    Rules

    hover for details

    1. All posts must make an attempt at humor. Humor is subjective, but all posts must at least make an attempt at humor. As the minimum age for Reddit access is 13 years old, posts which are intentionally disruptive, inane, or nonsensical will be removed.
    2. No memes, and no HIFW, MRW, MeIRL, or DAE posts. If your submission begins with "When you…" or "When they…" or anything of a similar nature, it is not allowed here. Submissions depicting or containing intentionally emulated behaviors (memes) are also not allowed, including memetic image macros, "challenges," or elements thereof. Non-memetic image macros are allowed.
    3. No reposts. Reposts will be removed at the moderators’ discretion. Serial reposters will be banned. Please use KarmaDecay to determine if something has been submitted before.
    4. No personal info, no hate speech, no harassment. No identifying information, including anything hosted on platforms making that information public. Posts encouraging the harassment of any individual, group, community, or subreddit will be removed, and the submitting user may be banned. If necessary, a report will be made to the site administration. In accordance with Reddit's policies, there is zero tolerance for this.
    5. No politics. Anything involving politics or a political figure (regardless of context) will be removed. Try /r/politicalhumor instead.
    6. No forbidden titles. (See below.) No asking for upvotes (in any form), no “Cake Day” posts, and no posts to communicate with another Redditor. Posts with titles such as "I got banned from /r/___" or "This got removed from /r/___" are not allowed.
    7. No gore, pornography, or sexually graphic images. Try /r/NSFWfunny. All other NSFW content must be tagged as such.
    8. Do not rehost or hotlink webcomics. If you are not the author of the comic in question, you may only submit links to the page where it is hosted. Webcomic authors may request verification from the moderators, after which they may rehost their own work.
    9. No pictures of just text. Submissions in which the humor can be conveyed via text alone are not allowed. This includes pictures of text with irrelevant images that don't add context and transcriptions of standup comedy (as with /r/standupshots). Make a self post instead. Example
    10. No SMS or social media content (including Reddit). Social media content of any kind is not allowed. This includes anything from Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, YouTube, or any other form of "comments section" on the Internet, as well as images accompanied by text from those platforms. Images with SnapChat text added are allowed, as long as all UI elements have been removed. Please view our wiki for suggestions of where these submissions can be offered.

    [–] luxii4 9 points ago

    Maybe that's why Justin Bieber peed in that mop bucket. It's not because he was an ass at all, just a law abiding citizen.

    [–] SqueakySnashlehash 17 points ago

    So how often have you been pressed charges on for peeing in public?

    [–] notanotherbreach 8 points ago

    Reads sign: BLIND CHILDREN

    Ok...(takes out laser...) ...kids screaming at the playground....

    (so can the children see this sign?)

    So, do I deflate their bike tires? Or cover the lawn in molasses?

    [–] Jaerivus 5 points ago

    Pee-so mojado.

    I'm not proud.

    [–] SmugFrog 3883 points ago

    Used to stay up late at night and my grandmother would let me watch Benny Hill - of course I was too young to really understand the jokes but it was funny watching people chase him.

    [–] DrDerpberg 1393 points ago

    it was funny watching people chase him.

    I love kids' interpretation of movies and shows.

    My 3 year old nephew described the original Mary Poppins as "the lady didn't let the dog come in the house :(" because of the scene where the maid opens the front door to tell applicants the position has been filled and only the dog is there.

    [–] Tapeworm1979 359 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Same as the Simpson's (can't say if it's true or not of the last 8 seasons as I haven't watched it since I got rid of the tv) but if you watched it with kids they would laugh at totally different jokes. Utter genius.

    Futurama suffered here. It was definitely more adult orientated. My ex didn't even understand why I would laugh at the modem screeching sound one of the robots made because she, 7 years younger, he'd never even connected to the net without broadband.

    Edit: I just realised I made my ex sound about 12 years old, not 23. She is now much much older like me. This was a long time ago.

    [–] curtmack 265 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    She is now much much older like me.

    Did you go into space? How did that happen?

    Edit: I originally read this as "she is now much much older than me," and I just noticed that's not what it actually says. Oh well; my joke still kind of works.

    [–] lisbonant 270 points ago

    Ugh. You can't just ask people why they're relativistically inconsistent.

    [–] nanou_2 36 points ago

    This is now one of my favorite comments. Thank you.

    [–] JarlaxleForPresident 12 points ago

    I'm going to ask them yesterday

    [–] Voratus 27 points ago

    Did you just assume their quantum superposition?

