Description

Goon but not forgotten. From 1951 to 1960 the Goons ruled the airwaves, the most celebrated and influential clowns in the history of radio. Join Inspector Seagoon in the amazing hunt for a missing piece of string or journey with nude Ned the Piano Dancer on the trail of sennapod smugglers in South America. But keep your knees covered in case of the Spon Plague and don't climb a mountain when mountain-eater Eccles (or Leonardo da Vinci) is around. Yes folks, it's another crazy quartet of cult comedy classics - The String Robberies, The White Neddie Trade, The Spon Plague and The Mountain Eaters. The wide and wonderful world of Goonery knows no bounds. GO ON - spoil yourself. 2 CDs. 2 hrs 1 min.
