Les Nessman's Bandage - A running visual gag on the sitcom WKRP IN CINCINNATI/CBS/1978-82 centered around Les Nessman (Richard Sanders), the news director at WKRP radio station in Cincinnati.

Les Nessman with Bandaged Head - WKRP IN CINCINNATI

Each episode, Les wore a bandage on some part of his body. Sometimes it was on his head, the next on his fingers or hand.

The gimmick began when Richard Sanders injured himself on the first episode of the series and covered his cut with a small adhesive bandage.

The bandage bit was continued when the series returned in syndication on THE NEW WKRP IN CINCINNATI/SYN/1991-93. Look for the bandage the next time your watching the show, it's always on the move.

TRIVIA NOTE: On the British series FATHER TED/C4/1995-98, a similar phenomenon occurs with the mole on the face of rectory housekeeper Mrs. Doyle (Pauline McGlynn) a.k.a. "The Housekeeper from Hell." Between the first and second series the mole moves from one side of her face to the other. In the third installment it vanished altogether.
