    The Goons thread

    As a past keen follower of the Goons who has rediscovered them, I would like people to point me to their favourite episodes, with web sites if possible.

    Some were discussed in the shoutbox tonight, e.g. "The Flea". URL?

    This thread is also for discussion related to the Goons Show.

    Ta all, in advance.

    I remember Spike Milligan,one of the forces in the Goons,saying that Monty Python was brilliant.However, he said,"It's all been done before".They did it.
    When Milligan died,Cleese said,the greatest one of us all has gone.

    My favourite goons saying ... when someone thanks you for something you say "it was nothing - a quantity I specialise in"

    Ta guys

    Ta guys. All good stuff. ABC Radio is the place to be at 5.30 am Sydney time on Friday mornings!

    Flukey, for some reason my favorite Goons saying has always been "Lift up your trousers, Neddy". In context it was just so funny!

    Still going!

    The Goons is still on Radio National at 5.30 am on Friday mornings, Sydney time. I.e., right now.
    This morning was the "What's My Line" episode. The answer (not guessed on the show) was "I am an idiot" x3.

    One would think you that you guys would be satisfied with all the goons on this board? And you need more?
