As with Series 2, all episodes were co-written by Milligan and Stephens and edited by Jimmy Grafton. Bentine left the show at the end of series 2, citing a desire to pursue solo projects, although there had been an increasing degree of creative tension between him and Milligan.
Milligan blamed his breakdown and the collapse of his first marriage on the sheer volume of writing the show required. Many senior BBC staff were variously bemused and befuddled by the show's surreal humour and it has been reported that senior programme executives erroneously referred to it as The Go On Show   : 37 or even The Coon Show.
Several of the Goons' nonsense songs were recorded in the late s such as the " Ying Tong Song ", number 3 in the UK Singles Chart in The radio show had high audience ratings in Britain at its peak; tickets for the recording sessions at the BBC's Camden Theatre now known as KOKO in London were constantly over-subscribed and the various character voices and catchphrases from the show quickly became part of the vernacular.
The scripts exist mostly in fan-transcribed versions via dedicated websites. Although three books    were published containing selected scripts, they are out of print, and typically available only in libraries or second-hand.
Some more recent biographical books contain selected scripts. There were 10 series in total, plus an additional series called Vintage Goons , recorded at the same time as the eighth series, which featured recordings of redevelopments by Milligan of short sketches from early shows which had not been recorded by transcription services.
The first series had 17 episodes plus one special, Cinderella ; the second series had 25 episodes, ; the third series had 25 episodes plus one special - The Coronation Special —53 ; the fourth series had 30 episodes plus one special, Archie In Goonland —54 ; the fifth series had 26 episodes plus one special - The Starlings —55 ; the sixth series had 27 episodes plus three specials, —56 ; the seventh series had 25 episodes plus two specials, —57 ; the eighth series had 26 episodes, —58 ; the Vintage Goons were re-performances of 14 episodes from series four; the ninth series had 17 episodes, —59 ; and the tenth series had six episodes, — Throughout its history, each episode of The Goon Show, which usually ran just under 30 minutes, was essentially structured as a comedy-variety programme, consisting of scripted comedy segments alternating with musical interludes.
The first two series were mostly produced by Dennis Main Wilson ; none of the episodes was given an individual title  and these early shows were loosely structured and consisted of four or five unconnected sketches, separated by musical items.
According to later producer Peter Eton , the musical segments took up around half the programme. From Series 3, The Goon Show as it was now officially titled gradually settled into its 'classic' format.
Milligan, Stephens and Grafton began to work within a narrative structure and by the second half of Series 4 each episode typically consisted of three acts linked by a continuing plot,  with Geldray performing between Acts I and II and Ellington between Acts II and III.
Almost all the principal and occasional characters were now performed by Milligan and Sellers, with Secombe usually playing only Neddie Seagoon, who had replaced Pureheart as the hero of most of the stories.
The closing theme, backing for Geldray and incidental music was now provided by a big band of freelance musicians under the direction of Wally Stott , who had been writing for the show since the first series.
From Series 3 onwards, the principal character roles were: . The traditional plots involved Grytpype-Thynne and Moriarty getting Neddie Seagoon involved in some far-fetched plan, and meeting the other cast members along the way.
Many characters had regular catchphrases which quickly moved into the vernacular; among the best known are:. The Goon Show has been variously described as "avant-garde", "surrealist", "abstract", and "four dimensional".
Whole scenes were written in which characters would leave, close the door behind themselves, yet still be inside the room. Further to this, characters would announce their departure, slam a door, but it would be another character who had left the room.
That character would then beat on the door for re-admittance, the door would open and close and again the wrong character would be locked out.
The show paved the way for surreal and alternative humour, as acknowledged by comedians such as Eddie Izzard. It was the surreality of the imagery and the speed of the comedy that I loved - the way they broke up the conventions of radio and played with the very nature of the medium.
Cleese recalls listening to The Goon Show as a teenager in the mids "and being absolutely amazed by its surreal humour.
It came at a key stage in my own development and I never missed a show". Orchestral introductions, links and accompaniment were provided by a hand-picked big band made up of London-based session musicians.
Stott produced many arrangements and link passages, further improved by the first-class sound quality the BBC engineers managed to achieve.
The show's concluding music was usually either " Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead " or a truncated and ironic rendition of the Alte Kameraden Old Comrades' march, followed by Max Geldray and the Ray Ellington Quartet playing " Crazy Rhythm " as play-out music.
In keeping with the variety requirements of the BBC's "light entertainment" format, The Goon Show scripts were structured in three acts, separated by two musical interludes.
Both Ellington and Geldray also made occasional cameo appearances; Ellington was often drafted in to play stereotypical "black" roles such as a tribal chieftain, native bearer or Major Bloodnok's nemesis and counterpoint to Bloodnok's affliction "The Red Bladder".
It was in its use of pre-recorded and live sound effects that The Goon Show broke the most new ground.
Secombe recalled "Back in the studio, Spike had already placed a sheet of three-ply near a microphone. In the beginning, when the programme was recorded on disc, it was extremely difficult to achieve the right sound effect.
It was only when tape came into use that Spike felt really happy with the effects. If you can't get two lions, two hippos will do".
