Both Jimmy and Brian made appearances in the children's television series ChuckleVision, alongside their younger brothers Paul and Barry. Jimmy is known as No Slacking due to the catchphrase.

For three months, all four brothers appeared together on the game show 3-2-1 with Ted Rogers on 17 April 1982 (Season 4, Episode 13), and also on New Faces. Afterwards, Jimmy and Brian returned to being the Patton Brothers.
