Thirty years ago, the ill-conceived comedy Heil Honey I'm Home! was cancelled by its UK broadcaster after only one episode.Laura Martin, BBC, 28th September 2020
Geoff Atkinson's comedy, starring Hitler as 1950s-style TV buffoon, was famously pulled after just one episode. Was it as bad as it sounds?Tom Fordy, The Telegraph, 30th July 2020
Here are 20 recent comedies that wouldn't have been green-lit today.Ed Power, The Telegraph, 17th October 2017
The surprise here isn't that Heil Honey was canned after one episode. The surprise is that this scarcely-believable and jaw-droppingly inappropriate comedy got as far as it did. Just to be clear, your worst suspicions about the title are correct. This is a breezy sitcom in which Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun find themselves living next door to a Jewish couple called the Goldensteins.
It aired on Sky's Galaxy channel in 1990, back when Murdoch's brains trust were willing to try anything once, in the hope that it might stick. This didn't stick. But it's still extraordinary viewing. From the gaudy, golden interior of the Goldensteins' house to the central plot (Neville Chamberlain is coming to visit and Hitler is keen to direct conversation away from his recent invasion of Czechoslovakia), everything about it is eye-poppingly wrong. Still, if you're going to make a show that gets cancelled after one episode, why not do it in style, eh?Phil Harrison, The Guardian, 29th June 2017
A man strides into his apartment and raises his right arm. "Heil, honey, I'm home!" he shouts at his wife, who's bustling around in the kitchen. The man is Adolf Hitler -- yep, that Adolf Hitler -- and this is the opening of Heil Honey, I'm Home!, a British sitcom that aired for one episode before being cancelled.Entertainment Weekly, 18th April 2017
