The Goodies are terminally ill and are very near the end. Their sickness first came to light when they released "A Man's Best Friend Is His Duck". They were never to recover.
Graham Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Bill Oddie have gradually wasted away deep in the vaults of the BBC. Oddie sometimes is aloud out into the garden to look at the tits, particularly in the spring. His two former colleagues are confined to their dungeon.
Recently the Goodies tried to hire a publicity advisor in the hope that this would lead to a rerun and a possible new series. Alas, it was not to be. Clax Mifford did not think that he would make enough money. And there appears to be no hope of the BBC ever repeating the ecky thump sketch.
Graham Garden said "I'm disappointed, obviously. And I'm obviously disappointed." Tim Brook-Taylor was too upset as his shoes were no longer shiny. Bill Oddie, asked what he thought, said "Look at those lovely tits."
