The Benny Hill Annuals - 1980-89
Known throughout the world for his combination of high-speed farce, risqué jokes and gorgeous ladies, it is these shows that turned him into a global household name. This set features some of Benny's most famous characters, including the unforgettable Fred Scuttle - who gets his very own TV Channel, 'Scuttlevision' - and Mr. Chow Mein, whose varied roles include butler and choreographer of the Chinese Opera Company. You can also experience investigative journalism at its best with 'The Crook Report', enjoy Benny's innovative production of Carmen and a very strange version of the Monte Carlo Show, and meet an entire Dynasty of characters oddly resembling The Lad Himself!
With every show a critically acclaimed ratings topper it's no surprise that The Benny Hill Show was one of the most successful programmes ever screened on British television. So join Benny, the ladies and his trio of hopeless helpers (including Henry McGee, Bob Todd and Jackie Wright) in an entire decade's worth of mirth from the 1980s. More than 19 hours of comedy are spread over 9 discs in this box set.