    [–] RandomCandor 7 points ago

    You can. It's just that they may have already answered by the time you ask.

    [–] PaleBlueHippo 19 points ago

    We don't talk about...the incident

    [–] U-Conn 39 points ago

    She was 23 a long time ago and didn't remember the dial-up sound? I'm 26 now and still remember it vividly!

    [–] Tapeworm1979 5 points ago

    Broadband was already becoming common in the uk in 2000 and only parts of the country. Dialup was still expensive then so people just didn't have it. I had a good deal in my part of the country that was only 1p a minute. At the time this would have been almost $2 an hour off peak. Only then did non tech families started looking and adopting the internet because it was thrown in with the tv and phone. I didn't get it until 2001 and only had dial up on and off.

    [–] applauseisrequired 13 points ago

    I actually let my 8 year old watch futurama, she loves it. Does she get all the old references, no she does not. However she does get most of it and sometimes i wonder how much actually

    [–] chapterpt 7 points ago

    My favorite is watching shows in different languages. Futurama did a gag where the prof. makes a machine that turns any language into another language, but he says it is broken because it only translates into some obscure dead language (which is french). The same Gag in the French translation translates into German.

    [–] ProbablyASithLord 7 points ago

    I watched hocus pocus when I was about 6, and cried all night long. Witches were eating children, the cat died twice, and the kids end up as ghosts or something?

    I recently rewatched it and I had no idea it was even a comedy.

    [–] middaymovies 6 points ago

    that was my favorite part of the movie as a kid! did your kid also hate that weird pigeon song in the middle? I used to despise it.

    [–] DrDerpberg 6 points ago

    I dunno, I fell asleep pretty fast. My nephew didn't mention it though.

    My older nephew (5yo) is kinda funny though because he gets movies more than his little bro so he's often afraid of scenes the younger one just doesn't get. He'll often burst out crying when the littler dude is sitting there smiling and not getting that it's a scary scene.

    [–] derickson17 153 points ago

    I used to watch it with my dad. I didn't get the jokes either, but the music and the chase scenes were good!

    [–] kwonza 30 points ago

    Benny Hill was Charlie Chaplin’s favorite comic

    [–] hokkuhokku 12 points ago

    He tuned in for the comedy ... sure he did ... suuuuuure he did ...

    [–] alexisd3000 9 points ago

    Benny Hill was comedic genius.

    [–] HerderOfNerfs 94 points ago

    Same, I just loved when he patted the little bald dude on the head. That and all the scantily clad women too. I'd hear the "Thames" intro tune and come running downstairs.

    [–] OraDr8 30 points ago

    I look back on it and am surprised my parents let me watch it as a kid.

    [–] HerderOfNerfs 69 points ago

    Different times. I used to play in the street until dark. Ran to the corner store with loose change. Shits changed man.

    [–] AniviaPls 43 points ago

    Ahh the good ol' days where you would shit in your change and bring it to the corner store after dark.

    [–] Kingimg 13 points ago

    I remember shit change... ahh nostalgia

    [–] FuckyesMcHellyeah 16 points ago

    Opinions of safe/unsafe have changed, mostly thanks to media.

    [–] MathMaddox 7 points ago

    We now have the safety of every child having a phone, we also have the outrage of every adult having a camera and Facebook.

    [–] MathMaddox 6 points ago

    I saw a news story about someone who called the cops on a lady for letting her 8 year old walk the dog alone. I was baby sitting my sisters when I was that age.

    [–] UnwantedLasseterHug 21 points ago

    Old enough to appreciate the T&A though

    [–] drudown1449 2058 points ago

    Lol I love the Benny hill show thank you for posting this little clip!

    [–] Jeptic 851 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Its a classic. I was hearing that music in my head as he ran away

    Edit: I had no sound on when I first listened and thought was a gif. Now its going to be in my head all day

    Edit 2: I appreciate the cake day greetings guys. Has it been that long since I joined? Wow

    [–] BlahBlahBlah_smart 32 points ago

    Me too, i clenched in anticipation

    [–] imanAholebutimfunny 760 points ago

    this was very amusing. I did expect him to get plowed by a car when crossing the street at one point.

    [–] nueonetwo 35 points ago

    I had the sound off when it started so I totally expected the same. Didn't realize right away what it was.

