* SoundToScreenAdaptation: The roots of the show lie in manic 1960's ensemble comedy show ''Radio/ImSorryIllReadThatAgain'', which starred the three Goodies with JohnCleese and Jo Kendall, who both performed TV cameos in the series. Several ISIRTA sketches were recyled into ''The Goodies'', and fans of the radio series can be heard in the studio audience, knowingly cheering mentions of Spot The Dog and all references to gibbons (funky or otherwise). The TV show also gave Tim Brooke-Taylor ample opportunities to reprise his Lady Constance [=deCoverlet=] voice.
