The Benny Hill Show Wikia


Sammy and Milton are two British Jewish gentlemen who are friends constantly running into each other on the streets of their city (likely Little Dimpton). Not much is known about them. Milton seems to be always asking for money from Sammy, who being very frugal has verious methods in how to avoiding giving it to him. Among these tricks are pretending to lose him over the phone and feigning deafness. Once when their conversation became too overwhelming, the phone operator (Anna Dawson) broke in to let Sammy know she could hear Milton just fine. At that point, Sammy tells her to loan him the $50.


  • Sammy and Milton were played by Benny Hill and Bob Todd.
  • In the 1988 sketch, Milton wants $50. In 1989, he wants $5, briefly trying to change it to $10.
