Shows like The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres, and Mayberry RFD still garnered good ratings, but their audiences were considered too rural, too poor, and too old. Trying to attract better demographics, the network instead decided to concentrate on more sophisticated shows like All in the Family and The Mary Tyler Moore Show. One of CBS' countrified hits refused to die, though. When Hee Haw, a cornpone take on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In was cancelled, it ranked sixteenth in the Nielsen ratings. With the show still immensely popular, its producers decided to make the risky jump to first-run syndication. As it turns out, it wasn't so risky - the series ran for another twenty-two years.Hosted by Roy Clark and Buck Owens, Hee Haw is a country music hoedown mixed with sketches, jokes, and skits performed by a crack team of comedic performers, including Archie Campbell, "Grandpa" Jones, Junior Samples, Lulu Roman, Stringbean, Gordie Tapp, George "Goober" Lindsey, and Roni Stoneman. The jokes are often so bad that they wouldn't even be seen printed on any self-respecting Popsicle stick. The series' rep company may have changed over the years, but its hillbilly humor pretty much remained the same. Recurring sketches include a Mark Twain-esque gentleman who delivers front-porch philosophy before getting beaned over the head by a rubber chicken; groan-inducing jokes told in a cornfield ("If you want to make antifreeze, hide her woolen underwear"); and "The Culhanes," a soap opera parody that features a listless family that can barely gather the energy to discuss the terrible things happening around them.I'd rather laze atop a sack of cotton with a jug of moonshine on one side of me and Kingfish the Wonder Dog on the other. That wayI can better concentrate on Hee Haw's biggest strength: country music. This set contains a number of great musical performances, even if some of them are accompanied by can-can dancing, bikini-clad animated pigs. Many of these country greats have moved on to that Grand Ole Opry house in the sky, making this set an important historical collection for country fans.Buck Owens and Roy Clark are the show's musical cornerstones. Owens, with his iconic red, white, and blue guitar, was a forefather of country's "Bakersfield Sound," a style of country music developed by Dust Bowl migrants in the area around Bakersfield, CA. Clark, who is equally adept on the banjo, guitar, and mandolin, first appeared at the Grand Ole Opry at the age of seventeen. In each episode, both are given ample opportunity to show off their talents. Several of the series' other cutups had musical roots. Grandpa Jones was an accomplished banjo player. Stringbean (aka David Akeman) played banjo for Bill Monroe. Roni Stoneman (who often appears with her teeth blackened and her hair in plaits) had her first professional singing gig at age ten. Twins Jim and John Hager were discovered by Buck Owens when they were featured performers at Disneyland. The Hagers - who perform in almost every episode included here - are a pleasing mix of folk, country, and pop.It's the guest stars, however, who really shine. How can you top Ray Charles performing "Don't Change on Me"? Perhaps with a duet between Charles and Buck Owens on "Crying Time." Jerry Lee Lewis scorches through "Whole Lot of Shakin' Goin' On" and "What's Made Milwaukee Famous (Made a Loser Out of Me)." The legendary Loretta Lynn makes several appearances, performing such hits as "Hey Loretta," "Fist City," and "Dear Uncle Sam." She also duets with Conway Twitty on "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man." Twitty performs several of his biggest hits, including "It's Only Make Believe," "You've Never Been This Far Before," and "I Love You More Today." Country music fans will be over the moon with numbers by Hank Williams, Jr., Dottie West, Merle Haggard, Lynn Anderson, Waylon Jennings, Tanya Tucker, and Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.* * * * * * *Want to know which performers and songs are on which discs?
