Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie... our comedy Gods. We are honored to know their comedic brilliance through The Goodies - the slapstick, the witty cutting remarks, the perfect set ups for the well-timed falls. But who influenced them? Who were the stars of their youth that they studied as they honed their own acting skills? Who are the Comedy Gods our Superchaps Three worship? And do those Gods still pack a punch today?

In this, the first of an infrequent series, we look back at the work of Buster Keaton, the silent film comedy star from America, who both Tim and Graeme have said they were heavily influenced by. Having never seen any of his work before, both Steve and Megan sit down on the Commentary Couch to see if watching Keaton is like watching a Goodies episode, and to try to spot any Goodies parallels in these silent classics that are nearly 100 years old.

As Buster himself would say... "             "

So sit back and enjoy this extra long Goodies Podcast, and the brilliance of The Great Stone Face.

Star Wars figures, baseball cards, china pots, TARDISes, pet rocks, Avril Lavigne's home address... everyone collects something. But do you have a Collection of Goodies? Lost in time and unshown in Australia, this rare clip episode has been seen by few and discussed by fewer (unless you have the DVDs.) So, come along for the ride as Steve and Megan provide a fast-paced commentary to a fast-paced special episode...one which Steve has never even seen! Slacker! Bring your Sherbert and get ready for some slapstick highjinks, some shameless plugs, a bare-chested Bill and just try to say "Strip Scrabble" three times fast.

The fabulous 69th edition of the Goodies Podcast brings us the commentary we had to have - Gender Education. Yes, it's all about how to make a podcast by doing naughty things. To make sure there are no smutty goings on, the sheet is out and everyone is sitting the regulatory 40cm apart as we look at the wonderful Goodies version of gender education films of the 70s, with Mary Whitehouse and some leather-clad ladies.

Strap yourself in, grab a sheet (but not a lady), cover up your naughty bits and get ready for the best telling of Sinderella you're ever going to see.

Knickers!
