Of course there are others who also had their own shows but I didn't include Mel & Sue(about as close to being a female Morecambe & Wise as you can get) as they are women and this was for male double acts of which there are considerably more but French and Saunders were by far the most successful female double act. I wouldn't obviously remember Gert and Daisy let alone the Crazy Gang or for that matter Jewel(Jimmy) and Warris(Ben) I only put the names of double acts I would have seen and remembered.

I'm wondering about Benny Hill and Henry McGee.

They were never officially a double act but Hill was always very generous about McGee's role in the success of his TV shows - a very able and adaptable actor/straight man who could be infectiously funny in his own right.

Benny Hill was probably more known for his 'stooges' like Nicholas Parsons, Bella Emberg and of course Jackie Wright(the bald-headed man) I don't think he was ever part of a major double act, so Henry McGee like Bob Todd, Anna Dawson and others were just stooges. They were all good foils to Hill and of course his friends off screen as well.

I can't believe that nobody has mentioned those giants of comedy, the Chuckle Brothers

I left them out because they weren't doing stand up routines or face-to-face type comedy on mainstream television. They were around in the clubs for a long time but believe it or not it was on childrens' BBC(as it was once known) dressed in dog costumes as the Chuckle Brothers that they made their mark-one belting the other in a comic way in comic situations. Thankfully they then ditched the costumes and were themselves(Paul and Barry) and became a cult amongst the young and the old alike. Yes they were a double act, but not known by their names for it...to me, to you!

I vaguely recall they styled themselves "ChuckleHounds" in that guise.