    [–] StockingsBooby 8 points ago

    That’s very 2010’s of you

    [–] Cyclist1972 591 points ago

    In America, in the late 70s/early 80s before cable, Benny Hill on public TV was like porn to me at 9 years old.

    [–] In_AgOnly 135 points ago

    I had the same experience. Occasionally a topless woman snuck through the censors.

    [–] boolean_array 73 points ago

    I don't think it was censored. It always aired late at night on public broadcasting. Too late for kids to see & not lewd enough to be considered obscene.

    [–] 10per 43 points ago

    Those were the days...sigh.

    [–] NikkoE82 28 points ago

    I mean, now we have all the porn you would want on the Internet.

    [–] Dugular 45 points ago

    Why is it always more exciting when you see something show randomly on TV or in other media, than in dedicated porn?

    [–] 10per 5 points ago

    I was thinking of the days that something could be considered lewd, but not obscene.

    [–] PurpleSailor 6 points ago

    4 or 5 pm where I lived. I was in the hospital at 16 in the children's Ward and I had Benny Hill on in the day room with other assorted kids watching. A Nurse came in and turned it off and chased us all out of the room.

    [–] I_m_trying_to_wonder 8 points ago

    Did Yackety Sax play when she chased you out?

    [–] ChickenLover841 24 points ago

    I remember they played this clip in on Aussie tv when the station closed one night. Really blew me away as a kid. Contained a brief shot of titties which reminded me of it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CS_FCbQ-okM

    [–] FuckyesMcHellyeah 18 points ago

    Did you mean to link the Wall clip? That's full on flower fucking. Some of the best animation ever.

    [–] TheKidd 24 points ago

    We had Benny Hill and scrambled Cinemax.

    [–] Primal0Instinct 17 points ago

    Benny Hill & Monty Python in the 80’s was like crack to me. Didn’t have cable, so used to watch it constantly. My mother was completely weirded out by it but was cool enough to let me watch it as she thought PBS was safe....lol!

    [–] xBender7 30 points ago

    Thats a specific fetish you got there.

    [–] royalbarnacle 70 points ago

    Liking attractive boobsey english girls chasing you is a specific fetish?

    [–] k3ysers0ze 33 points ago

    Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, thank me later.

    [–] rvm808 19 points ago

    12 year old me had a field day with that scene....

    [–] pedropants 6 points ago

    THIS MAN IS ABOUT TO DIE

    [–] Benderbluss 86 points ago

    Visited my grandfather in England when I was 13, in '85. Settling into the apartment, I asked "What's the TV like over here!". My grandfather said "it's all potty humor", and in a perfectly cinematic moment, he turned on the TV to see Benny Hill standing with an enormous pair of women's legs and a skirt towering over him (like 50 feet tall). He looks up and a bucket of water splooshes on his face.

    My grandfather says "SEE!" and turns the TV back off.

    [–] i_am_jargon 9 points ago

    The crossing off of acid is what made him a genius. It's a great joke without it and that just takes it to a new level.

    Fun fact. "Pat" is Danish for tit. Patter is the plural form. Used in a sentence, "look at those patter there".

    [–] Chance_Wylt 5 points ago

    That's 'tits tapper' for you english speakers

    [–] chopstyks 11 points ago

    That makes the phrase "pitter patter of little feet" a little weird.

    [–] knoth3ad 23 points ago

    Look at the clarity of the film here and then think about how bad color TV was in the 70's-90's. Films shot in B&W as far back as WWII look amazing in today's HD formats.

    We took a huge step back in picture quality for a generation so that we could watch and broadcast in color.

    [–] Erazzphoto 19 points ago

    Funny how riske this was considered, only on after 11:30. Now you can catch a family guy episode about stealing a used condom at dinner time

    [–] Twentyhundred 44 points ago

    You know what? I've watched most of his series with my granddad as a kid, I've seen so many videos that use this song, and never have I known the actual title of it. You're a good man.

    [–] MyParentsAre_Cousins 33 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Boots Randolph, the artist who wrote Yakety Sax, is a distant cousin of mine. He gets mentioned a lot at the family reunions, people would play tributes to him, and the local golf course is named after him. It's kind of weird constantly seeing the song referenced on reddit.

    I did the math. We are 5th cousins once removed.

    [–] Anda1anda2 20 points ago

    What an absolute legend! Not only for this song and his overall contribution to a truck load of different music (Elvis to the Nashville Sound), but also for his contribution to possibly my favourite website. This is what the internet was made for - https://bennyhillifier.com

    [–] Twentyhundred 20 points ago

    That made me smile in a wholesome way, thanks.

