My Thoughts: I vaguely remember Hee Haw reruns watched at my Nana's house when I was small. I don't remember much about the show itself but what I do remember is the laughing from Nana and my aunts. Those are happy memories for sure and watching these episodes now I know what they were giggling about. Hee Haw is fun and silly and packed with great music. Even though country music isn't my favorite style of music I still appreciate great musicians and Hee Haw managed to get them all onscreen at one time or another.
Hee-Haw is a fun and timeless show that is meant to be watched again and again. If you have a music fan in your life this would be a perfect gift. You can pick up your copy on Amazon HERE.
