New Lego Goodies Idea!

New Lego Goodies Idea!

This idea for a Lego Goodies set was found on Lego’s website ‘Lego Ideas’ where people can submit their own ideas for new lego kits. To be produced and made available in their shops etc.

The project was created by Goodies Fan Sapphire Sundae in July 2019.

This is the description for the idea…. 

The Goodies was a British comedy TV series that ran from 1970 to 1982 with 9 series and 76 episodes. The show follows three men, Tim, Bill and Graeme who do “anything anytime”. This business led to whaky hijinks ranging from a pirate radio station (S1 E7 Radio Goodies), to a tomato sauce battle in the west (S5 E2 Bunfight at the O.K. Tearooms), to the ancient Lancastrian martial art of Ecky Thump (S5 E7 Kung Fu Kapers).

I propose a Lego set of their iconic Office that served as their base of operations from The New Office (S3 E1) onwards. The set would consist of the Office, the pirate radio station The Saucy Gibbon, a bean bag and punching bag for “Bill’s Bit” along with 21 minifigures , outlining the outlandish and iconic outfits that the trio wear throughout the show. These would include:

  • Classic outfits (Various)
  • Advertising Men/String Vest (S6 E5 It Might as Well be String)
  • Western (S5 E12 Bunfight at the O.K. Tearooms)
  • Cowboy/Black and White/Sampson (S5 E1 The Movies)
  • Lighthouse Keepers (S5 E8 Lighthouse Keeping Loonies)
  • Masked Scouts (S7 E3 Scoutrageous) and Disco (S8 E2 Saturday Night Grease)
  • Captain Graeme (S1 E7 Radio Goodies), Ecky Thump (S5 E7 Kung Fu Kapers) and Maid (S1 E6 Cecily)
  • Extra heads and hairs/hats for Clown variants, with a can of tomato soup (S5 E2 Clown Virus)

The Office (an abandoned train station) would have a removable roof, allowing for the office to open up. The inside consists of “Chez Tim” on one side and “Graeme’s Den” on the other. “Bill’s Bit” would consist of a bean bag and Tony Blackburn punching bag to put in the middle, also including Tim’s gramophone. It would also include theSaucy Gibbon, the pirate radio station disguised as a boat.

NOTE: The set could also include their iconic trandem, though I could not include it, as new pieces are not permitted.

Unfortunately, this project has expired.  But, according to the ‘Official Lego Comment’ on the page, this idea could be resubmitted.  And you can still leave feedback ( via the private feedback section). 

So, if you want a lego Goodies set for next Christmas, head to this link to show your interest for it….

 The Goodies 50th Anniversary Poll – Slapstick 2020

From www.slapstick.org.uk 

Those of you who are able to, cast your minds back to the evening of the 8th of November 1970. What were you doing that night? Were you perhaps huddled round a (probably) black and white television screen eagerly anticipating the first episode of what was to become a hugely popular and groundbreaking comedy series called The Goodies? We like to think probably so!

The Goodies was ultimately so successful it ran to nine magnificent series, clocking up an impressive 77 episodes of anarchic, hilarious, innovative, disruptive, occasionally quite puzzling and always brilliant comedy in the process.

And on the occasion of the year of the 50th anniversary of The Goodies we’ve decided it’s time for you, fans of Slapstick and The Goodies, to definitively help us decide which is the greatest episode of all time is!

To make this happy chore a little easier for you we’ve gone through all 77 episodes (a thankless task but someone had to do it!) with the help of The Goodies themselves and a few of our celebrity friends and have narrowed all the episodes down to what we think are the best ten.

When the results of our poll are in the episode earning the most votes will be screened at Slapstick’s 50th Anniversary of The Goodies event in Bristol on January 25th, in the company of the dashing trio themselves; Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, and Bill Oddie.

“Sounds like a great idea, how do we vote?” you ask?

Well, it couldn’t be easier. All you need do is click this link and head to our official poll form. You then just scroll down the list of episodes, click on the one you feel deserves to be chosen as “The Greatest Goodies Episode Of All Time”, carry on down to the foot of the page and click “submit”. It’s as easy as that!

Happy voting!
