Heil Honey I’m Home! (Galaxy, 1990)

Heil Honey I’m Home! was a British sitcom written by Geoff Atkinson that was cancelled after one episode. 11 total episodes were produced. The show’s premise was that Adolf Hitler (Neil McCaul) and Eva Braun (DeNica Fairman) live in Berlin next door to Jewish neighbors Arny and Rosa Goldenstein (Gareth Marks and Caroline Gruber). Television historian Marian Calabro described Heil Honey I’m Home! as “perhaps the world’s most tasteless situation comedy.” Though others have defended the show. English professor David Hawkes argued that the show failed because it “disastrously exceeded” the limits of irony.

The show was cancelled almost immediately. It currently sits at #61 on Channel 4’s list of “100 Greatest TV Moments from Hell.” Heil Honey I’m Home! aired on September 30, 1990.
