In what is the 161st episode of The Goon Show, Neddie Seagoon finds himself low on cash, partly due to Grytpype-Thynne and Count Moriarty stealing his £100 "war gratuity" by lagging his legs, and Bluebottle blackmailing him by taking photographs of his bloomers.
In order to earn more money, Seagoon travels to Blackpool to make cash by doing his old stage act - the shaving routine. In doing so he mets up with the other characters, Henry Crun, Minnie Bannister, Major Bloodnok, Eccles and Little Jim, and finds himself doing more Goon Show episodes.
