Hee Haw: "Hey Grandpa! What's for supper?" Skit


Hee Haw was an television variety show featuring country music and humor with fictional rural Kornfield Kounty as a backdrop. It aired on CBS from 1969–1992.

The Hee Haw "Hey Grandpa! What's for supper?"  skit opened with Grandpa Jones cleaning a window pane (with no glass in it), then reciting a dinner menu in poetic verse. Often, he would describe a delicious, country-style meal (e.g., chicken and biscuits smothered in rich gravy, and collard greens), after which the audience would reply approvingly, "yum-m yum-m!"

  2. I have some interesting things from the Hee Haw Show that was given to me that I thought someone would be interested in purchasing. I have a 1970 Country Music Birthday Calendar with many black & white pictures of the Hee Haw crew and other Country Music stars. I also have a Hee Haw Family Scrapebook in color for sell as well. I do not know how much they would go for, but I would consider all offers. I can be contacted at either my email: Anniee50@charter.net or at my phone number at: 423-246-1306 Anytime

    Thanks, Annie
