Archie Campbell (November 7, 1914 – August 29, 1987) was an American comedian, writer, and star of Hee Haw, a popular long-running country-flavored network television variety show. He was also a recording artist with several hits on the RCA label in the 1960s.
Biography,Early careerCampbell studied art at Mars Hill College in Mars Hill, North Carolina, after which he began a radio career at WNOX in Knoxville. After a year alongside Roy Acuff on their Mid-Day Merry-Go-Round, he relocated to WDOD in Chattanooga, where he stayed until joining the United States Navy in 1941. At the end of World War II, Campbell returned to WNOX. He left that station for rival WROL where he helped start Knoxvilles first country music television show (on WROL-TV), Country Playhouse, that premiered in 1952 and ran until 1958.At the close of that show, he moved to Nashville to replace Rod Brasfield on the nationally syndicated Prince Albert segment of the Grand Ole Opry. Shortly after, he signed a contract with RCA Victor and one of his early singles, Trouble in the Amen Corner reached the 1960 country music Top 25. After an unsuccessful stint with the Starday label, Campbell returned to RCA in 1966 and had three Top 30 singles: The Men in My Little Girls Life (1966), The Dark End of the Street (1968), and Tell It Like It Is (1968). He was named Comedian of the Year in 1969 by the Country Music Association.RoutinesOne of Campbells signature routines was to tell stories in Spoonerism form, with the first letters of words in some phrases intentionally switched for comic effect. The best-known of these stories was RinderCella, his re-telling of the fairy tale Cinderella, about the girl who slopped her dripper (dropped her slipper). Campbell once told the RinderCella story on an episode of the game show Juvenile Jury. At the conclusion of the story, host Jack Barry said Thats one of the funniest stories Carchie Ampbell tells. All of Campbells spoonerism routines borrowed heavily from comedy routines performed by Colonel Stoopnagle on the radio show Stoopnagle and Budd in the 1930s. (Colonel Stoopnagle was the stage name of F. Chase Taylor, 1897–1950.)Campbell also performed a routine with various partners generally known as Thats Bad/Thats Good. Campbell would state a troublesome occurrence, when the partner would sympathize by saying, Oh thats bad, Campbell would quickly counter, No, thats good!, and then state a good result from the previous occurrence. When the partner would say, Oh thats good!, Campbell would immediately counter with No, thats bad! and tell the new result, and so on.Hee HawIn 1969 Campbell joined Hee Haw on CBS-TV as a chief writer and on-air talent. His regular characterizations included the Barber, in which he performed his Spoonerism stories and his Thats Bad/Thats Good routines, the Doctor as Doctor Campbell with Gunilla Hutton as Nurse Goodbody, and, Justus OPeace, his version of the classic Judge routine of Pigmeat Markham. One of his most well-known segments was the Where Oh Where song (PFFT! You Was Gone) in which he would perform a short verse of original comedy followed by the standard Where oh where are you tonight chorus which would conclude with him and a singing partner, often Gordie Tapp, blowing a raspberry at one another or at the camera.During his Hee Haw years Campbell also recorded several comedy-music albums such as Bull Session at Bulls Creek with Junior Samples and Archie Campbell (Elektra 1976). He frequently performed duets with singer Lorene Mann.Later life and deathIn 1984, Campbell hosted TNNs Yesteryear interview show. Campbell was an accomplished amateur golfer and built one of the earliest lighted golf courses in the United States. An avid painter, he also owned an art gallery and served on the school board in Knoxville, where he lived until he suffered a fatal heart attack in 1987. He is buried near the town of Powell, Tennessee.
