The Goodies

Tim, Bill and Graeme have a great success in ‘The Goodies Star Safari Park’, where visitors can have the unique experience of seeing nature’s wonders in the wild: ‘creatures’ such as David Frost, Tommy Cooper, Jimmy Saville, Oliver Reed, the Black and White Minstrels, and other popular celebrities. When the Goodies’ main attraction, Tony Blackburn, falls ill pining for his freedom, Tim has no choice but to release his best money-spinner back into the wild – where the DJ is promptly shot by a hunter. Needing a new star attraction, Tim, Bill and Graeme set their sights on Rolf Harris, and so set off to the Australian Outback to track him down; after successfully bagging Rolf, the trio bring him back to their Safari Park, where Graeme has the idea of mating him with another Rolf, which has been sent over from Moscow Zoo. Graeme’s plan is successful, and a year later the two Rolfs have a bouncing baby Rolf, who proves a huge hit with visitors. But then the family of Rolfs escape – they breed like wildfire, and soon the country is overrun by a plague of millions of Rolf Harrises…
