I know, I know, it's Hee-Haw but I grew up on this stuff. Didn't appreciate it at all then, but now that I look back it was such a well done show.

I guess I'm getting old but this is just good, old-fashioned comedy at its best. Call me an old codger if you will. Be sure and watch the whole thing; the line-up of stars (many who are now gone) is quite impressive.

Enjoy everyone. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thanks for the memories!

I remember as a young girl my grandpa would watch it every night and then grandma would watch Lawrence Welk. One of my fondest memories of my grandpa would be when he would ask me if I had been drinking muddy water. And I said no, why? And he said cause I can't see through you, lol

I always would stand in front of the tv and he couldn't see HeeHaw, lol

Good memories

I remember watching Red Skelton with my dad when I was about 3 years old. Yeah, brings back memories.

Thats funny. I haven't heard that one. I never watched Hee Haw. After church on Sunday night, it seems like we always watched Bonanza.

I loved watching Hee Haw as a child and The Red Skelton Show as well. I remember that I couldn't wait until the next show the following week .
I always thought the girls in Hee Haw (in short shorts) were real hot. Ok, I was just a boy who's glands were getting in the way like thousands of others my age, so shoot me .

And my favorite Red Skelton characters were Freddie the Freeloader and Clem the Cadidlehopper.

Now there is a flood of childhood memories.

And if we would get in our Dad's way while watching iether show he would tell us, (move! you're not made of glass, so I can't see through your a$$). Or, as our Mom would say, (You'd make a better door than you'd make a window, please move).

Red Skelton was one of the best showmen there ever was. He is sorely missed these days. Has anyone ever heard the rendition he did of The Pledge of Allegiance? See the link below...

Thanks for the memories, I love Red Skelton and Roy Clark was my favorite on Hee Haw. You Tube is a good thing, I love the old favorites I can find there.

My favorite part of Hee Haw was when the girls were together washing clothes, and they would sing a little song that ended "You'll never hear any of us repeating gossip, so you'd better be sure and listen close the first time" Hee hee

We used to watch Hee Haw when I was a kid. I remember lying on the floor at our neighbors house with our feet propped up on the wood surround of the fireplace & watching the animated pigs doing the can-can across the bottom of the TV screen. Now that was high-tec back then!

Occasionally if my Dad wasn't home, my Mother would switch it to Lawrence Welk . She loved big band music.

We all loved Red Skelton in our house. I can still see the twinkle in his eye...

Those are nice memories. Most of the time we watched these shows as a family. We weren't split up in to different parts of the house doing different things.
