Goon but not forgotten! One of the most popular and influential comedy teams on radio, the Goons ruled the airwaves between 1951 and 1960. Their innovative, irreverent humour, inspired lunacy and surreal clowning set the trend for a new kind of comedy, and their legacy continues to endure today.
In these four digitally-remastered episodes, written by Spike Milligan and Larry Stephens, gas meter inspector Seagoon heads to South America over an unpaid bill; Neddie Seagoon RN, Captain of HMS Resolute, faces the Dutch fleet in 1662; Lord Seagoon makes a wager with Count Moriarty, and Ned attempts to raffle a boa constrictor, leading to big trouble in Birmingham.
