Editorial Reviews

In the summer of 1969, HEE HAW moseyed into the CBS time slot occupied by The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. Conceived as a rural alternative to Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, the show ranked in the top 20 nationally when CBS pulled the plug in 1971. But co-hosts Buck Owens and Roy Clark, along with the whole Kornfield Kountry gang, sang and joked on in syndication. In 1978, they grinned at the critics in a two-hour 10th-Anniversary shindig, which was videotaped with an audience of invited guests and fans at the Grand Ole Opry House. Mixing nostalgia with new performances by country music's biggest stars, this special edition of HEE HAW never misses the funnybone.

Here's one for you trivia buffs - Did you know that KENNY ROGERS met his wife MARIANNE GORDON while visiting the HEE HAW set? Kenny elaborates and then does himself proud with The Gambler, one of the biggest hits of 1978. As for Gordon - she's part of the show's tribute to the easy-on-the-eyes <i<HEE HAW Girls. JUNIOR SAMPLES gets his due in a flashback sequence that shows his rare ability to mangle the English language when reading a cue card. Turning serious, HEE HAW pays its respects to former cast members who passed on. GRANDPA JONES honors his good friend and old fishin' buddy STRINGBEAN, while BUCK OWENS remembers his music partner and best friend of 16 years. DON RICH, with a medley of hits that made both of them famous.

A lot happened on the show in ten years - just check out the video montage of reliable HEE HAW guest artist TAMMY WYNETTE singing her way through a parade of striking outfits and memorable hairdos. Legendary guitar pickers MERLE TRAVIS and CHET ATKINS also drop by. You'll never guess who gives Chet a kiss when he finishes his number. Another segment covers the celebrities who joined ARCHIE CAMPBELL for the popular song routine Pfft! You Were Gone. Talk about delivery - JOHNNY CASH has a big surprise in store for Archie.

5.0 out of 5 stars hee...hee..hee...hee...hee...Hee-Haw!! March 5, 2009
Format:DVD
This DVD contains the Hee-Haw special from 1978 that wasn't a part of the weekly line-up. In the special we see a star-studded gala at the Grand Ole Opry house which features the show's cast, producer, and others involved with the show hosting a clip-fest look back of the program. Junior Samples is highlighted with a series of clips showing his legendary bloopers and mispronouncing of words...there's a segment spotlighting the "Pffft...You Was Gone" skit in addition to a montage of clips with Archie Campbell.

There are exclusive skits performed on stage and then the actors afterward break out of character and talk directly to the audience, introducing clips from previous episodes. Kenny Rogers appears on the special singing "The Gambler". There are plenty of other performances as well...Conway Twitty, one of my favorites, appears on here singing "Your Love Had Taken Me That High". Tennessee Ernie Ford and Merle Travis perform "Sixteen Tons". Tom T Hall performs "What Have You Got To Lose"; Barbara Mandrell sings "Sleeping Single in a Double Bed" plus she plays in a group number, "Rattler". Charley Pride sings "Burgers and Fries".

The special ran 96 minutes...well, commercial free. The show was 2 hours when you factor in the commercial breaks during the original 1978 airing. There was a second celebration, in 1988, when the show turned 20 years old but as of now that has yet to be released on DVD.

Among all of the clips and look-backs from the cast, there are a few serious memorial segments. Buck Owens salutes Don Rich while Grandpa Jones salutes Stringbean.

This is a must for all Hee-Haw fans.

Hee-Haw aired as a weekly show for 23 calendar years, 1969-1992, before going out of production in the summer of 1992.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hee Haw, 10th anniversary celebration March 9, 2010
By Sam D
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best Hew Haw episodes being sold today. It's a two hour, 10th anniversary special featuring an array of stars who have appeared on Hee Haw before, in addition to the regulars. Johnny Cash, Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, Tammy Wynette--this lady alone is worth the price. Believe me, you'll absolutely love her. Charley Pride outdid himself. His song, "Burgers and Fries," is one that will never get old. And nobody can sing it like Charley Pride. Please, do yourself a favor and buy this special edition of Hee Haw. It's worth 10 times the price. And thanks to Amazon for offering it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little misleading but a great DVD August 24, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD as a gift thinking it was the skits from the show. I guess I should have read a little more into it. The DVD is mainly song clips from the show and not the skits that I the gift recipient was hoping for. As I said though this was my fault because I just skimmed over the product and did not read into it. If you are one of those, like myself, who purchases based on what the package looks like, I would recommend looking into the details. Overall, for the price it is a great product and still really enjoyed watching the DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY ENTERTAINING . . . A LITTLE PRICEY October 22, 2006
By ABenz
Format:DVD
The previous reviewer gave this DVD only ONE star, but his complaint was that he "never received this product." How can you rate a program if you've never seen it?

He went on to say, "I have not ordered anything lately."--Obviously his problem is with Amazon--not Hee Haw.

If you enjoy Hee Haw, surely you will enjoy this DVD. However, it IS a bit pricey for a 96 minute show.
