I have a photograph, preserved your memories. They're all that's left you.

I haven't seen The Benny Hill Show since around 1980, but whenever I pull up an old pic of him he still makes me laugh.

I use to love Benny Hill, but my mother would go crazy if I watched it. She couldn't stand that show.

I LOVE Benny Hill! Can you believe that they used to show this on the local PBS station on Saturday nights?
So many good memories.

Tiff: I don't think my mom cared for it either, but she didn't mind if I watched it.

POM: I think I watched it on PBS too. They aired alot of English shows back then: Benny Hill, Dr. Who, and a couple of others.

Tom: I've always wondered if it would still be funny, but I bet it is.

I can still remember the theme music, with the tape sped up and him chasin' the ladies. My brother and I used to watch it on a black and white tv!

Noe: You're not old, just older. You've still got some good years ahead, I promise ;^)

Marco: Remember his as "super baby"? Or the short old guy he used to pat on the head???? Or when you'd hear women singing then he and 2 other guys would come out from behind the curtain like it was them singing. Too funny.

Momster: Wow I haven't watched a black-and-white tv in decades. I wonder if they still make them.

Marco said...

The old guy was the best. Always chuckled when he patted him on the head. You can always rely on the straight man to make it even funnier.

There was an interesting story about his about his will but I can't remember the details. It's 11:30 and I'm too tired to google it.

Thanks for the post.
