The Goodies

The Goodies are summoned to an American Guided Missile Base by Major Charles M. Cheeseburger, who wants them to dispose of a giant canister of “harmless Tomato Soup". After their attempts to dump the soup into the sea fail dismally, Tim, Graeme and Bill decide to drink it instead – but then Graeme gets the inspired idea of selling the revolting soup to motorway service stations across the country. However, the Goodies soon discover that the soup is actually a secret U.S. germ warfare weapon that turns anyone who drinks it into a clown; and with Tim, Graeme, Bill and the entire British population now transformed into ridiculous-looking buffoons, the country is now wide open for an invasion by Major Cheeseburger and his troops…
