Not to be confused with ''ComicBook/TheGoon'', a comic series about a muscle-bound mob enforcer who fights monsters; nor should it be confused with any shows that happen to be made by [[Website/SomethingAwful goons]], or ''Series/TheGongShow'', or ''Film/TheGoonies''.

** ''[[ArcWords It's great to be alive in 1985!]]''



* CallBack: There were several, especially when the cast ad-libbed. A notable example was in the episode immediately following "The Mysterious Punch up the Conker", when Seagoon made a ridiculous and long-winded joke, culminating in some awful singing, and Grypype remarked "You'll get a punch up the conk for this."

** "Ying tong iddle i po" and "Needle nardle noo", all-purpose catchphrases (most often Neddie's). "It's all in the mind, you know" was also used by everyone, most commontly Grytpype-Thynne.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Cliffhanger}}: "The Affair of the Lone Banana" sends up the sort of urgently narrated cliffhanger common in shows like ''Dick Barton - Special Agent'':
-->'''Greenslade:''' Will Seagoon get out in time? \\
''[Explosion]'' \\
'''Greenslade:''' Oh, ''hard'' luck. Still, he tried.

* {{Corpsing}}: They frequently set each other off, or the studio audience did, or after they flubbed a line.

* {{Corpsing}}: They frequently set each other off, or the studio audience did, or after they flubbed a line. In "The Case of the Missing CD Plates", a running gag involving absurd sped-up cod-Eastern music and nonsense words sets off a storm of giggles that completely halts the show in its tracks for 20 seconds or so.

Added DiffLines:

* ByNoIMeanYes: In "The Spon Plague", there's a running gag of characters saying a word, and following it with "pronounced" and then the word again in a silly voice. Until Grytpype asks a taxi driver for the fare, and gets the reply: "That's four and six, pronounced -- ten bob."

Added DiffLines:

* FlockOfWolves: In "The White Neddie Trade", Seagoon mentions in an aside that he's a secret agent from Interpol, trying to infiltrate an illicit smuggling ring. The show ends with every other character revealing that they, too, are secret agents from Interpol.
