The Goodies: The Tasty Box

Holy Smoke! Get it, get it, get it! These 16 remastered episodes are prime examples of why The Goodies ruled and in many ways still do. Their brand of humour has not been replicated by anyone in the same way since despite many attempt to do so and chances are will never be. 

Starring Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden you just know that you are in for a treat when this set comes jam packed with 6 episodes of The Goodies by the three stars of the show that really gives some fabulous insight into the series, how they felt at the time and gives you an idea of how itís all coming along today. 

The contents of this disc are what have previously been released as The Goodies Volume 1 and The Goodies Ė A Tasty Second Helping so if you already own them then you might want to rethink the process for yourself before laying out the cash. 

Itís funny as a lot of humour ages very quickly nowadays with things moving so fast in the techno age but the humour found on this disc is still just as good now as then. I didnít find at any stage something that I could no longer find hilarious due to age of jokes. Of course the guys look very silly but hey, they just look silly! 

For me, Ecky Thump says it all. This was a show that literally had me screaming with laughter all the way through, whether it was the way they said it, the actions or just everything, I donít know but I loved it!  For those who donít know what Ecky Thump is, itís a martial arts craze that involves hitting people with black pudding which looks like a long black sausage! It has to be seen to be believed. 

For you Goodies freaks out there (like me), you will be delighted to see that there are so many extras on this disc that your head will spin. Everything from scripts files to audio commentaries, to the funniest out takes I have seen in some time, this is a fans dream come true and I have watched and rewatched them several times. Here are the jam packed extras listing:

  • 16 Digitally Remastered Episodes
  • 28 page Commemorative Booklet
  • Com Dancing in colour!
  • Commentaries by Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Bill Oddie on six episodes
  • Restoration Featurette detailing the process that brought The Goodies into the 21st century!
  • The Goodies in Conversation - audio featurette
  • Original Script Files
  • Goodies Out-Takes
  • The Goodies' Travelling Instant Five-Minute Christmas
  • THe Goodies sin "A Man's Best Friend is His Duck" on Crackerjack clip
  • Gymnasium clip
  • The Goodies and the Beanstalk Storyboard and Laughter Free Track
  • Surviving Footage from The Goodies pre-curser Broaden Your Mind
     
Iíll give this title a Extremely High Recommendation. You are guaranteed over 10 hours of almost constant laughter and if that is not enough, smash your DVD player and get the hell out of our site! Everyone will love this disc and if not, ďECKY THUMP!Ē
