The Goodies

The Goodies’ plan to start a commercial radio station hits a snag when their application for a licence is rejected for missing the deadline – all because the Post Office took two months to deliver their form. Tim, Bill and Graeme decide to retaliate by starting a pirate radio station and a pirate post office, operating from a submarine situated outside the U.K.’s five-mile limit. One week later, and ‘Radio Goodies’ is on air – unfortunately with just one record, ‘A Walk in the Black Forest’. Then Bill and Tim don pillar-box costumes for ‘Goodiepost’, collecting mail and sending it out to sea for Graeme to sort; the service is a success, and the Goodies soon find themselves inundated with mail. But then the power goes to Graeme’s head and he goes loony, forcing Tim and Bill to mutiny…

Spoof Advertisements: ‘Goodies Plastic Spacemen’ (with free cornflake), and ‘The Goodies Fingertip Test’ to slim the Goodies way
