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!!!

Harron made the rounds of a few classic shows from the 50s to the 70s. I'm actually kind of surprised he didn't become more famous outside of Canada, like some other alumni of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Here he is doing Taming of the Shrew with Shatner in 1954.

Harron's still performing and making the odd TV appearance, but at 84 years old, the last thing I saw him in was a commercial for funeral insurance.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
