Was Hee Haw a thing in Louisiana?
I grew up in the South, but a long way from here. Saturday nights in the early to mid-80’s always meant Hee Haw. I can still remember going to stay with my great grandma on the weekends. Hee Haw would come on at 7:30, and we’d be in bed by 9. It was still a little daylight outside. Of course, she’d be up by 4 am... making me coffee. I was all of 7 years old or so.

I don’t know how many of you baws had the same experience I did, but it was wonderful. No cares, no worries... your biggest concern was wondering what was for dinner and what was for breakfast the next morning. Life seemed more simple back then.

I’m just reminiscing about the good ol’ days.

Where, oh where, are you tonight?

First time I saw Garth Brooks was on Hee Haw... that had to be near the end of its stint. My grandparents watched it for years though.

What's for Dinner Grandpa?

Raised in Upper Gumplandia.My Granddaddy loved some Hee Haw.I watched with him.

My Grandparents never got cable.They both lived til 80+,and both passed in the early 1980's.

Bonanza,Gun Smoke,Lawrence Welk,Hee Haw,Walter Cronkite,and Ali fights.

My Grandmother liked watching Ali fights.Late in his reign as H.W. Champ,Ali fought,"the Bum of the Month,as he called them.

My grandparents were always watching Hee Haw. I definitely remember watching it often and loved the "and pfffffft you were gone." I searched the World over and thought I found true love....... You met another...... I remember Minnie Pearl being about 100 years old.

As a kid, we only had 2.5 channels on the tv. Hee Haw was good but no where as exciting as Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom!

Oh hell yeah..... Every Sunday it was on the TV. Once or twice a month the family would meetup at Someones house... usually Paw Paws house, for the Sunday dinner after church thing and it was Mutual of Omahas Wild Kingdom, Lawrence Welk, then Hee Haw.

I always thought hee haw was lame. Even as a kid, most of the jokes were not that funny and you could see them coming from a mile away. I still remember it fondly just for nostalgia's sake.

In North Louisiana it was on every Saturday night at 6pm. I still watch it today sometimes on RFD. That was a great time. I loved it growing up. And I HATE Country music.

Wasn't a thing in New Orleans, but every time I went to the country, it was big.
