"Stavros" was a a strip that ran in The Topper starring a boy who worked at the Grand Hotel. The strip appears to have been influenced heavily by Fawlty Towers: Stavros, with his accident-prone nature and pidgin Engish ("Wotta lotta dishes I gotta carry. I no can see to good, neithers! YOOPSADEARIE! Stavros fall! No see thing I falls over, innit!"), came across as a kind of junior Manuel, while his boss somewhat resembled John Cleese.
