Kornfield memories

Hey blog world! There’s a very old TV show that’s been cancelled called “Hee Haw”. I absolutely love it! It’s a Country music variety show with sketches and music! It was super hillarious! There were 2 hosts of the show. One was named Roy Clark and the other was named Buck Owens. They’re both singers. Some of Roy’s songs are “Yesterday When I Was Young” and “Thank God And Greyhound” and some of Buck’s songs are “Act Naturally” and “Tiger By The Tail”. Not only did the show have hosts but there were loads of other cast members too who participated in the skits. There was Archie Campbell, Gordie Tapp, Grandpa Jones, Stringbean (his real name is David Akeman), Lulu Roman, Junior Samples, Jim and John Hager, Don Haron and Minnie Pearl. There are a few more cast members but I forget their names LOL! This show had a lot of recurring sketches like “Hey Grandpa What’s For Supper” in which while polishing an imaginary window Grandpa Jones would recite a poem about what’s for supper http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-a_SL0f8kQ. It doesn’t usually sound very appetizing though. Another recurring sketch was “The Culhanes” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fD-FwHRURaM&feature=related. “The Culhanes” revolves around the Culhane family who rarely ever leave their couch! Kinda like a younger version of Lunette and Molly I guess. There was also a sketch which I forget the name of where Archie Campbell would be a barber and tell stories to his clients http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KP2h1gJcsHU. Also there was “Pickin and Grinning” a segment of the show where Roy and Buck would play a song (Buck would play guitar and Roy would play the banjo) and tell jokes inbetween http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsQjtTUCAS0&feature=related. Not only did “Hee Haw” have sketches but it also had music. Loads of Country music artists performed on “Hee Haw” like Tanya Tucker, Merle Haggard, Lynn Anderson, Conway Twitty and sometimes some of the cast members even performed a song! I really miss this show and wish that it could come back on TV. “Hee Haw” was definately what I call good clean family fun because it was an appropriate show for all ages. No cursing or mature themes or anything! Who else agrees that “Hee Haw” should come back? Also what’s your favorite “Hee Haw” sketch? Tell me in the comments!
