The Cuckoo Waltz was a British television sitcom made by Granada Television for the ITV network between 1975 and 1980.

The series which was set in Manchester, written by Geoffrey Lancashire, produced and directed by Bill Gilmour, dealt with the comic complications that ensue when impoverished newlyweds Chris and Fliss Hawthorne (David Roper and Diane Keen) take in a lodger, Gavin Rumsey (Lewis Collins), to ease their financial problems. Collins left after 3 series and was replaced by Ian Saynor as Adrian Lockett.

The series was re-screened by now defunct Satellite TV channel, Granada Plus, in the late 1990's.
