Allo Allo Classic TV Show
René runs a small café in France during World War II. He always seems to have his hands full: he's having affairs with most of his waitresses, he's keeping his wife happy, he's trying the please the German soldiers who frequent his cafe, and he's running a major underground operation for the resistance.
Allo Allo Fan Tributes7 Nathalie from Belgium: Mm, it's hard to pick just one favorite moment. But I think that the scene where Lt. Gruber has to interrogate the undertaker - under supervision of the General - is the one that stands out the most. It's a hilarious scene, but like I said, there are lots of scenes to pick from. ;-)
I just LOVE 'Allo 'Allo, as it's bringing me a lot of joy. So much, that I keep re-watching it over and over again!

4 Kathy from Ohio/USA: 'Allo from across the pond! I'm a huge fan of this show. There are so many wonderful scenes it's hard to pick out just one for a favorite. I'd have to say the Spanish Flamingo Fandango skit they did when they faked the airmens' murder...."I was pissing by the door when I heard two shats....." Priceless. The Gateau from the Chateau scene is brilliant as well. Personally I think that was Sam Kelly's best episode.
Cheers, and a good moaning to you!
3 Rowena Razak from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: I'm a huge fan of Allo Allo. I've been watching it since I was 12! I love all the bits with Herr Flick and Helga. I love the simple-minded cheekiness of it all.
2 R from Londonderry N.I: My favourite moment from allo allo is when the staff from the cafe are arrested and taken to a british prisoner of war camp.
1 Garry Herring from Hartlepool: Well, what can I say, excellent one-liners, truly popular with everyone (bar the Germans of course). The most memorable scene I recall is in series 6 where the old undertaker and Msr. Leclerc have a sword duel over rene's wife ("a pair of geriatric Errol Flynns" as Rene calls them) and herr flick arrives disguised as a german off icer named as "field Marshall Von Krackenfart!) tremendously funny. My favourite comedy series.
