The Goodies Turn 40


It’s been 40 years since the first season of the Goodies premiered in the UK… and aren’t we glad it did!

Thought it was worth pulling out an old photo I took of them in 2005 when they were doing a tour.

So, do you have a favourite Goodies moment? Mine is the episode where they discover the T Rex in their basement 🙂

    I love the Goodies, and I remember this tour also, it was great. I love singing the theme song, and remember not being allowed to watch “that” episode about babies.

    I like the Kitten Kong episode. But then it’s been so long since I saw I was a kid that the whole thing kind of blends into one big, slightly naughty, slightly funky, and very amusing childhood memory-blob. Some of my memory of it might even be Monkey, now that I think about it…

    Great photo – surprised that Tim & Bill still look pretty much the same…

    My favorite goodies moment is probably the Western where they were looking for nuggets (scones) and there were rivers of strawberry jam and cream – they had guns shaped like saucebottles shooting jam at each other….

    Great pic! I love the Goodies, my favourite episode is Kitten Kong and the Gibbon one was cool too. Can’t believe you got to meet them, the closest I came is going to high school with Tim Brooke-Taylors nephew!

    I loved the episode where The Goodies enter the Le Mans race.

    Graeme demonstrates the features on their new car. “Turning Left” (a rubber hand swings out the left side), “Turning Right” (hand out the right side). “Turning nasty” (hand swings up from on top of the bonnet to give the two fingered salute).
