Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Hee Haw salutes Irasburg VT, population 775, and Hamden CT (Ernest Borgnine's hometown) population 50900.

    • Hey Grandpa, What's for Supper? Here's what's on the menu tonight:
      Well, they didn't cut me no wood and the stove's cold as ice, and we'll eat bologna sandwiches and left-over rice. They didn't bring ice, so the milk is not cold, and I guess that'll teach ya to do as you're told.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (The Gossip Girls singing)
      Marianne: Well, I hear Aunt Minnie's had another birthday.
      Barbi: When it comes to staying young, that gal's the bragginist.
      Marianne: But she's honest enough to admit she's pushing 40.
      Barbi: Honey, she ain't pushing 40, she's a draggin' it.

    • (At the joke fence):
      Misty: Did you hear the one about the spiritualist that wasn't good or bad?

      Crowd: No, What happened?
      Misty: He was just medium.

    • "Gloom, Despair and Agony on Me" (w/Ernest Borgnine)
      Grandpa: If anybody's got bad luck, I guess Ern must.
      Archie: Why, his kind of luck'd make a school teacher cuss.
      Roy: He finally reached his goal, and found a cure for the common cold.
      Ernest: And now they've discovered that colds are good for us.

    • (During "Pfft You Was Gone", Archie sings (with Ernest Borgnine) the following):
      Her teeth I presume, were false and not pearly,
      she was a bleached blonde, who never dressed well.
      Her hair was in strings, and surely not curly,
      but Ernie Borgnine, he thought she was swell.

    • (The Naggers, as usual, in their home arguing)
      Ida Lee: And another thing, you hydromatic hillbilly, you.
      LaVerne: Hey woman, what do you mean calling me hydromatic?
      Ida Lee: Cause you're shiftless, that's what.
      LaVerne: Now you have done it. You've messed up your next birthday. If you wanted to get a pet owl, and you're not gonna get it.
      Ida Lee: Well, I ain't sewing up any more of your old socks, then. Cause if you don't give a hoot, I don't give a darn.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Cast changes for the first episode of the new season include the departure of Stringbean (due to his tragic death), and the addition of banjo player Buck Trent and Kenny Price (who starts off uncredited). Gailard Sartain officially joins the cast (he's been uncredited for the previous 2 seasons), and the return of Lulu Roman (who remains uncredited). Buckaroo member Don Rich was killed over the summer in a motorcycle accident, but the 1st half of the season was already taped, so he'll still appear for 13 episodes.

    • Lots of new sketches debut with the new season, including "Advice to the Lovelorn", with Lisa Todd giving out love advice, "Randolph Roy Rides Again", set in an old-time saloon, "The Gossip Girls", with 4 of the girls singing gossip around a laundry washtub, "Goober's Service Station", "Kornfield Korners Depot" with Kenny Price as a ticket agent, Lulu Roman serving up bad food with Gailard Sartain as Orville the cook in "Lulu's Truckstop", and Gordie Tapp as "Senator Willie Ackerman", talking to his constituents at the Kornfield Korners depot.
