Funny / Harry Hill's TV Burp

Harry Hill's TV Burp is pretty much a living, breathing generator of CMOFs. You'll find a good few dozen a show, to the amount that trying to write out every single one would end up making the page look like an encyclopedia.
  • From the episode dated 26th March 2011, we get a scene from Coronation Street with four characters looking like it could turn into a pretty nasty fight. Harry does the usual lead-in, but before he can scream "FIGHT!", it cuts back to Coronation Street where the scene degenerates into an all-out brawl. Around half a minute later, Harry steps in and declares "FIGHT!", being followed with 'Heather', Nobbin (Some weird horse-skull thing from a show he looked at the previous week), the Knitted Character, a bug-eyed store dummy, and Wagbo! All while "I Predict A Riot" blares in the background.
    • From the same episode, he looks at Jean-Claude Van Damme's show, "Behind Closed Doors". Whenever he makes a joke about him, Jean appears (Via a scene transition from his show) and punches Harry square in the face. The third time this happens, he grabs Jean by the arm and throws him to the ground before proceeding to fight him.
  • Nothing a bit of lippy won't sort.
  • Harry's Impersonation of a mannequin.
  • When reviewing an episode of Lewis, Harry comments on the chase scene's Soundtrack Dissonance, and it leads to this:
    Harry Hill: See, if you change the music, you change the whole feel of a show. If you were to change Coronation Street's title music...
    (the theme of The Professionals play over Corrie's opening titles)
    Harry Hill: Changes the feel of the show! Take Heartbeat...
    (The Sex Pistols' "Anarchy in the UK" plays over opening titles)
    Harry Hill: Changes the feel of the show! Take the ITV News...
    (the theme to Steptoe and Son plays over the opening titles)
    Harry Hill: Changes the feel of the show! Take, EastEnders...
    (The Smiths' "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" plays over opening titles)
    Harry Hill: [shrugs] Obviously, not always the case.
  • This:
    Harry Hill: And now, to Emmerdale. Yes — some of the characters actually watch it!
    Harry Hill: It's Emmerdale!
    • The entire Wagbo saga qualifies as this.
  • When the shows Harry reviewed had suspiciously similar dialog to many of his running gags, he would hit back — often with subversions.
    • From Series?Emmerdale, a man says that he's "seen the light" with a woman he's trying to seduce, "but there's only one way to find out..."
      Harry Hill: FIIIIIGHT!!! [pauses, then moves on uncomfortably]
    • Then, EastEnders did a blatant one.
      Girl: Who's better? God or Santa?
      Vicar: It's more of a matter of opinion.
      Girl: If they were to have a fight, who would win? God or Santa?
      (Vicar looks away uncertainly)
      Harry Hill: Hmmm.... if there was only one way to find out... (Aside Glance) Look, EastEnders, the more times you try to make one of your fights happen, the less it's likely, okay?
  • This chase scene.
  • Harry constantly points out that Nana Moone's boyfriend in season 3 is "the bloke off Lovejoy".
  • From the 11th December 2011 episode, we get a montage of Phil from EastEnders smashing through doors... leading to this hilarious sequence.
  • The Running Gag in the 2012 series of a soap character throwing a glass at something in anger, then Harry to join in throwing things until the target is broken (such as a picture falling off a wall), then a man comes on to award him a large teddy bear in a polythene bag (as though he'd won a prize at a coconut style) and he does a Black Comedy sketch about the bear being suffocated.
  • Cataracts?!
  • In one EastEnders episode, some of the male characters decide to join the soccer team, much to Harry's disgust.
    • He even lists all the annoying tropes and clichés.
      Harry Hill: Not a football competition again! We've got weeks of this! "I wanna manage it!" "What're we gonna call it?" "He's no good! He can't be in it!" "Someone's dropped out! You'll have to step in at the last minute!" "Cor! I never knew you was good at football!" PLEASE!!! ... I mean, couldn't one of the Ferraras get ill again, or something?
    • The East Enders Sebuttio set,
    • Billy Mitchell and Minty talk about Gary's newborn as they talk about him being the Walford football team's manager.
      Minty: Someday, you're gonna tell your son that you were once the manager of the Walford Wanderers.
