Book Description

About the Author

Spike Milligan was perhaps best known as one of the Goons. He went on to become one of Britain's foremost comic writers and performers. His bestselling titles include Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall, Puckoon and Where have all the Bullets Gone? He died in 2002. Larry Stephens was a scriptwriter who wrote for several popular comedy shows in the 1950s, including The Tony Hancock Show and The Army Game. He is probably best known as co-writer of many Goon Show episodes, along with Spike Milligan. He died in 1959.

Another delightful collection of Goon Show "talking-type wireless" episodes. Two of the four in this collection stand out. "Shangri-la Again" is a take-off on 'Lost Horizon' (or as the Goons put it, "Lost Horizontally"). My favorite is the ghostly tale of "The Spectre of Tintagel", featuring King Arthur Seagoon (his parents were illiterate, but they did have a round table). Great fun and I recommend this to fans everywhere.

What praise hasn't been said about the Goons ? I can't do justice to them in this space, but the shows are good only in the way the Goon Shows can be.
The jacket notes could be better though, and I think that at least one of the shows has appeared on another tape/cd somewhere ....
Still liked it though !

What is it about The Goons that stands the test of time? Is it their characters and voices? How about the script? Maybe it's the storyline? Then it could be the simplicity of it all?

Not any one of these but all of them, plus an amazing connection between the three 'goons' themselves. Spike with his script and lunacy (in a nice way), Sellers with his constant laughing and asides and of course Neddy Seagoon as the 'hero', all gel together like a wonderful chemical reaction. The four episodes are such fun and can be listened to again and again - great on a long journey in the car.

From the very first time I heard The Goons on the radio I was hooked, I just couldn't get enough. Like so many others, I would talk to my friends in Bluebottle or Eccles speak and all who heard knew exactly what we were doing. The Goons is more an institution than just a comedy series.

If you like daft, then The Goons is most definitely for you.

Brilliant.

Bought as a present for my Dad, I thought I'd made a big mistake as he laughed so hard I thought he was going to choke. He was still tittering hours later. As a child I remember the Goons being played on the radio and wondering what my Dad and elder brother found so hilarious. As I got older and could appreciate the humour I realised how unique they were/are. Auguably, they laid the foundations for such comic shows such as Monty Python, etc. The world would have been a duller place without them.

To be honest you have to have grown up listening to the goons on the radio or you maybe have to be slightly mad if you find them and enjoy the crazy humour but they are well worth a listen
