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.

Chicken Chow Mein Meets Mr. Red Afro...
5 March 2008 | by newkflSee all my reviews

I was literally in tears when I watched Benny Hill: The Naughty Early Years: Complete and Unadulterated. Benny Hill had to be one of the pioneers when it came to male comedy. Hill understood how to make an audience laugh and mixed it with his comic genius to produce great episodes for audiences throughout the world. When I saw the episode with Benny Hill playing a gentleman from Asia and then twisting his words to create new ones, I was in stitches. I had to skip the DVD back a few times to make sure that I was getting his punchline. It was some damn good work. There was another episode where Benny Hill was dressed up with the same shirt and tie, but I was laughing at the red afro. I had never seen anything like it before and I had to laugh at it. Only Benny Hill could have pulled off a caper like it. These episodes are a must see for any Benny Hill fan. On a final note: wear a red afro when ordering chicken chow Meir.
