The show screened in Australia on SBS Television and The Comedy Channel between 2003 and 2008
Dick Rogers (Seth MacFarlane): A stereotypical fast-talking 1940s detective whose sketches appear in black-and-white. He'll often call to complain about issues that would make someone from the 1940s uncomfortable, such as being hit on by men at a gay bar or getting a haircut from a female hairdresser. He also calls the YMCA for help with his alcohol problem.
