The Goodies Return ... sort of,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ultimate Bananaman [DVD] (DVD)
Bananaman originally appeared in a british comic called "Nutty" way back in 1980, drawn by the late John Geering, continuing to appear in that comic's pages until it's demise. The strip also appeared in The Dandy, and now is being reprinted in the current Beano.
Essentially a parody of Superman, with plenty of slapstick, and a huge dose of good old British eccentricity, our hero Eric battles with his evil arch-nemesis General Blight, the Nerks (an alien race hell bent on conquering earth).
The TV series (presented here in its entire 40 episode, 3 series fullness) features the voices of the Goodies (Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden (sometimes mistaken credited as Greame Garden - see if you can spot them) and Tim Brooke-Taylor), their characterisation surely bringing a welcome (Eric) Twinge of nostalgia to any 40-something UK person.
As a bonus, our young kids love it too, with each episode being a mere 5 minutes long it is ideal to sit down to a bowl of cereals and munch away as a family to the splurts of laughter.
THOROUGHLY RECOMMENDED FUN FOR ALL THE FAMILY.
