Goodbye - 'Allo 'Allo

entry picture

Sacre bleu, Mon dieu, what a solemn day at the café

The fallen Madonna with the big boobies is weeping

Saddened by the untimely death of Gorden Kaye

Good moaning I was just pissing by the door

Listen very carefully I will say ziss only once

Edith breaks into song as she has never sung before

Yvette is beside herself with grief but a plan has she

You may wonder what I am doing says Herr Flick

Take off your clothes and then you may kiss me

Jolly good on the show must go (or you will be shot)

So long Rene au revoir vive la resistance

Goodbye ‘Allo ‘Allo

Hi Paul - Some of todays PC correct pundits just don't get it.

Although as Garnett, Mitchell would spit out lines such as “yer bleedin’ coons coming over here, taking our jobs,” and rail against the Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson (“yer bleedin’ ’Arold”) he believed that 99 per cent of viewers appreciated that you were supposed to laugh at Garnett, not with him. “Alf did a hundred times more to combat racism than all the well-meaning clergymen who ever preached against it,” he once said. “He said all the things that people weren’t supposed to talk about. All those awful things that fester in
people’s souls."

Cheers Tom :)

Hi Tom, great way to remember a fantastic TV show and you have generated some interesting comments. I'm a massive fan of comedy and have been watching old episodes of 'Til Death Us Do Part recently - some outrageous lines (by today's PC standards) but hilarious at the same time!!

BTW, did you ever see the Xmas special where Alf is rabbiting on about the birth of Jesus and how there were no rooms at the Inn? Dandy Nichols replies, something like, "well, what did they expect, everywhere's busy at Christmas". One of my all-time favourite comic lines. Cheers, Paul

Hi M.C. – Well said. Bring back Till Death Do Us Part and Benny Hill. In this politically correct world, the self-righteous look down their noses with disdain at the comedy of yesteryear. Racism and prejudice is still firmly under the surface. Self-deprecating humour is a refreshing tonic that is sadly lacking these days. :)

The pundit from the Daily Mirror on the Sky News Press
Preview said that "Allo Allo" would not get made today.
All the more reason why I enjoy the repeats on Freeview
so much. It was a show that took no prisoners (so to speak) and no subject within its WW2 remit was safe from
merciless lampooning. We have grown less mature with
the passing years, unable to realise that to laugh long and
loud at the things we see in ourselves as well as in others
is the best medicine towards preventing their reality. If
Der Fuhrer had been asked who were high on his list for elimination if captured, I'll bet an old penny to a pfennig
that those who ridiculed him and his cronies were very near
the top!
