    I used to love watching this show as a child with my Dad.

    Aw, I liked him (them) too. He sure was young. I thought he'd be older - like in his 80's.

    The picture on the link you provided is dated 2007....they both look so much younger than men in their 60's.
    Hee Haw always makes me think of my Grandma. (miss her so much)
    Yeah, I admit, I enjoyed the show. ....."gloom despair and agony on me"......."Hey, Grandpa, what's for supper?"......Grandpa Jones...String Bean....etc.

    Talisman, my parents used to watch it and I pretended I hated it.

    Gloom despair and agony on me,
    Deep dark depression,
    Excessive misery.
    If it weren't for bad luck
    I'd have no luck at all
    Gloom, despair and agony on me.

    Little did I know that would be my theme song.

    RIP

    My parents would always sing this song to me whenever I would whine about something. It always made me mad.

    We watched a lot of Hee Haw. SALUTE!

    I loved Hee Haw when I was kid. I had a major crush on the Hagar twins! They were soooo cute.
