Barry Norman (1933-2017) was a British tv presenter and film critic.
Portrayal on "Spitting Image"Edit
Norman was usually used whenever Hollywood actors and directors were spoofed. The puppet 's catch phrase "And why not?" was later used by the real Norman as the title of his autobiography. However, the real Norman wasn't very pleased with his puppet version since the doll had a large inexplicable fictious wart on its forehead.
