It's April 1, It's time for fun,
There's people all around.
Sharing laughs, And joking parts,
It's time to be the clown.
Our Superchaps Three, The Goodies they be,
Are here to entertain us. With noses of balls,
And slapstick falls, It is the "Clown Virus."
So come one and all, For tales short and tall,
On this very April Fools Day. When Steve and Megan,
One mad, one Vegan, Watch poisoned "soup" come into play.
So this is the truth, Or is it a spoof?
It's up to you to decide. For this is podcast ninety-one,
On Fools Day April 1, The truth's between the lies!
A commentary on 'Cecily', the series 1 episode from December 1970.
Julian Chagrin, a master of visual comedy, played the role of Maxie Grease in the Goodies' special 'Superstar'. Jeffers was very excited to join Julian as he lifted the lid on a fascinating career including a Rose of Montreaux, an Oscar nomination, two successful series' and more classic commercials than you can whack with a black pudding. Best interview ever!
Rosie Oddie and Mr Hudson give Jeffers the lowdown on the new BIGkids single 'Drum in Your Chest'.
Taking time away from caring for a sick rabbit, Steve and Megan decide to visit the Commentary Couch for an episode of our Super Chaps which involves our four-legged friends. And so they turn to ANIMALS, the Series 8 episode which provides us with every-changing comedy greatness, from an animal-led economic recovery, to revolting sheep, Rabid Frost and a quick rabbit stew. It also contains the most disturbing and unsettling ending to a Goodies episode ever!

The Goodies series 9 opener 'Snow White 2' was chosen for J & J this week (thanks Steve and Megan) so they try to make the best of it, helped by news of the 2012 Slapstick event in Bristol.
Yes, Steve and Megan are back from their extended Christmas/New Year break and they're on the ball and ready for some Goodies Commentary brilliance.
Or are they?
Resorting to Plan C, they play Goodies Roulette, gambling on the chance they just might hit the jackpot.
But will they?
No matter where the ball lands,
Red or black,
You're sure to get a Commentary,
With a Goodies Sountrack!
Listen as our hosts let the fickle finger of Fate guide them to this week's Goody Good Goodies fun!
