The Goodies(1970 - 1982)
This long-running surreal British comedy was in many ways, more like The Monkees, than the more famous Monty Python. It followed the silly and absurd, cartoon-like adventures of a wacky trio called the Goodies, whose motto was to do "Anything, Anytime, Anywhere" and they tried to do just that, (but usually wound up getting into all kinds of trouble!) The threesome consisted of blonde, feeble-minded and nervous English patriot, Tim; mad scientist, inventor, and Isaac Asimov look-alike, Graeme; and short, scraggly, fun-loving, Bill! It started on BBC 1 in 1970, but after a abrupt cancellation in 1980, they move to London Weekend Television. Despite the show was good to be in LWT, it only did six episodes and a Christmas Special.
