YMMV / Hee Haw

  • Ear Worm: Several.
    • "Gloom, despair and agony on me!
      Deep dark depression, excessive misery!
      If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all!
      Gloom, despair and agony on me!"
    • "Where, oh where, are you tonight?
      Why did you leave me here all alone?
      I searched the world over and I thought I'd found true love
      You met another, and PTHHHT you was gone!"
    • "Well, we're not ones to go around spreadin' rumors
      Why, really, we're just not the gossipy kind
      No, you'll never hear one of us repeatin' gossip
      So you better be sure and listen close the first time."
  • Jumping the Shark: In 1991, to attract a younger demographic and to reverse a decline in affiliates, the producers decided to completely revamp the show by moving the main setting from Kornfield Kounty to the city, and attracting younger singers (in place of the traditional country stars that had appeared on the show). The move didn't work (and in some cases, angered longtime fans), and the new format lasted a year.
  • Memetic Mutation: The "Sa-lute!" has been widely copied and imitated.
  • Values Dissonance: Some of the jokes were based on sexism, fat shaming and other themes which were perfectly acceptable at the time the show was aired but wouldn't go over well at all today.
