A show about sleeping that will keep you awake
24 July 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

"Snooze" is the very first truly excellent Goodies episode, one of the ten best, and it was only the second episode! Sadly, it wasn't included on the DVDs.

Rupert Windcheater (Roddy Maude-Roxby) is the guest star and initiator of the plot. He is a marvelously annoying "professional man", adding a lot to the show.

The show is (like many Goodies shows) a mix of dialog and slapstick. The slapstick scenes are generally more funny than silly. It also sports mock ads both in the story and in the middle, being second only to "It might as well be string" in mocking advertising.

The opening, with Graeme's morning routine, is particularly excellent. The "speedy" ending is relatively weak, too primitive tricks to be really funny, but still works.
