Snooze

Spread the love

The Goodies are all asleep…

The alarm clock rings.

Graeme then makes a cup of tea.

Graeme then tends to his breakfast,

and pulls out a hens nest from his bed side cabinet.

Tucks into his egg while looking at the paper.

There’s a knock at the door and it’s Mr Rupert Wynde-Cheater ,

Marketing Executive of Beechrow Products.

The Goodies are busy working on the advertising.

Which works in an instant

Then Rupert follow suit. 

While Graeme works on the antidote.  Tim goes after Bill.

Tries the Trandem.

Then on to a bridge.

Crosses a river by going into it.

Then crosses a mine field on the beach.

Which triggers some mechanics.

Turns the radio on and also has a shave.

Cooks an egg with the help of a fishing rod.

Pulls down a chandelier to which stores his condiments of salt and pepper.

And he want’s the Goodies to come up with

a new name for their bedtime drink Venom.

Graeme shows his adverts to Bill and Tim.

Graeme and Tim arrive at Beechrow Products.

To report on their new improved Snooze.

They head back to the office.

Then the Goodies van.

Helps  lady out with her wool.

And comes out the other side.

Goes into a mock ad break.

To help stir Graeme.

But Tony Blackburn is on so that signals an automated mallet. 

While the egg boils, he collects his morning paper.

Then it’s time to get dressed.

They think of several ideas including ‘sleepy bo bo’s’. (from Graeme.)

Which disgusts Bill and Tim. 

And eventually they all agree to the name of ‘Snoooooze’ 

Graeme has also been working on a new formula for Snooze

and uses Bill as a guinea pig

The excutives start to fall asleep.

Bill starts sleep walking.

Bill journey continues on top of  a bus. 

Catches a football in a park.

Bill heads to the sea.

The Mock Ads

Snooze ad 1

Snooze ad 2

And pushes over a large tree.

Tim finally catches up with Bill, but Graeme has also arrived.

Tries to start the car with some difficulty

And gives some to Bill and Graeme.

Which works. But also energises people too.

Tim continues his hunt for Bill.

Graeme tests his Antidote and takes a sip of Snooze.

But ends up being knocked out.

And escorts both back towards home.

Then makes use of the situation. 

Satisfied that the antidote works. 

They make a barrel full and take it to the reservoir.

Rupert storms into the Goodies office.

Having handed all their stock of Snooze over for nothing. 

While Bill is located in a forest.

And follows Bill’s path

Parks Bill and Graeme for a minute while he gets into the van.

When Tim gets back to the office, he immediately pours out the antidote.

Graeme puts a teaspoon full into the water. 

The barrel then falls into the reservoir.

Pulls out a gun.

The Goodies get ready and takes some of the antidote.

And sets off down the street.
