Goons On TV !!!
5 December 2000 | by (Dimitris Verionis) – See all my reviews

Well, this is a piece of history-and what history! Comedy would have never been the same, if it wasn't for the Goons! These "Fred" shows, were the attempts to pass the "Goonery" on TV and the result is hilarious! Spike Milligan and Peter Sellers, along with Graham Stark, Kenneth Connor, Valentine Dyall, Max Geldray and others, join forces with Dick Lester (the famous director, who did, amongst others the "Running, Jumping, Standing Still Film" and the Beatles' "A Hard day's Night")and create sheer magic! Sight gags, lines you wouldn't...believe, anarchy and chaotic humour of gigantic proportions! It's a shame TV in these days was at its first steps and even more shame these wonderful shows aren't available on VHS or DVD yet! I must also add here that "Python's" fans would adore "A Show Called Fred", which deeply inspired "Pythons" in creating " flying Circus" many years later. These shows were made for Associated Redifusion Television".
