Obviously, some people just didn’t find Benny Hill funny, and that’s fine. Nobody makes everybody laugh.
But the people who get offended by Benny (and feminists, in particular) are being ridiculous. Because, if you think about it, in almost all of Benny’s sketches, the joke is on HIM! He drools over nubile young women, but he never ends up scoring with them! More often, his attempts at seduction end in disaster, and he has to run like the Dickens (to the tune of “Yakkety Sax”) from the police or the girls’ muscular boyfriends!
Benny was the last of his kind. As long as he was around, a little bit of vaudeville, burlesque and old-fashioned English music hall entertainment survived. Most of his “dirty” jokes were ancient, and most of his songs were merely ancient dirty jokes put into rhyme set to silly melodies. That was part of their charm.
I recall that, back in the 1970s, some parents’ groups in the U.S. regarded “Three’s Company”( a show I never liked) as immoral. But really, if you think about it, NOTHING ever really happened on that show! The whole show revolved around one (and only one) joke: that the landlord suspects hanky panky is going on between Tripper and the girls, but in reality, everyone is totally chaste! There’s lots of innuendo, but nobody on “Three’s Company” ever actually has sex!
In the same way, Benny Hill was constantly making comical attempts at scoring with gorgeous, scantily clad women, but he always failed! Benny Hill was to sex as Elmer Fudd was to hunting! Even Andrea Dworkin or Jerry Falwell ought to able to watch an episode of “The Benny Hill Show” and laugh.
You needn’t like his brand of humor, but if it offends you, you’re taking him too seriously.
