The Goodies

Tim, Bill and Graeme’s efforts to collect money for charity fail dismally, until they meet the Managing Director of Sparklipegs toothpaste. Seeing an opportunity to get lots of free publicity, Mr Sparklipegs agrees to sponsor Tim, Graeme and Bill on a London to Brighton walk, but on the condition that they wear giant toothpaste costumes and bounce on spacehoppers – thereby hampering their progress so that the tight-fisted M.D. won’t have to pay out too much. However, Mr Sparklipegs is dismayed to learn that bouncing is the Goodies’ hobby, and so he orders his lackey, Mr Minion, to sabotage the trio’s progress. But to Mr Sparklipegs’ dismay the Goodies prove to be unstoppable: on reaching Brighton they keep on going, and continue to bounce all around the world…
