Hey Hey It's Saturday is returning!

My life will once more have meaning!

If you are Australian, you will know about Hey Hey, and remember it either as the silliest show ever, or wonderful. It ran for 27 years until axed in 1999, and really was a defining statement on Aussie culture (ahem).

Here are Daryl and Ossie, well over 30 years ago:

Hey Hey started life as a silly kids show, but evolved into a silly adults show. Each show is two hours where you put your brain on the shelf and just relax.

Anyway, the good news is that Hey Hey is coming back in 2010. There were two pilot shows in 2009 to gauge viewer interest. The only problem is, it will screen on Wednesday -- not good enough! Sign this partition to bring it back on Saturday night where it belongs:

"Hi Barry I came across some interesting news in your neck of the woods somewhat :) Man is that ever interesting, Could you image a bird that would make a emu look like a midget!!. It would be cool to go and see one if they actually pull it off. I wish I had the knowledge to do stuff like that, I would love to work there!! ttuuxxx
