"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."
It's the Benny Hill show!

"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."
God! I Miss Benny!

"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!"
This set is NOT complete as advertised.

"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)."
