Heil Honey I'm Home

In view of yesterdays post regarding misplaced ideas on confronting prejudice I was reminded of possibly the worst idea in the history of British TV comedy; Heil Honey I'm home was a sit com about Adolf Hitler's hilarious home life and was made for the fledgling BSkyB satellite channel in 1990.

The show centred on comedy versions of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun, who live next door to a Jewish couple, Arny and Rosa Goldenstein. The shows plot is based on Hitler's inability to get along with his neighbours, it was cancelled after just one episode.
Quite what the powers that be were thinking when they commissioned it, is hard to assess. It is awful in execution, content and intent.
If it is trying to be a satirical swipoe at Nazi's in the vein of Mel Brooks, it has to be said that it is to The Producers what ladette to Lady is to Kathy come home.
It's a mind-bogglingly unfunny parody and there's little I can add to this once you watch the clip. Seeing is believing.
