"Heil Honey I'm Home" was a very short-lived 1990 British TV series featuring Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun in a 1950s suburban setting where they attempt to co-exist with their Jewish neighbors, the Goldensteins. Hilarity ensues. Somehow the show was actually greenlit and managed to air one episode before being pulled off the air. There were a total of 8 episodes produced, but the remaining 7 were never shown.

Anybody actually have a copy of any of the episodes from this exercise in extreme political wrongness?

Holy crap had no idea about this but it sounds hilarious. These guys were definitly way way ahead of their time.

Please. Find. This. Show.

This reminds me of the idea my friends and I had for the Terry Schiavo sitcom, "Oh, That Schiaves!", where a common occurence is that she is prompted to respond to something and then sits there, silent and vacant, and the audience lets out a roar of laughter as if she said the wittiest thing in the world. That woulda been gold.

I used to be very active on this forum. I’m not really anymore. Hi everybody. You’re all awesome. Keep up the good work.

Reminds me of the Monty Python skit with a "Mister Hitler" living in a boarding house in the UK.

Landlady It's their third time here with us, we can't keep you away can we? Ha, ha, and over here is Mr Hilter.
Landlady leads Mr and Mrs Johnson over to a table at which Adolf Hitler is sitting poring over a map. He is in full Nazi uniform. Himmler and Von Ribbentrop are also sitting at the table with him, Himmler in Nazi uniform and von Ribbentrop in evening dress, with an Iron Cross.
Hitler Ach. Good time...good afternoon.
Landlady Ooh planning a little excursion are we Mr Hilter?
Hitler Ja, ja. We haff a little... (to others) Was ist rückweise bewegen?
Von Ribbentrop Hike.
Himmler Hiking.
Hitler Ah yes, ve make a little hike for, for Bideford.
Johnson (leaning over map) Oh well, you'll want the A39 then...no, no, you've got the wrong map there, this is Stalingrad, you want the Ilfracombe and Barnstaple section.
Hitler Ah! Hein...Reginald you have the wrong map here you silly old leg-before-wicket English person.

A Hitler sitcom without Mel Brooks being involved? The mind boggles!
Speaking of Mel...

Where were you in '77?

Indeed; I was pleased to be able to procure a torrented copy. Quality is horrible, but I never thought I'd see it in the first place! It's funnier than people have made it out to be, but it's also pretty painfully bad. Worth seeing once, at least.

There is a low-quality copy of it on YouTube as well. Try a search.

As far as I know, only the first episode has made it out there... and that probably only because somebody happened to record it the one and only time it aired (kind of like the Holiday Special, isn't it?).

I don't expect the remaining 7 episodes to see the light of day anytime soon, if ever at all.
