Hee Haw

Friday, July 05, 2019

Hee Haw, 1969-71, in syndication from 71-93
This was a “down-home” variety show with lots of country singers, corn pone humor, the Hee Haw Honeys (scantily clad young women, at least less covered than the men) and “shout outs” to small rural towns, etc. Hee Haw had an audience not only in rural settings, but also big urban areas (LA, NYC, Boston & more)
