The Goodies are a trio of British comedians (Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie), who created, wrote, and starred in a surreal British television comedy series called The Goodies during the 1970s and early 1980s combining sketches and situation comedy.
Long running British situation comedy with the vaguest of situations. The Goodies are a three man agency whose brief is to do 'anything, anytime'. This gave the series carte blanche to do whatsoever it pleased, with a cartoon-like surrealism and a heavy reliance on slapstick. Ran for ten years on BBC TV before removing for one final series to the commercial channel London Weekend Television.
A collection of the classic 70's comedy series The Goodies. This 2 disc collection features 8 digitally restored episodes including: Tower of London, Kitten Kong, The Goodies and the Beanstalk, Kung Fu Capers, Lighthouse Keeping Loonies, Earthanasia, Saturday Night Grease and spans their 10 years at the BBC.

Synopsis: Disc 1
Tower Of London (Original BBC transmission 08 November 1970)
The Goodies' first assignment is to find out who is stealing the Beefeaters' beef - and more importantly, why? To steal the crown jewels is the answer, but when the last person they'd suspect.
Gender Education (Original BBC transmission 31 December1971)
Mrs. Desiree Carthorse asks the Goodies to produce a "Gender Education Film", but dismisses it as too rude with-out even watching it (her usual practice). Bill rebels against the sheer niceness of it all and begins producing video nasties for the BBC - until he blows up for the BBC Television Centre.
Kitten Kong (Original BBC transmission 09 April 1972)
The Goodies are running a veterinary clinic, and Graeme develops a super pet food to boost the animals' health - and the size of a hitherto harmless fluffy little kitten.
Goodies And Beanstalk (Original BBC transmission 24 December 1973)
Cricklewood, 1973: Poverty stricken, the Goodies sell their tandem for a tin of beans - which, when planted, grows into a giant beanstalk leading up Mt Everest to the giant's castle where golden eggs are laid. But before the Goodies can become rich, they must battle with the giant.
