Sad Decline of Benny Hill In 1990 The Benny Hill Show was airing in reruns in 97 countries around the world--but not in Great Britain where it had originated. The scourge of political correctness had forced Thames Television to end its association with Hill in 1989 after 20 successful years. Thames defended the move by saying Hill's periodic specials were becoming too costly, viewership was down, and the 65-year-old Hill was looking tired. However, by the late 1980s it was becoming unfashionable for Hill's sexually charged farcical comedy skits to be shown on British TV. (One anti-Hill crusader wildly blamed The Benny Hill Show for all the sexual assaults in the UK!) Hill did not need the money, but he did miss being on TV. He had open offers to appear in Las Vegas and name his price, but Hill did not want to make the journey overseas. Hill was a true loner who never married and was not known to have had a long-term relationship with anyone. The few friends he had said his dismissal by Thames was akin to handing Hill a death sentence. With assets worth more than 7.5 million British pounds, Hill was a bit of a miser. He never owned a car, he did his own shopping, and he lived in a very modest flat. He was also a slob. His flat was usually filled with dirty dishes, papers strewn everywhere, and dirty clothes on the floor. A friend once asked him why he threw his clothes on the floor. "Because they won't stick to the ceiling!" was his pithy answer. In February 1992, the 68-year-old Hill suffered mild heart attack. He was ordered to go on a diet. Two months later he died of another heart attack while sitting in a favorite chair in front of his television. His body was not discovered for three days. Hill's will had not been updated since 1961. The will's beneficiaries (his parents and his sister) had already died. The comedian's vast fortune was eventually split among nieces and nephews whom Hill had barely known. Among those who considered Benny Hill a comic genius were people as diverse as Charlie Chaplin, Michael Jackson and Walter Cronkite!

Happy Days - Joanie Falls For Potsie Fans of Happy Days typically rate a 1975 episode titled They Call It Potsie Love as one of the best of the entire series. (It's my personal favorite!) Here's the premise: When Richie's band is rehearsing, lead singer Potsie Webber declares he can only perform a romantic song passionately if he's singing it to a girl. With no other female present, Potsie reluctantly sings "Put Your Head on My Shoulder" to 14-year-old Joanie Cunningham. As this clip shows, Joanie becomes smitten with her older brother's friend. She sends Potsie anonymous love notes in which she playfully calls him "Dren." (Dren is "nerd" spelled backwards.) Joanie arranges to reveal her identity to Potsie at a given time at Arnold's Drive-In. When Potsie arrives as scheduled to meet his mystery girl and instead sees Joanie, he thinks he's been pranked and reacts angrily. But when Potsie quickly realizes that Joanie has true affection for him, he rejects her sweetly and gently. Two other touching scenes follow shortly thereafter: Richie lovingly comforting his sister and Marion Cunningham consoling her daughter.
