The Goodies

The Goodies receive a visit from the extremely prudish Mrs Desiree Carthorse of the ‘Keep Fifth Off Television Campaign’, who wants their help in stopping the BBC from making a film for children about S-E-X, by making her own, more tasteful, version. Tim, Graeme and Bill produce a heavily-censored education film entitled "How To Make Babies By Doing Dirty Things" – but unfortunately for them, Mrs Carthorse is still shocked by the film’s rude content (even though she hasn’t actually seen any of it!) and starts legal proceedings against the them under the Obscene Publications Act. As the entire country turns against the Goodies for their so-called contemptuous actions, Bill decides to fight back by making his own film – a production of ‘Sinderella’ which incorporates lots of sex and extreme violence…
