Like an old friend dropping by for a visit, Hee Haw is back to take us back to a funnier, less complicated time with HEE HAW: PFFT! YOU WAS GONE!

This 2-Disc Collection Showcases Four Classic Episodes (1969-1973) Featuring Favorite Kornfield Kounty Sketches Such as "Pfft! You Was Gone," "Pickin' and Grinnin," "Hey Grandpa, What's for Supper?" and "Archie's Barbershop," along with Live Performances from Country Music Legends including Merle Haggard, George Jones, Dolly Parton, Marty Robbins, Tammy Wynette and More!

From 1969 to 1992, the whole family could gather around the TV set and enjoy the laughter and songs of the wildly talented Hee Haw cast. This gut-busting 2-disc set features four of the best vintage Hee Haw episodes from 1969 to 1973 - available on retail DVD for the very first time! Kick back and join hosts Roy Clark and Buck Owens and the Kornfield Kounty gang for a-pickin' and a-grinnin'! Joining the classic "Pfft! You Was Gone!" sketches with Archie Campbell and Gordie Tapp, home viewers are certain to slap a knee over Grandpa Jones in "Hey Grandpa! What's for Supper?," belly laugh at the cornfield full of jokes, enjoy bushels of yuks in "Archie's Barbershop," the twisted soap opera "The Culhanes of Kornfield Kounty," and sketches featuring stars like Minnie Pearl, Grandpa Jones and Junior Samples.

Classic country music performances also abound, as Roy and Buck play and sing their best songs and country music legends like Merle Haggard, George Jones, Dolly Parton, Marty Robbins, Tammy Wynette, and others drop by to sing their big hits. The set also features all-new interviews with country music stars Moe Bandy and Aaron Tippin, who both appeared on the show multiple times.

HEE HAW: PFFT! YOU WAS GONE! includes four complete episodes, rarely seen since their original broadcasts:
  • EPISODE #02, hailing from Season 1 (original broadcast date: June 22, 1969), features highlights such as Merle Haggard singing "Mama Tried" and "Branded Man," Roy Clark performing "Yesterday, When I Was Young," and Buck Owens and the cast performing "But You Know I Love You"; sketches include multiple installments of "Pfft, You Was Gone," "The Culhanes," and "KORN News" and Archie tells the story of "Rindercella."
  • EPISODE #34, which originally aired on October 13, 1970 during Season 2, features Marty Robbins crooning "(I'm So) Afraid Of Losing You Again" and "Don't Worry,"; sketches include several installments of "Gordie's General Store," "Moonshiners" and "Samuel B. Sternwheeler," along with everyone's favorite "Pickin' and Grinnin'."
  • Country Music Hall of Fame legends Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner came home to roost in EPISODE #70 (original broadcast date: February 12, 1972). Dolly sings "Coat of Many Colors," Roy Clark performs "(There'll Be) Peace In The Valley (For Me)," Porter performs "What Ain't To Be, Just Might Happen," and Dolly and Porter sing a duet of "The Right Combination." Sketches include the Kornfield Kounty regulars "Dr. Campbell," "The Cornfield" and "Samples Sales," as well as the always popular "Archie's Barbershop" and "Hey Grandpa, What's for Supper?"
  • More music legends visit Kornfield Kounty in EPISODE # 111 (original broadcast date: November 3, 1973), with George Jones ("Nothing Ever Hurt Me (Half As Bad As Losing You)"), Tammy Wynette ("Kids Say The Darndest Things"), a duet from George and Tammy ("We're Gonna Hold On"), and Tammy and Archie Campbell performing "Pfft!

ABOUT HEE HAW
Conceived as a rural alternative to Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, HEE HAW landed on television in 1969 as a summer replacement series for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. With a cast of characters including Minnie Pearl, Grandpa Jones and Archie Campbell, knee-slapping comedic zingers, and jaw-dropping musical performances, the comedy-variety show, co-hosted by Buck Owens and Roy Clark, captivated the country. In 1971, after two successful years, CBS dropped the show in an effort to "de-countrify" the network's programming; however, it was quickly picked up and aired for the next 21 years, making HEE HAW the longest-running weekly syndicated original series in television history. All rights and trademarks for Hee Haw are owned by GPSI, Inc. whose parent company, Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc. (NYSE:RHP), is based in Nashville, Tennessee.