      Bill Mitchell: [smile fades] ...D'you think he'd be proud of me?
      Harry Hill: [grumpily] NO. Why would he be? Would he proud of a dog in a wig?! Eh?!
  • Is it me, or is Phil Mitchell deflating?
  • Waiting for Britney Spears...
  • Every time Harry mentions the channel rivalry between BBC and ITV.
    • He described an ITV invention competition series on ITV1 as "The Apprentice with ad breaks."
    • When he reviews BBC's Life On Mars, Harry comes to this revelation:
      Harry Hill: Wait a minute... solving crimes in olden times? I've seen that before somewhere...
      Harry Hill: It's Heartbeat! [crossly] HANDS OFF OUR SHOWS!! (Aside Glance) Okay, fair enough — we did nick Dancing On Ice.
      • Then, in a scene where Gene Hunt and Sam Tyler cuff a crook by a leisure centre, Sam goes to recite You Do Not Have to Say Anything which is interrupted by Gene:
      Gene Hunt: YA NICKED!!!
      Harry Hill: "You're nicked!" ... Hang on, they're doing it again...
      (scene from The Sweeney plays)
      Jack Reagan: Right! You two are nicked!
      Harry Hill: [angrily] HANDS OF OUR SHOWS!!
    • He also likes to point out that the ITV show Primeval is similar to Doctor Who.
  • It's not a cube!
  • The ENTIRE Pronoun Trouble/Who's on First? concerning Ai the chimpanzee.
  • Harry trying to figure out the gibberish being spoken on Coronation Street. The eventual translation? Brown sauce is for poofs!
  • Many of his snipes at The Apprentice.
    • On one introduction, he says:
      Harry Hill: [It's time for The Apprentice] with Sir Alan Sugar, or as I like to call him ... Sid James.
      (Footage of Alan Sugar and Sid James' photographs are put side-by-side)
      Harry Hill: (animating the mouth of Alan Sugar's mugshot) [Sid James impression] You're fired. Yakyakyakyakyakyakyakyak!!!
    • When Harry mocks a contestant called Nick (that is practically the male version of a Go-Getter Girl), who claims he's always been successful.
      Nick: ... Although, I did get a B in one GCSE, which, to me, is a failure, having got straight-As throughout my life.
      Harry Hill: [weakly] Yeah... I got 19 out of 20 on my spelling [test] ... it still rambles... (Aside Glance) It seems that "i" before "e" doesn't apply to "receive", but ... who knew?
      • And to top it all:
      Alan Sugar: [Nick,] you've got a big head. You're FIRED!!
      Harry Hill: [under his breath] I blame that B you got in that GCSE...
    • The men's team desperately trying to come up with a name, and Saiid suggests "The A-Team".
      Harry Hill: That's clever, I guess. Name your team after a 1980s' TV show.
      Saiid: Just to justify why I think we should go with that name — the A-Team, whatever task they do, whatever they put their mind to, they are winners. ...In fact, I've got another one — "The Winners"?
      Harry Hill: Yeah, but what if you don't win? That'll just rub it in, won't it? "What's your team called?" "The Winners." "Did you win?" "No, we lost."
    • A team try to create a poster that would advertises cheap airline fights, leading to a diagram that makes Harry think:
      Harry Hill: Now, to me, that looks like a polar bear being poked in the eye by a stick-man.
      • When he sees their final design hanging on a billboard:
      Harry Hill: Yeah, not bad — I prefer mine. (waves a picture to the camera) It's a polar bear being poked in the eye with a stick. By Jo off the The Apprentice.
      • Also, this joke:
      Harry Hill: Ah yes — Amsair. You see, everything's got to have "Ams..." in front of it: "Amstrad", "Amsair" — that's why [Alan Sugar's] stair business, Amstairs, folded. People kept phoning up for small rodents. "Hello, [this is] Amstairs. ...No, we don't sell hamsters, no. We sell stairs — Amstairs."
  • When Harry notices Paul Burrell's enormous biceps on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!:
    Harry Hill: Where's he get those muscles? ...It's from carting [Princess Diana's] stuff up into the loft!
  • The segment on Muslim Driving School ("Hey, here's a show I didn't expect to see on TV this week!").
