More about Benny Hill: The Complete Megaset: The Thames Years 1969-1989
The undisputed “Funniest Man on Television” Benny Hill pioneered a naughty new direction for the sketch-comedy variety show and pushed TV broadcasting to new levels of rowdiness as he electrified audiences all over the world with The Benny Hill Show. This re-packaged, specially-priced show-stopping collection on 18 DVDs captures every classic comedic moment from the Merry Master of Mirth in his heyday.
Benny Hill: The Complete Megaset: The Thames Years 1969-1989 contains Benny’s raucous 20-year reign over television’s sketch variety genre, from the naughty early years to the debut of the nubile Hill’s Angels, through the final episodes. Witness the birth of crazy caricatures like Fred Scuttle, Chow Mein, and Pierre de Terre. Laugh out loud as Benny and his bevy of buxom babes flaunt their racy rowdiness and tongue-in-cheek satire in characteristically outrageous sketches like “The Little Dimpton Street Party” and “The Crook Report.” These 58 vintage episodes originally aired from 1969 to 1989, contain nearly 600 memorable sketches and deliver a comedy high kick that is quintessentially Benny.
Never aired in the U.S. in full-length form, this complete collection of the Thames episodes of The Benny Hill Show presents a rare opportunity to view every saucy, unforgettable moment from one of the most uproarious and celebrated programs in television history.
