Storyline

All over Britain, musicians are being kidnapped - sometimes in the middle of live performances. Distraught at the sudden absence of culture, the music-loving Goodies decide to get to the bottom of the situation by becoming world-famous musicians themselves, so that they will get kidnapped and taken to the heart of the mystery. But the Goodies get more than they bargained for, and in the end, only some quick thinking can save them from a fate worse than death; getting locked in a cell with Rolf Harris! Written by Camel13

"You're a looney!". "Thank you!"
29 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The Goodies are watching a live concert in Hyde Park when sinister Mafia-types make off with the orchestra. Everywhere, musicians are mysteriously vanishing. The Goodies give a free show on Hackney Marshes. No-one turns up to hear them play, but someone makes off with their lorry - with them inside.

Our heroes are taken to the country home of one M.J. Coggleton, also known as 'The Music Master'. The villain has stolen the world's musicians so that people will have to pay him if they want to hear them again. He wants the Goodies to make a record - if they refuse, they will be forced to face the ultimate punishment - namely, be locked in a cell with Rolf Harris...

One of my all-time favourite 'Goodies' episodes. With his slicked-back hair, Dracula-style cloak and mobile, rocket-firing Hammond organ, The Music Master is the nearest the show got to one of those eccentric super-villains so typical of the 'Batman' television series. The late Henry McGee is best remembered for his work on 'The Benny Hill Show'. Its a pity this episode wasn't shown as a tribute to him earlier this year. Full of great gags, including a couple at the expense of Cilla Black's singing. She couldn't have been offended, because she contributed to the final scene.

Funniest moment - the final battle between the Goodies and the Music Master, where a euphonium is used as a cannon!
