* BratsWithSlingshots: One skit had Benny [[ImprovisedWeapon make a slingshot out of a stick and some laundry]]. It turns out to be hilariously destructive, and he runs around causing chaos with it. He nearly gets himself lynched when he [[spoiler: accidentally kills a stripper while trying to pop the balloon she was using in her act]]. Guess he missed the memo about not aiming them at people...

* WritingAroundTrademarks: One Benny Hill sketch has a pretty woman, frustrated by all the pawing she is receiving, turning green and HulkingOut. Legend had it that when Marvel Comics found out, they created ComicBook/SheHulk to prevent this from happening again. (In truth, they created She-Hulk as a response to ''Series/TheIncredibleHulk1977'', fearing the producers would create a spinoff the way network execs did with ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan''.)

* SlowerThanASnail: This gag is used a few times during the show's {{Undercrank}} moments. Notably, with Benny as a cyclist trying to speed up, only to be outraced by a grandma on her own cycle, and then by a mother pushing a baby carrier.



* StrippingSnag: One of the most common form of WardrobeMalfunction, usually accompanied by an exaggerated StockSoundEffect of fabric ripping. For example in one sketch, some coppers (male and female) are giving chase to Benny, and have to go past a barbwire fence. After struggling for a bit, they go through but all of them snag their uniforms in doing so, ripping them off at the exact same time and leaving them in their underwear.

The ending song of ''The Benny Hill Show'' was "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnHmskwqCCQ Yakety Sax]]" by Boots Randolph, an ''infamous'' EarWorm if there ever was one, with the ability to [[SoundtrackDissonance/YaketySax inject relentless levity into any situation]]. Endlessly parodied; if there's a nonsensical ChaseScene (or [[http://bennyhillifier.com/ anything]], really), play "Yakety Sax"!

* SpellingForEmphasis: In one sketch, Benny and Jackie Wright are arguing in front of a woman they find attractive. This annoys the woman so much that she calls them "a pair of twits: T-W-I-T-S!", poking Benny in the chest with each letter. Benny smiles and calls her "[[Film/MaryPoppins supercalifragilisticexpialidocious]]" but before he gets the chance to spell the word and poke her in the chest, Jackie spells it without doing any poking.
