HEE HAW: PFFT YOU WAS GONE REVIEWED
“Hee Haw: Pfft You Was Gone” brings four episodes of Classic Country to DVD. Some of the episodes I swear have been on DVD before. But, how am I going to reject more Merle Haggard and vintage Marty Robbins? The DVD presents a ton of sketches and some classic music. Roy Clark even gets multiple chances to shine. It’s weird having a performer like him never get the time to shine due to being a host. But, that’s kinda what happens. If this is your cup of tea, pick it up.

The Plot Thus Far
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! You Was Gone!” Aside from the incredible performances, the episode also includes fan-favorite sketches, “Hey Grandpa! What’s for Supper?,” “The KORN News” and more.
