    Bristish comedy at it’s best, if today’s writers could entertain us in the same way the country would feel a happier place to live.
    May Compo and co remain in our minds and make us smile for ever.

    My granddad loved this show. We played the theme tune at his funeral as it was what he wanted. The theme had never seemed so moving to me up until that point. RIP grandddad I miss you

    @tommytoxen But as some small consolation, Peter Sallis has actually attended the Oscars and been shown in the audience on American TV. As the voice of Wallace in those Wallace & Grommit shorts/feature films, a few years ago when it won best animated film. I’m thinking he’s the only Last of the Summer Wine cast member who’s actually attended the Oscars and been shown in that audience, as a part of the Aardman entourage.

    I have major roots with this program. As a boy in England circa 78 I watched this on daytime TV. It was like happy food, a comedy about nothing, no doubt Seinfeld drew inspiration. One Christmas I was given a harmonica and this theme was the first tune I found on it. I performed it at a school function and went on to tour for 8 years in a blues band and record as a harp player. I downloaded the full series and watch it with a smile. Sorry indeed to see it go.

    I didn’t think anybody would troll this video, but I think the Justin Beiber videos are at max troll capacity right now, and we’re getting the overflow.

    Here, Here! A Toast! With The Last of The Summer Wine!!

  14. Firrboxfryup says:

    It’s all over now.
    So sad really.
    It’s a very uplifting sort of comedy, very sort of fell good…!

  15. addtoface says:

    Nice one ……

  16. Burdell3 says:

    Of course it had to come to an end,,,, people do die, you know! But what a run! So many of us can’t appreciate the sort of humor and good script-writing that this show was made of. A true gift.

  17. Burdell3 says:

    @drepmore

    This viewer needs to find some perspective! Good comedy always finds a foible and runs with it! If we can’t laugh at ourselves, then we are poor indeed!

  18. TheLloydA1 says:

    it was not that it made you laugh really hard every 5 seconds but the way in which the show happens and the way in which it makes you laugh is different to any othere comedy when you watch it , it feels you with a warm feeling and makes you feel calm and happy and you really connect to the caracters. and to be hounest it was over when compo died he was really the core of the show and the show was at its best with compo,cleggy and foggy.

  19. JuanMacready says:

    @TheEddiejones15 Well, it’s all over now.

  20. MST3Claye says:

    @JuanMacready wow………………….

  21. TheEddiejones15 says:

    @JuanMacready i watch it and think its great! just cause its a old show does not mean that just old people watch it!

  22. JuanMacready says:

    @TheEddiejones15 It’s only because old people like my grandparents watch it and Diagnosis Murder. They should put something decent on a Sunday afternoon.

  23. TheEddiejones15 says:

    @JuanMacready would something thats crap be the longest running sitcom in the world? dumbass if you disagree you have no idea what real comedy is

  24. JuanMacready says:

    @TheEddiejones15 No it’s fucking crap and I hope Peter Sallis and Frank Thornton both die very soon.

  25. TheEddiejones15 says:

    @JuanMacready fuck off last of the summer wine is great and really funny
