Not so much a "baby boom", more "baby ka-boom!!"
7 April 2006 | by (Napier, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

One of my earlier TV memories as a child of the '80s was this quirky episode from "The Goodies" series.

It wasn't so much a baby boom, more like baby ka-boom!!

Along with the usual goof-ball antics, the scenes with the pram tanks and baby bottle grenades sending the goodies scurrying were a highlight.

The Goodies being chased through parkland by dozens of old, self-propelled, prams firing at them is one of those things that still stir a chuckle now, some 20+ years after originally seeing it.

The Baby-bottle grenades were a nice touch too. A lactose take on the "potato-masher" grenade of World War Two perhaps?
