Throughout the 70s and 80s they entertained British and Australian audiences alike with off-the-wall skits and their three-seater bicycle called the trandem.

Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, and Bill Oddie wrote and performed in the surrealist, Monty-Python-esque sketches, and in fact the trio was friends with the Python crew, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, and Eric Idle.

The Goodies ran for ten years with 69 episodes. It was one of the first shows in the UK to use stop-motion techniques in a live action format.
