Alf Garnett was a famous Cockney character in the British sitcoms Till Death Do Us Part, and In Sickness and In Health, played by Warren Mitchell.
Alf Garnett was a misanthropic, small-time racist, thwarted by the world changing around him.
Because he was completely bald, it's no wonder that his name became rhyming slang for hair.
