Tonight, a very welcome respite from all the shocks and frights we’ve seen recently. We enjoyed another classic episode of The Goodies from 1975. In this one, our heroes mine for gold, but go all Treasure of the Sierra Madre over a vein of Cornish cream, strike it rich with geysers of strawberry jam, and argue over the pronunciation of “scone.” They could have become Cornish milk sheikhs (groan), but jealousy leads them to a tomato-soaked shootout with ketchup squirters in the mean streets of Pennenink.
If any child has ever laughed so long and so hard, it would be news to me. This is pretty perfect television for kids of all ages.