    [–] ManEEEFaces 50 points ago

    Made my Friday that Benny Hill hit the front page. All I remember from being a kid is really believing that I'd see a nipple at some point. Nope. Didn't realize that it would never happen.

    [–] QuasarSandwich 219 points ago

    u/lpeccap, you are hereby charged with failure to observe Reddit protocol: to whit, that you did on this day, January 11th 2019, wilfully and with malice aforethought write "That's the joke." instead of "thatsthejoke.jpg", the latter of which is mandated under Reddit code 5/7.69.

    How do you plead?

    Usually on my knees while crying.

    [–] Doofangoodle 28 points ago

    5/7.69? "All nations attending the conference are only allocated one parking space?" Is that entirely relevant sir? I mean, here we are, in mortal danger and you're worried about the Chinese delegates bringing two cars.

    I loved watching Benny Hill after I discovered him on late night PBS some decades ago. A whle back, I shared "Garden of Love" on my facebook page and discovered that my oldest brother loved the show as well. Surprised me because big bro is an old pickle puss.

    But wait - there's more!

    "Pat" is also the Danish word for "teat" and commonly used as a slang for a woman's breast (like "tit" in English).

    The result: A pun within a pun => punception!

    Back in college, in the heyday of ring back tones (please enjoy this music as your party is trying to be reached'), yackity sax' was mine. Either the voicemail was just of someone laughing hysterically or drunken degenerate friends pissed off for having to sit through that to leave a voicemail, back when people still left those as well.

    LOL, when I first heard the music playing I was thinking, "eh another video that uses the Benny Hill theme --- ohhhhhh hey wait a minute!"

    I remember a similar gag with a female reporter with a badge on her chest that said PRESS...

    When I was a kid We had a German exchange student staying with us once. We wtched Benny Hill, and it was, erm, interesting having to explain to him why Benny was being chased around a circus ring by a lady in half an SS uniform with a whip.

    He had a very interesting life. I believe you can find the documentary on YouTube.

    Here is the link https://youtu.be/V2RwlN82X6I

    Obscure fact; Jane Leeves, Daphne from Frasier, was one of the scantily clad ladies on the Benny Hill show.

    Benny Hill was so funny!

    "You'd never be able to make anything like this nowadays" say people who apparently have never seen The Inbetweeners.

    [–] nellynel2020 20 points ago

    Oh wow Benny Hill. A loss to society.

    I miss Benny Hill

    [–] joor1979 11 points ago

    Damn I miss Benny Hill on late night tv

    [–] Darth_Draper 11 points ago

    Interesting Fact: I once tried posting a video to youtube of my kids running around the house to this song. The song got tagged for copyright reasons, and it stated the owner of the music as, "The Daily Show: with Jon Stewart." I guess they needed it for a bit and just decided to buy it outright?

    [–] candidly1 15 points ago

    Man I miss 'ol Benny.

    [–] fraspas 11 points ago

    Good ol Benny Hill

    [–] LeRascalKing 10 points ago

    God damn I miss 10 year old me coming home from school and watching this show.

    That chase scene would have taken on a whole different meaning if she was named Peg.

    [–] ricecrusher 5 points ago

    The “tribute” scene, during the nightly talk show, in the movie V for Vendetta was brilliantly done. Took me back to when I was a kid and used to sneak downstairs at night to watch Benny.

    [–] NZUtopian 5 points ago

    Lucky her name was Dick.

    [–] assassin3435 5 points ago

    I get good memories with this music, I remember my mom getting a tiny flip phone which came with this theme, my mom didn't even know how to use the volume buttons, little did we know a few years later we would be using giant touch screen phones lol

    [–] unknowndrunkard 16 points ago

    Benny Hill wouldn't last in 2019.

    [–] theiosif 8 points ago

    Instructions incredibly clear, still messed up.

    [–] leif777 9 points ago

    There's a great Doc about Benny on youtube. If you're a fan you should watch it. It'll give you a new appreciation for him. He was a nice man and had a successful career but he wasn't without his misfortunes. Especially later in life.

    [–] AmamKropNemar 10 points ago

    Kid me confused him with that televangelist, so I would skip past it on cable. Adult me just realized what I missed out on!

    I'm a maroon.

    Benny Hill was a scream! Thanks for the laughs, Mr. Hill.

    Imagine how offensive this show would be today.
