The Goodies investigate Bigfoot.

This is for you rdeckard! Right at the tail-end of their careers, The Goodies (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Goodies) made an ill advised transfer to ITV. The result was one series and a few good moments, other than that, they’d run their course.

      I watched the “GOODIES” and “Monty Python”; using a UHF antenna in the late 70s
      Good memories…
      Thanks Red for bringing them to mind.

      My pleasure. The title sequence (and theme tune) is one of the most joyous things ever created. They were contemporaries of The Pythons, but where The Pythons were cerebrally silly, The Goodies were just silly. Their main inspirations were Warner Brothers cartoons, particularly Chuck Jones’ Road Runner and silent slapstick. They don’t get repeated because they’re pretty politically incorrect, although personally I love one of their most infamous episodes, which gleefully demolishes the whole concept of The Black And White Minstrel Show, which unbelievably was still on BBC tv until the late seventies.

      If you liked the Goodies another thing to catch is the radio show “I’m Sorry, I’ll Read that Again” which came before the Goodies.

      Even now ISIRTA is a fantastic listen if you can find it.
      You’d get the occasional Bill Oddie song in the Goodies, you get one almost every episode of ISIRTA.

      WARNING. This episode actually killed a man. He literally died laughing at it. His widow wrote to The Goodies to thank them for making his final moments so happy. ADDITIONAL WARNING. Contains blacking up, making fun of the Northern English and probably yellow face. (I haven’t watched it for a while) I firmly believe The Goodies were not racist in themselves, but in their universe, anyone and anything was fair game. You could make a case that they were actually satirizing racism itself because their depiction of white men impersonating other races was so deliberately ludicrous. Graeme Garden, a Scotsman by birth, was perfectly comfortable playing with stereotypes about Scots. Meanness. Tartan. Hatred for The English. It goes on and on….

      ANOTHER WARNING. The following show contains extracts of Rolf Harris and Tony Blackburn, which may trigger an allergic reaction. To balance things out, we have John Cleese.
