|'The New Office'
by Tim Brooke-Taylor,
and Graeme Garden
The Goodies are annoyed to discover that the builders they hired to redecorate their office have been on a tea break for the last six months; however, when the trio confront the workshy workmen, the builders trash the premises and then storm off. With no option but to buy a new office, Tim, Graeme and Bill pay a visit to estate agents ‘Gazump, Grasper, Meanie & Snatch’, but are promptly ripped off when Mr Snatch (who bears an uncanny resemblance to the Builder) sells them a tiny plot of land for £100,000. In desperation the Goodies decide to build their own office, and using Graeme’s designs they soon create a tailor-made base using a mobile disused railway station. Unfortunately, when the trio try to find somewhere to park their new office, they come under attack from a pack of vicious bulldozers, tractors and cranes, which have somehow come to life…
