Williams worked in television and British films, notably the Carry On series (1958–1978) with its British double entendre-laced humour, which were highly successful but for which he, along with the rest of the cast, was poorly paid.
In his diaries Williams claims he earned more in a British Gas commercial than the entire Carry On series — although that might be true only if one adds the fee he earned from the highly popular spin-off children's cartoon series Willo the Wisp (taken up by the BBC rather than the commercial TV network).
In his diaries he was often highly critical of the Carry On films, both of his own performances and those of his fellow actors, and gave the impression that the films were beneath his talent. This was the case with many of the films, television programmes, stage plays and radio shows he appeared in, and he was quick to find fault with his own work. Despite this private criticism, he still appeared in more of the Carry On films than any of his fellow actors, and spoke fondly of them in his interviews.
Peter Rogers, producer of the series, maintained a good relationship with Williams. He recollected, "...Kenneth was worth taking care of, because while he cost very little — £5,000 a film — he made a very great deal of money for the franchise.
