Its The '50's Revival!
6 January 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite 'Goodies' episodes, mainly because it mocks three popular television shows of the '70's - the talent ( free ) contest 'New Faces', 'Stars On Sunday' ( yuck! ) and the pop show 'Supersonic' in which producer Mike Mansfield briefly became a youth cult figure ( his catchphrase was "Cue!" ).

Forget the plot, there isn't one. Like 'Goodies Rule O.K.' it slides from one silly situation to another. It begins with Bill struggling to compose a hit record to follow 'Funky Gibbon', much to Graeme's amusement, and ends with an all-out war between Tim's Mike Mansfield ( "Cue Hitler! Cue The Luftwaffe! ) and Bill's Ken Russell. In between there's a funny send-up of the '70's fad for 50's nostalgia. Kitten Kong and Dougal make welcome cameos, and a treat for older viewers with guest appearances from '50's B.B.C. presenters Macdonald Hobley and Mary Malcolm.

Funniest moment - the Goodies dressed as teddy boys, performing a rock and roll number. At one point, Graeme attempts to play a piano using a hammer and chisel! Despite this being the sixth series, 'The Goodies' showed no sign of running out of steam.
