The Goodies Logo 'Snooze'

with Tim Brooke-Taylor
The Goodies

The Goodies are visited by marketing director Rupert Windcheater, who asks for their help selling a bedtime drink called ‘Venom’. Tim, Bill and Graeme propose changing the product’s name, and after considering ‘Rolf Harris’ (well, he sends Bill to sleep) and ‘Sleepybobos’, they settle on ‘Snooze’. Their campaign works, and to Rupert’s delight sales of ‘Snooze’ treble. Then Graeme unveils ‘Phase 2’: ‘New Improved Snooze’, which is so effective that it knocks out Bill in seconds and sends him on a cross-country sleepwalk. Rupert and his board of directors are overjoyed, and they give instructions to flood the market – but their plan is too successful, and it isn’t long before everyone in the entire country is fast asleep…
