Ok, for you "youngsters" that may be reading this....there WAS a time when we didn't have 5 zillion channels to choose from on television! I remember a time when there were just THREE. Well if the antenna was pointing in the right direction and it was a clear day we COULD get FOUR, the Houston station!!! This was also a time families ACTUALLY would gather and spend quality time together watching TV. As shocking at that sounds, WE LIKED IT. lol. Yes, our choices in programming were very limited BUT I long for those days when we would sit in Maw Maw and Paw Paw Shutters living room on Saturday evening and tune it to the quirky variety show that was only on the air for 3 years but left a indelible mark in television running in sydication for close to 20 years. It was a treat and something we looked forward to and it was always a bonus when our favorite country singers appeared on it. So, when I caught wind that HEE HAW was going to Broadway, all those wonderful memories came rushing back!!! Yes, Kornfield Kounty is getting a musical makeover and moving to NYC!!! With that being said, WHO COULD POSSIBLY fill the shoes of our beloved characters??? Grandpa Jones, Lulu, Junior Samples and what about the staples Roy Clark, Buck Owens, Minnie Pearl??? *GASP* I am doubtful that this tv gem can be transformed PROPERLY into a musical BUT just the thought of Hee Haw again did bring a smile to my face for the moment!!!
Below I found a clip with of one of the more popular skits on the show with Archie Campbell and L@@K who is with him!!! WOW!!!!
