The Goodies - A Binge Of Goodies
In 1970, The Goodies unleashed their legendary blend of surreal storylines, strikingly topical satire, slapstick and general lunacy on an unsuspecting viewing public. Capturing the irreverent and rebellious flavour of the decade, this phenomenally popular, award-winning series spread its mischief over twelve years, making household names of creators, writers and performers Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor.
For the first time ever, Network is incredibly proud to present the complete run of episodes and specials made for the BBC (apart from that pesky original version of Kitten Kong, which is still missing) in this 12-disc set:
All eight BBC series
- Kitten Kong - Montreux '72
- A Collection of Goodies
- Goodies Travelling Instant Five Minute Christmas
- The Goodies and the Beanstalk
- The Goodies Rule - O.K.?
From a giant white fluffy kitten called Twinkle to a slippery climb up a giant beanstalk, from the ancient Lancastrian art of 'Ecky Thump to fighting a ban on fun instigated by an all-too-real puppet government, this is television comedy at its undeniable best!
And in this deluxe, limited and highly desirable Binge Of Goodies, alongside the twelve-disc set you will get a goody bag (boom boom!) which includes the following:
An Audience with The Goodies: recorded in June 2018 at the Leicester Square Theatre, this very special one-night-only event saw Tim, Bill and Graeme reunite on stage to talk about their career and the enduring popularity of the series.
The Goodies DVD File: an overview of Graeme, Bill and Tim's careers, beginning at Cambridge and working through to the post-Goodies era, bringing the story right up to date. Written by archive television historian Andrew Pixley, 350pp, paperback.
The Goodies Book of Criminal Recordings: an episode-by-episode analysis of the entire Goodies output, including their ITV series and an index covering commercial recordings and other endeavours. Also by Andrew Pixley, 500pp, paperback.
The Cricklewood Tapes: a three-CD set of original session recordings made for the series - including music, adverts and stings.
This set is a LIMITED EDITION run of 1,000 units - and the first 500 ordered will include a special certificate signed by all three Goodies.
First released: Monday 24th September 2018
If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
