A biography of Ian Dury, who was stricken with polio at a young age and defied expectations by becoming one of the founders of the punk-rock scene in Britain in the 1970s.
Sir Peter Blake designed the type used in the title sequence and the first part of the end credits. Blake, who designed the cover of "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and other albums, was Ian Dury's tutor at the Royal College of Art in the 60s. He also designed the cover for Ian Dury tribute album, "Brand New Boots and Panties".

When Baxter discards the Stretch Hulk birthday present from his Dad in the bin, you can clearly see that it is a standard action figure, and not a 'stretch' toy.
There are photos of the real Ian Dury - including ones of him as a child with his father and of the cover of 'New Boots and Panties - at the end of the film just prior to the credits.
