Slapstick Festival: Bill’s Animated Flicks With Bill Oddie

(from Slapstick Festival)

Bill Oddie has a passion for cartoons and a particular love for the more slapstick antics of Bugs Bunny, Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner, and of course Tom and Jerry. In fact, The Goodies have always cited both silent comedy and early cartoons as huge influences on their onscreen comedy. In conversation with Robin Ince, Bill shares his passion for visual comedy and reflects on his favourite moments and shorts from classic animations and his beloved cartoons.

(From Slapstick Festival and C&G 222 November 2019)

 

As fans of The Goodies will know, 2020 is a notable year

for everyone’s favourite surreal, anarchic, innovative and

always brilliant TV series, as it represents 50 years

since the show first aired on the BBC.

To mark this notable anniversary we’ve decided it’s time

to definitively end (or perhaps start!) the argument

“which is the best episode of The Goodies of all time” via

the medium of an online poll!

Slapstick Festival: At Last the 1948 Show: Almost Complete! with Tim Brooke-Taylor


(David the Snapper)

(from Slapstick Festival)

‘At Last the 1948 Show’ triggered a revolution destined to change the face of TV comedy forever. John Cleese, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Aimi MacDonald, Marty Feldman and Graham Chapman burst onto the nation’s small screens in an explosion of unrelated and often surreal sketches. It paved the way for both Month Python and The Goodies. With a new – as complete as it’s likely to ever be – three DVD/BluRay set released recently by BFI we thought a re-evaluation and a glimpse at the newly discovered footage with series star and Slapstick patron Tim Brooke-Taylor was long overdue. Tim will be in conversation with fan of the series Robin Ince. Followed by an audience Q&A and post-event DVD signing with Tim.
