Are our beloved Goodies really so good? Or are they a public menace? All four of our hosts look at the Goodies' adventures through a prism of half-baked ethics philosophy to find out...
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!

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.
