I bought this 2 DVD set of the BBC TV series for my daughter (11) after she watched 'The Goodie years' documentary on TV recently and seemed to like the humour. She is very very taken with the eight 30 minute episodes here on the two DVDs (Tower of London, Kitten Kong, Gender Education, Kung Fu Capers, Lighthouse Keeping Loonies, Earthanasia, Saturday Night Grease, The Goodies and the Beanstalk). I told her that around a hundred Goodies episodes were actually made. Her comment after viewing the few here throughout the weekend was 'Why don't they release all the episodes on DVD, anyone would be stupid not to buy them'. She likens The Goodies to the single 'Monkees' DVD she has that she also likes (The Monkees - our favourite episodes).
So we have now ordered 'The Goodies - a second helping' (another 2 DVD set). As I write my son (10) is now sitting down with her in her bedroom laughing at the Goodies antics.Read more ›
KITTEN KONG--Our heroes become vets and Graeme, with the aid of his special growth formula, unwittingly turns a fuffy little kitty into...well, the title sort of gives it away, dunnit? One of the most popular Goodies eps, though this was my first time to see it.
SCATTY SAFARI...A sad chain of events leaves the boys without a main attraction for their Star Safari Park. A trek to the Australian outback is planned and its so long Tony Blackburn, g'day Rolf Harris!
SCOUTRAGEOUS...Tim becomes a scoutmaster and his roomies retaliate through vicious, conniving means after being drummed out of his troop for stealing Margaret Thatcher's bloomers for a badge that doesn't exist. Honestly.
The only extras you get are some slightly sloppy bio and filmography pages. Also, the first few minutes of "Kitten Kong" suffer from a poor transfer, and the overall program appears little more than of an SP-speed VHS quality.
Maybe the list price seems a bit steep for a release of this caliber (even the outer packaging looks limited-budget), but I had just about given up on ever having Tim, Graeme and Bill in my DVD archive, so the flaws are quite forgivable. I hope it sells well enough to encourage Wham! USA (young guns, havin' some fun) to produce additional volumes. I'd love to see "Hospital for Hire" and "The Stone Age" again, if suggestions are being taken.

If you like old "B" comedy you should get this as well. I think I will sell mine so someone else can have as much fun with it that I have hadPublished on February 7, 2014 by funguy
I remember watching the Goodies when I was about 14 years old. I remember laughing my head off watching these guys. Somehow, it seemed funnier back then.Published on December 22, 2013 by Robert A. Vondruska

I used to watch this show and while these 3 episodes are ok, I would not have picked them as the best.Published on October 15, 2011 by Wayne Foley
