Blackadder is perhaps the funniest and most intelligently written British comedy series of all time. The conniving Blackadder with his hapless partner in crime Baldrick have kept people entertained for years. With only four series consisting of six episodes each, Blackadder left it’s mark. Here is a collection of the best funny Blackadder memes.
Funny Blackadder Memes
Four different series of Blackadder were created in the 80s, along with a number of specials. Each series was set in a new era, starting from the medieval period, and ending up in the First World War.

Still, it’s from Series 2 onward that things really get going!
