During the early 1980s, Hogan filmed a series of television ads promoting the Australian tourism industry, which aired in the United States.An advertisement with the phrase "shrimp on the barbie" which aired from 1984, was particularly successful.
These ads always ended with the catchphrase "Anyhow, have a Winfield".
Hogan followed this with his own comedy sketch program The Paul Hogan Show, which he produced and wrote, and in which he played characters with Cornell and Delvene Delaney.
The series, which ran for 60 episodes between 19, was popular in his native country and South Africa, and showcased his trademark lighthearted but laddish ocker humour.
The screenplay was nominated for an Academy Award, a BAFTA and a Saturn Award.
Along with Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn, Hogan co-hosted the 59th Academy Awards, also in 1987.
