...sort of a Mickey Rooney with just enough Roddy McDowell to hold me down

Hey Bensters,

O.K., I need help hear (pun). For the Benny show 47-11-0N, at about 11.5 minutes into it, Phil says "Think it over dad... {other text] I'm alive... I'm sharp... I'm sort of a Mickey Rooney with just enough Roddy McDowell to hold me down." It gets a BIG laugh, but, other than the two styles of vocal delivery being different (a midwestern American dialect and [I'm guessing] West London British), I don't quite get the bang of the joke. Any ideas?

Regs.,

Ted
