If you've not seen it its a bit like the Young Ones only 70s. You can get the first DVD set for less then a tenner in HMV now and its well worth getting if you've got the money to spend. Its got the Reece Shearsmith seal of approval as well (On I love the 70s)

see there is no excuse now ... Reece is a self-confessed Goodies fan cos he said on the Soundtrack to my life when he picked "The Funky Gibbon" as one of his songs. And his favourite Goodie is also mine - Dr graham Garden who, back in the day, i find strangely attractive even though i cannot explain why. Must be the sideburns

i am a bit skint at the moment but i intend to get it ...

I used to love it when I was little. And I fancied Graeme too.
The huge kitten scared me a bit though, like the cute killer bunny in one of the monty python films. it's a wonder I'm not phobic of fluffy animals.

I thought the exact opposite. Used to think Python was tory crap. Mainly because I'd never seen it. I've come to love it though. Its certainly a better programme in every way. But the two groups are from the same stable of people anyway. And its not like football where you have to choose. I can't understand how you can hate Bill Oddie though. Its like hating clouds.

Bill Oddie had a kids show but it was only on in one ITV region. Perhaps they were on Swap Shop or Crackerjack or summat together.

One google later;

More than one region. Having googled I've just found out that the Goodies are massive in Australia. I bet the Canadians watched them as well. There's a few jokes nicked from them in Austin Powers.

Goodies and the Beanstalk was on a Christmas.It wasn't as funny as I remembered. Infact I didn't laugh at all. I remember it being hilarous at the time!

I thought that. I think they aimed that one particularly at kids though.
