Johnnie Mortimer (1930-2 September 1992) started out as a cartoonist, later wrote series for radio such as Men from the Ministry and Round the Horne, before writing many TV situation comedies including Man about the House, Never the Twain, Robin's Nest and George and Mildred, often working in partnership with Brian Cooke. A version of Man about the House later transferred to America under the name Three's Company.

The two of them also wrote two plays, the first a theatrical version of George and Mildred (later renamed When the Cat's Away after the death of actress Yootha Joyce who played Mildred). The second was called Situation Comedy, and featured two TV situation comedy writers struggling to come up with an idea for a new series (in the end they write a stage play instead).
