I used to get a kick out of Charlie Farquharson (AKA Don Harron).
In Canada, he's also known as a stand-alone comedy act (and can still be booked for functions). I used to have a couple of his albums as a kid.
Some of the regular Hee Haw bits actually make me laugh more now than they did at the time. "Plfllflflt, you was gone" has always been a favourite. The gossip intro was funny too (you'll never hear one of us repeating gossip, so you'd better be sure and listen close the first time). And I used to get a kick out of those short, single-joke sketches with the father and daughter, where the punchline always involved some abuse he's recently inflicted on her boyfriend.
Ozzymandias speaks: Don Harron was on the Man from U.N.C.L.E as a character named Kitt Kitridge. He was killed in an early episode but returned later.
I also have the pilot episode and you can see how they copied "Laugh-In", complete with the early music video stuff. I would love to have a CD of the Hager Twins doing "Gamblin Man."
Ozzymandias has spoken!!!
