Has the loadsamoney single been mentioned yet? Never listened to it but I'm sure it exists. So does Hello John Got a New Motor which was I think was Sayled to an advert for Toshiba.
The Toshiba advert song was a rip-off of Sayle's record, and was performed by Ian Dury.

Not quite a comedy character, but Worzel Gummidge had a single that was chilling. A mariachi song telling kids they might end up dead if they talked to strangers. Can’t find it though.

Everything about that is disquieting, not least of all the key change towards the end.

"No matter what is said, you could just end up dead"  *cue the cheerful trumpets*

A bit rich of Worzel Gummidge to lecture children on the finer points of stranger danger, given that he, as a stranger, was only too happy to befriend two children.  Especially given that perhaps the biggest danger of all is a middle-aged homeless man with straw stuffed down his pants.  Still, it's a worthy life lesson in general, I suppose.  After all, they're never too young to drill a lifelong crippling phobia of other people into their tiny fertile minds.

I also just noticed that I've got a comment underneath that Worzel Gummidge YouTube video from a year ago and yet, I genuinely have zero recollection of having ever listened to that song before.
