"Hee Haw" hosted by Buck Owens and Roy Clark, premiered on CBS in June of 1969. Originally a variety show, the series, which was set in rural Kornfield Kounty, was comprised of a number of recurring comedy skits such as "PFFT! You Was Gone" and "Gloom, Despair, and Agony On Me." In addition, numerous country music acts were showcased weekly with stars such as Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn performing often.
Hee Haw: The Musical will vary significantly from the original series. The musical, produced by Steve Buchanon of the Opry Entertainment Group, will focus on a young woman from Kornfield Kounty who, upon becoming engaged, decides she'd like to travel the world before settling down. Popular characters from the series, such as Lulu, Grandpa, and Junior, are set to appear in the musical.
