Storyline

A sketch-comedy series in which Hill would often play multiple characters and satirize popular British and American performers and stars. Common themes in the show were the husband-beating wife, buxom women, and silent, high-speed chase scenes between Hill and the other characters. Written by Gregg Long <diggerblue@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Though the show went through seven producer/directors over its 20-year run (six in the first nine years alone), it has been widely acknowledged that Benny Hill, in addition to being the star and writer, acted as an unofficial director of the program, although he was never credited as such.

Where was i all these years?
22 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

Oh my god! what was i living under!!? During the Chinese New Year reunion in my granny's home and found my uncle and my cousins glued to the TV... so after greeting everyone i decided to go see for myself what was it they were watching... i found the DVD cover "The Naughty Early Years BENNY HILL, The Complete First Season" oh, sounds... naughty... but the end result, it wasn't naughty at all!!! i thought it was tame and i loved that bumbling comedian i saw! Benny hill is Genius and im proud to announce him my FAVE comedian from now on!!! so i borrowed the DVD and i still watch it till today... never getting tired of his silly and hilarious parodies, his chase, Fred Scuttle, that silly smirk and all his expressions, everything!!! so i did my research and what i read broke my heart into pieces... benny hill is dead? how can it be? a heart attack? alone, in his apartment? but what hurt me the most was people even attempted to dig up his coffin just for gold! and if i was one of the girls he proposed to, i would have said yes!!! thats how much i adore him!!! the poor comic genius definitely didn't deserve all that toxic comments people made on his show coz they would be hypocrites to say his show was politically incorrect... and most definitely didn't deserve an ending like that... but he can rest easy coz he has a fan in me and ill bring more for him!!! Rest in peace, Alfie
