Portrayal on Spitting Image[]

A lot of jokes about Daniels where about his bald head and toupées. One sketch, a parody of "One Man and his Dog" featured Daniels and his toupée as "One Man and his Wig."

The real Daniels first liked his puppet version and didn't mind the baldness jokes, but he objected to a sketch where he ogled the breasts of his assistant Debbie McGee. After that moment he never watched the show again.

In the song I Cocked It Up Again!, Satan claims that he created Daniels, which God is relieved to hear, believing the stage magician to be one of his own failures.
