Following the Hey Hey It’s Saturday 50th Anniversary special, fans have taken to social media to praise the show and ask the network to bring it back permanently.
“Reliving my childhood then adolescence then early adulthood. Hey hey it’s 50 years so many memories so much fun some scripted some gone wrong. Early morning Sat before sport then must watch before heading out to the pub on Saturday early evenings,” one person tweeted.
Another added:”How much am I enjoying the Hey Hey It’s Saturday 50 year reunion on telly tonight!!! Bring it back!!!!”
Watching Hey Hey It’s Saturday 50th anniversary tonight I thought about how simple life used to be, how easy it was to laugh, to take the mickey without offending, and how simple humour could enrich our lives. We need what this show gave us. #HeyHeyIts50Years #heyhey #Australia pic.twitter.com/pSdcFVdW0t

I enjoyed the Hey Hey 50 year special
It’s a show that means something different to many people
Yes some of it hasn’t aged well. Can’t deny that. We acknowledge that
To me, it meant 2-3 hours on a Saturday night having a laugh with my dad
Nothing more, nothing less#HeyHey

Watching the Hey Hey It’s Saturday 50th Special makes me realise even more than ever that we have next to no avenues for Australian creative talent to get exposure or their break out. How sad considering the talent we have here

How much I miss solid entertaining loose live TV such as Hey Hey It’s Saturday… it’s such a shame for the spirit of television and for fun family entertainment that we don’t have a replacement. #HeyHeyIts50Years #livetv #funtv

Gonna say it again: Australia is seriously missing out on a good variety entertainment show like Hey Hey It’s Saturday. I’m sick of reality singing and dancing, bring us a show that showcases the best Aussie entertainment has to offer! #HeyHeyIts50Years
