"Yakety Sax" is a 1961 45 rpm single record by saxophonist Boots Randolph.


The recording has achieved popularity as the soundtrack to filmed comedy. It is probably best known for its frequent use the sketch comedy program, The Benny Hill Show, to accompany otherwise silent, rapidly paced comedy bits (frequently involving a chase scene).

Yeah, the Yakety Sax was the actual theme song for the Benny Hill Show. This article was a little bit misleading. That's a cool song. Haha. Never knew it had an actual name. I just knew it as the Benny Hill theme song.
