Storyline

This timeless modern slapstick-format doesn't really have a plot, but is an irresistible rapid succession of independent short, comical scenes, mostly without any text, often using artificial speed enhancing in the countless chases, which have little in common except the eponymous title-hero himself, who like several frequently recurring sidekicks (especially the old bald guy, who gets countless knocks all over the place) turns up in all sort of places and is frequently tempted by too blond, young and long-legged to be true Benny Hill-girls, getting in - but mostly also out of all kinds of trouble with jealous husbands, police etcetera.

The Benny Hill Show - December 1962 to January 1963
28 August 2018 | by andy-20656-62037See all my reviews

Even though I was born in 1951, I do not remember seeing a TV show until 1960, when my mother and father and I returned from living abroad for three years, and we did not start renting a television set until December 1962 - and even then, it was only for a few months, over the Christmas period.

The rest of the time, I sometimes was able to watch shows at friend's houses, after playing together.

In those days, a lot of parents still considered the television to be a bit of nuisance and had a detrimental effect on social and family life.

However, I do remember watching the Benny Hill Show at 10 minutes to 9 on a Friday night in December 1962 and January 1963.

At this point, I would like to invite you to read my reviews on two episodes that I remember watching. They are: "The Time Bicycle" and "The Shooting of Willie the Kid".

I hope this might be useful to prospective comedy producers. Anyone who manages to get a copy of these two shows, should be aware of "spoilers". If copies of this wonderful show are still available would love to watch them again.

Also, if any other users of IDMB remember the plots to some of these shows, I would love to read their reviews.
