Segment Summary: Travel back in time to witness Benny Hill's funeral.
- This segment is a parody of a skit from the Benny Hill Show.
Trivia / Info:
- The wacky music accompanying the high-speed footage resembles "Yakety Sax", the theme song for The Benny Hill Show.
- The show typically closed with a speeded-up chase scene involving himself and often a crew of scantily-clad women, a takeoff on the stereotypical Keystone Kops chase scenes.
- The show also had "dummys" falling off of building, cliffs, or other tall objects and the pile of "dummys" were switched to real people instantly with an obvious cut of the "film".
