The Goodies

Learning that Bill is making good money for babysitting a malnourished guinea-pig, Graeme and Tim seize the opportunity to set up the ‘Goodies Animal Clinic’. Tim and Bill set about collecting the local residents’ loony animals, quickly amassing a mad menagerie of crazy cats, daffy dogs, giant snakes, a clingy bush baby and even a vampire bat. Taking a shine to an undersized twenty-three year-old kitten named Twinkle, Graeme decides to feed it his special growth mixture – and in just four days the pussy matures into an enormous monster. After Bill stupidly puts the cat out one night, Twinkle goes on a rampage across London, destroying everything in his path and terrifying the city’s population. As the Post Office Tower and St. Paul’s Cathedral fall under the giant kitten’s might, the Goodies realise it is up to them to find a way to catch the mighty moggy…
