The Goodies was written by and starred Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie and was an instant success with its mixture of outrageous humour and visual effects. The characters were instantly recognisable stereotypes: Tim, the champion of everything British, Bill the bearded hippie in his rebel combat jacket and Graeme, the mad scientist dreaming up new and impossible schemes.
