Editorial Reviews

58 Full-Length Episodes. 585 classic sketches. On 18 DVDs.

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 bawdiness as he electrified audiences all over the world with The Benny Hill Show. This show-stopping collection on 18 DVDs captures every classic comedic moment from the Merry Master of Mirth in his hey day!

BENNY HILL: COMPLETE AND UNADULTERATED: THE COMPLEAT COLLECTION 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 to 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.

DVD Features: Bonus Documentary: The World s Favorite Clown; The Benny Hill Cheeky Challenge Trivia Quiz # 1-6; Benny Hill: Laughter and Controversy Episode of A&E s Award-Winning Series BIOGRAPHY; Eddie in August; I Was A Hill s Angel Featurette; Hill s Angels: Off the Record Featurette; Hill s Angels: In Conversation Featurette

This set contains all the specials Benny did for Thames between 1969 and 1989. It was from this material that the syndicated Benny Hill Shows which ran in the U.S. were compiled. If you purchase this set, you will have the complete, original & unedited source of all the Benny Hill shows - including lots of bits and pieces that never made it across the pond.
This "megaset" is also a terrific bargain. Buying the volumes individually would cost you over $100 more! I recommend it highly for Benny fans.

I have fond memories of this show from my childhood, so when I saw this box set I had to grab it. And - what can I say? The Benny Hill Show is funny stuff. His songs are clever, and who can forget the trademark chase sequences to the tune of "Yakety Sax"?

Some have said that Hill's humor is sexist - however, it is not demeaning to women at all. Nearly every time Benny himself, in the form of the "dirty old man," randy doctor, et cetera, is the butt of the joke.

The video quality is not the best, and in fact some episodes are in black and white. I'm sure this is because of the quality of the original masters. In any case, this set is quite watchable. Also, note that it includes the complete run of shows he did for Thames TV, which are the ones that were repackaged for overseas markets, but not the preceding BBC shows.

The Benny Hill collection is great but it is sometimes very difficult to understand waht is being said despite the fact that they are all speaking English. Keep in mind that this is not American English and many of the jokes may be missed completely if you do not listen closely. Subtitles would have helped greatly and I am very surprised that A&E did not include them in this collection. Other than that, this set is great!

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my stepfather. The first DVD was playing in the living room about 14 seconds after the wrapping was torn off. So many of the sketches are timeless and universally funny. We sat around for about an hour while laughing like crazy.

What's great about the Benny Hill DVD set is that it's all about remembering and appreciating the comedy sketches of legend. Leave any concerns of 1080p and 7.1 surround sound at the door and just enjoy the show.

Some other notes:
There seem to be two sets of Benny Hill DVD's on Amazon. This is the one that hasn't been sterilized to some ridiculous post Janet Jackson Superbowl level of boring.

There are a couple sketches that will not make any sense because they're making jokes about stuff specific to English pop-culture of the time. Thankfully the DVD is sectioned off per skit so you can just skip it.

The set when you buy all the boxes is missing the Australian episode which is rather famous. Frankly, the box set is as close as you are going to get to a complete set and would deserve ***** stars but the packaging and title is clearly misleading.

Currently, there are no complete sets. The Australian episode is not available in this set (or any other that I know of).

Benny is one of the greatest comedians. No product quality issues to report. The discs are the same as the individual sets. The biography episode is a plus. I own the 2007 set. The new one appears to be the same but in different packaging. Contains the full 20-year Thames span. A must have for Benny fans.

As comics come, Benny was pure, simple, and damn funny. I miss him, but this set will fill the gap. He was the most genuine comic of his time. And you can tell from watching this complete set that he had a beautiful sense of humor about his life, and the world around him.

Thanks Benny, we'll keep laughing!

Benny Hill was definitely the King of British Comedy of his time and without question, must have inspired the Monty Python group. His self-deprecating and impish style can be compared to no one else. Some people might consider him sexist, but he was actually pointing fun at the male of the species who first goes after the woman, but ends up being very unhappily chased by her, instead. The films present a wonderful time trip to an era of wide lapels, wide ties, bell bottom trousers, short mini skirts and long boots on a bevy of lovely young ladies. A very enjoyable burlesque romp through the past! My wife and I both love it!
