Looked pretty much like Prince Edward Albert Victor.

Makes me wonder if the actor playing Chattsworth was picked for the part because of his resemblance to PAV (and so linking him to a high class lifestyle).
Chattsworth was brought in to replace Warren Beatty's character in the first season.

PAV, in Ripper terms, is kinda like Beatty, in Dobie Gillis terms. He gets some folks to tune in but is quickly replaced because he just doesn't fit and everyone tries to quickly forget he was ever there.

In music terms the same thing.
As for Mr. Krebs, all I can say is "WORK!!!"

Maynard eventually found his place in the world, as one of seven castaways on an uncharted isle.

Imagine to have lucked out on television with two famous roles in two successful sit-coms.

Chatsworth was played by Steve Francken, a good, if underrated comedian who had one marvelous comic movie part - he's the progressively drunken butler in the Peter Sellers/Blake Edwards non-"Pink Panther" related film, "The Party", where Sellers is an accident causing Indian actor who has just destroyed a film he was in, and has accidentally been invited to the home of the film's producer, where he also destroys the house during a dinner party. Francken, without intending to, helps him.

Actually Chatsworth is occasionally Dobie's rival for women or even class office in a school election. His mother in the series was the same actress who played the mother of the previous "rich boy" character, Warren Beatty as "Milton Armitage".

Yeah he did. Thinking about it only Lucille Ball and Bob Newhart mirrors this by both appearing in two successful shows ("I Love Lucy" and "Here's Lucy"/"The Lucile Ball Show"; "The Bob Newhart Show" and "Newhart"). There are probably others - Betty White certainly among them.
