Early in his career, he released a number of comedy records, including “Right Said Fred” — in which a group of workmen struggle to move a large unspecified object, possibly a piano — and “Hole in the Ground”.

Appearing in many British films, including three Carry On films, the second Doctor Who film and The Railway Children, Cribbins was also the narrator of the British animated children’s TV series The Wombles, a BBC radio adaptation of The Wind in the Willows and many episodes of Jackanory.
