Here are the funniest moments and naughtiest antics of British comic Benny Hill! Each volume features hilarious sketches, ridiculous slapstick, zany spoofs, and Benny's buxom and beautiful Hill's Angels.

Great DVD for Benny Hill fans

"I guess you could divide the world into those who love Benny Hill and those who can't stand him. There doesn't seem to be anybody who is neutral about the lad and his show. Well, I'm one of his fans and this 2-disc DVD is my idea of fun. Benny's TV show is represented here in 6 programs, 3 on each of the discs, each nearly an hour long. These programs are packed full of all the things that made The Benny Hill Show the classic comedy series: silly songs, quick joke sketches and cheeky gags, gorgeous gals in swimsuits and lingerie (aka Hills Angels), long wordless comedy routines with Benny and company, madcap chases to that geat saxophone, and the wonderfully uninhibited Benny Hill.
Benny is joined here by all his usual gang: Henry McGee, Jackie Clayton, Bob Todd and the beautiful and talented Hills Angels, particualarly Sue Upton, Erica Lynley and the delightful Louise English. Several of the programs also contain sketches featuring Benny teamed up with some adorable children. I think Benny does some of his best work with the kids. Look for the great sketch with Benny taking the kids along as he tries to do some fishing.
If you like Benny Hill and his TV show then I know you'll like this DVD."
Benny Hill compilation not too golden

"I want to start off this review by stating that I still laughed out loud during some moments during this 2 disc compilation and will probably revisit this set again.There were many classic sketches from Benny's 70's episodes which I thought should have been included, but it appears the sketches included on the set are from the mid to late 80's tv series. A compilation of sketches produced some years ago had more variety of Benny at his "classic" best.The documentary was most enjoyable but more from an american perspective. It gave an insight to the comic genius and was of a reasonable length showing clips from his early tv series.I am happy to announce the video transfer is of broadcast standard and that the mono soundtrack would not have benefited too much from a stereo soundtrack except for some musical sketches. Whatever reason earlier 70s sketches could not be included should not deter customers too much. Benny Hill is still a unique performer who deserves to have a place in your comedy library."
Not the real classics

"This DVD was kind of a letdown. They cover the Benny Hill period when he went kind of lazy on the comedy and basically depended on gimmicks such as "Hills Angels" and endless and witless musical numbers. These are the shows that were shown years ago on HBO "uncensored" and that were such a disappointment to fans.None of the classic, funny routines that made him famous in the U.S. are here. The quality of the DVD is great and it is nice to have some Benny Hill shows available( they aren't currently shown on any cable tv station), but this is not Benny at his best."
6 hour long shows from the later years.

For hardcore Benny Hill fans

"This DVD is certainly for fans of Benny Hill, and for those who don't get it, they may as well skip it. There are fewer skits than in Golden Classics(AISN:B0000714A9), but they are longer skits. A plus for this DVD is the inclusion of Hill's Little Angels skits. There is a photo gallery and biography information, and background information that will give one a bit of Information on the connection between 'Daphne' (from Fraiser) and Hills Angels. If a person is seeking to gather a collection of Benny Hill skits and gags, this DVD will fit the bill nicely. Menus are easy to use, and it is quick to find one's favorits skits."
