Did You Know?


Tim Brooke-Taylor: [nervously] What if the monster attacks us? What about self defense just in case... just in case it might attack us?
Tourism Agent: Ah! That's a very good point, 'cause Nessie's a fearsome beastie when she's roused. But if she does attack you, just frighten her away. Mind you, it's no good shouting out "Boo!" because she's stone deaf.
Tim Brooke-Taylor: How do we frighten her away, then?
Tourism Agent: [Holds up sign that says "BOO!"] You show her this!

"Monsters don't exist!"
1 December 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The Goodies save a man who is about to throw himself off a bridge. He is the keeper of the Monster House at the London Zoo, and is depressed because he doesn't have a monster to exhibit. So the Goodies set off for Scotland to capture the Loch Ness Monster...

An enjoyably daft start to the second season. Scotland as seen here is a land of tartan kilts, bagpipe spiders, Andy Stewart, haggis hunting, road signs that say 'Och Aye The Noo' and sporrans that drink milk and make mewling noises. In other words, one that has only existed in the fevered imaginations of comedy writers. ( Wales would come in for a similar ribbing in Season Five ).

Stanley Baxter was under contract to the B.B.C. when he made this, but his performance is so close to John Laurie's you wonder why they didn't hire the real one. 'Carry On' star Bernard Bresslaw appears as the zoo keeper.

Funniest moment - the Goodies towing the Loch Ness Monster back to London!
