business. The series co-starred Noel Dyson as his wife Aileen, John Barron as the Vicar and John Warner as "Tolly" Tolliver, his next-door neighbour. Characters in later series included Harry H. Corbett as the comic ex-gangster Harry Tooms and Brenda Cowling as Jane. The first series comprised 6 episodes, and aired in March-April, 1979. The second series comprised 7 episodes, and aired the following year, from February-April, 1980. Plans for a third series were already underway when Lowe died, so Lowe was replaced by Robin Bailey in the 7-episode third series, which aired the following year between July-August 1983, after which the series was discontinued. Mark Lewisohn notes that although many of the characters were sitcom clichés "they seemed less so in the skilled hands of writer Roy Clarke, who had already proved a master of naturally humorous dialogue".
Potter Puppet Pals is a puppet show web series parodying the Harry Potter novel series by JK Rowling, created by Neil Cicierega. The first two episodes were animated, both released in 2003 on Newgrounds. On September 26, 2006, the series was re-launched on YouTube under Cicierega's page as "Potions Class". Six more episodes were released by Cicierega between 2006 and 2009. Approximately one year after the seventh episode was released, a new video appeared on Neil's channel announcing an exclusive Potter Puppet Pals channel. On the same day, three more videos were released on this page. The Potter Puppet Pals make appearances at some Harry Potter parties, such as Yule Balls 2007 and 2010. Both the original animated episodes, as well as the first seven live-action episodes, have been published to the official Potter Puppet Pals webpage.
