Format: VHS Tape
There were not many "Goon Show" films made, and of these I think only this and "Down among the Z men" are available. "The Case of the Mukkinese Battle Horn" has it all; Eccles, Crun, Gritpype-Thynne...well, not all, since Harry Secombe aka Ned Seagoon aka "everygoon" isn't in this film. The humour of the goon show that would later float again to the surface in Spike's "Q" series and Python pervades this movie like mould in a Gorgonzola cheese or fungus in a plaster wall...it's everywhere. From the opening scenes of the theft (brick goes through display case / hand reaches in/ takes ~ brick!/ brick returned to case and Horn now swiped / continue action!) to the final plot twist "Give him a copper coin Brown!" and the "zany" credits (Freda Clench underwater soprano) this film will grab your sense of humour and batter it to death before stabbing it with a pointy stick.
It has one of my favourite lines - Sellers says to Emery "You're trying to be funny Sir!" and Emery replies (to camera!)"Aren't we all!"
This film is as corny as hell and you'll never see it in a cinema again. Get it whichever way you can, but don't steal mine I have Bluebottle guarding it.
Now if Only we could get this on DVD...with "Super Secret Service" and the "Running Jumping & Standing Still Film"....!?!

Classic Sellers & Milligan, but video quality not very good 3 July 2008
By Brian N. Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
A classic piece of "Goon Show"-style insanity. Especially interesting because the bumbling detective played by Sellers seems a clear forerunner to Inspector Clouseau, down to the trench coat and hat (though without the French accent here). Also watch for (or rather listen for) what I'm pretty sure is Sellers doing the narration in the beginning in a very funny American accent.

One warning - the video quality is not very good, which I don't think is the fault of the transfer but probably the state of the original film by the time it was put on tape. Bright areas in particular seem to be often washed out in white. Not too much of a problem, really, though there is one scene where Sellers' character is communicating with a silent film actor by writing on a piece of paper and holding it up and it's very hard to make out what he's written.
