Tim Brooke-Taylor: Well, we can hardly afford to feed ourselves, and you start giving four-course meals to flaming guinea pigs!

Mind out for the litter tray!
3 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

Even though it's not a particular favourite of mine, this is undoubtedly one of the best remembered episodes of The Goodies, the one with the iconic image of a giant white kitten climbing up the Post Office tower. The show starts with Bill feeding a sickly guinea pig a four course meal, giving the lads the idea of opening a veterinary clinic for crazy animals. The guys go out on their bike to collect a variety of patients, shoving them all into one huge basket (which naturally causes chaos).

Back at their pad, the trio tend to the animals, including a depressed mongoose, a needy bush baby (which provides a hilarious repeat sight-gag), and a vampire bat—all of which is extremely silly stuff. The rest of the show centres around a fluffy kitten named Twinkle who grows to a massive size and terrorises London after Graeme feeds it a special growth formula. These are the scenes that people seem to remember the most, but as far as I'm concerned, they really aren't as funny as the stuff that precedes them—merely an excuse for the BBC's special effects department to have some fun (sadly, their efforts look terribly cheap by today's standards).