Over time, the sound engineers became increasingly adept at translating the script into desired sounds, assisted from the late s onwards by specialists in the BBC's newly formed Radiophonic Workshop.
Milligan's relationship with BBC managers preparing for the recording of episodes was often acrimonious and resulted in rows, and Milligan later agreed that he was a diva during this time, adding "I was trying to shake the BBC out of its apathy.
Sound effects were a knock on the door and tramps on gravel— that was it, and I tried to transform it. Many of these sequences involved the use of complex multiple edits, echo and reverberation and the deliberate slowing down, speeding up or reversing of tapes.
One of the most famous was the legendary "Bloodnok's Stomach" sound effect, created by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop to represent the sound of Major Bloodnok's digestive system in action, which included a variety of inexplicable gurgling and explosive noises.
Lewis , p. Several of the words and phrases invented for the show soon entered common usage, the most famous being the word lurgi.
In the episode "Lurgi Strikes Britain", Spike Milligan introduced the fictional malady of Lurgi sometimes spelled Lurgy , which has survived into modern usage to mean the common cold, or any miscellaneous or non-specific illness often preceded by the adjective "dreaded".
The symptoms of Lurgi included the uncontrollable urge to cry "Eeeeyack-a-boo", though even during the episode the ailment proved to be an extortionate attempt to sell brass band musical instruments.
Milligan was later to make up his own definition in Treasure Island According to Spike Milligan , where Jim Hawkins' mother describes it as "like brown spots of shit on the liver".
Alcohol was strictly forbidden during rehearsals and recording, so the cast fortified themselves with milk.
The milk in turn was fortified with brandy. In later episodes the catchphrase "round the back for the old brandy! In "The Pam's Paper Insurance Policy" Series 9, Episode 4 , Ray Ellington, before his musical item begins, muses, "I wonder where he keeps that stuff!
In "The Scarlet Capsule" Series 9, Episode 14 , Ellington's reply to Secombe's cry of "Time for Ray Ellington and the old BRANDYYY there" was "The introductions he gives me In "The Moon Show" Series 7, Episode 18 , Ellington sympathises with the listeners, stating "Man, the excuses he makes to get to that brandy!
However, Milligan got his own back by making Ellington laugh halfway through the song by doing Minnie Bannister voices while Ellington was singing.
During radio programmes of the s and s, the background noise for crowd scenes was often achieved by a moderately large group of people mumbling " rhubarb " under their breath with random inflections.
This was often parodied by Milligan, who would try to get the same effect with only three or four people, clearly intoning the word rather than mumbling.
After some time, Secombe began throwing in "custard" during these scenes for example, in "The Fear of Wages  and Wings Over Dagenham", where the phrase was amended to 'flying rhubarb'.
As well as being used as a comic device randomly inserted into different sketches to avoid silence, the blowing of raspberries entered the Goons as Harry Secombe's signal to the other actors that he was going to crack up; you would hear a joke from him, a raspberry, and a stream of laughter.
In the Goons' musical recording "The Ying-Tong Song", Milligan performed a solo for raspberry-blower, as one might for tuba or baritone saxophone.
Milligan made much use of a rather surreal Columbia 78RPM sound effects disc, catalogue number YB20, which bears the innocuous title "Donkey" on the label.
Approximating possibly the most obscene and flatulent noise ever recorded, it appeared first in the show "The Sinking of Westminster Pier" as a sound to accompany an oyster opening its shell; it thereafter became known as Fred the Oyster, and appears as such in the scripts.
This recording was often used as a reaction to a bad joke. Examples include The Last Goon Show of All during which Neddie shouts old jokes into a fuel tank in order to "start the show".
Years later, Milligan collaborated with Ronnie Barker on The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town in which the credits read, "Raspberries professionally blown by Spike Milligan".
David Jason has also claimed to have produced the sound effect and indeed was credited with this in the second segment of Ronnie Barker's LWT series Six Dates with Barker In several shows, one character, typically either Henry Crun or Minnie Bannister, would be found trapped in a piano.
In The Mystery of the Fake Neddie Seagoon , Crun was inside a piano and his speech was accompanied by suitable piano noises.
In The Jet-Propelled Guided NAAFI , Moriarty is hiding in a piano disguised as one of the strings. Gritpype-Thynne plays a "do-re-mi" scale to find him - Moriarty is "me".
The "in a piano" joke was re-used one last time in The Last Goon Show of All. Lovecraft Country: Season 1. The Mandalorian: Season 1.

Ed Travis Hollywood Jesus. March 31, Utimately, Goon succeeds even within the comfortable criteria set forth by dozens of sports films that have come before it.
Full Review. David Harris Spectrum Culture. Some will say that a sequel can never live up to the first film. Goon: Last Of The Enforcers begs to disagree.
I was impressed with the writer's ability to squeeze another story out of Doug Glatt and the Highlanders. The story was very well done, and I enjoyed the fact that it managed to incorporate Liev Schreiber's character once again, in an enjoyable way that you may not be expecting.
I enjoyed the inclusion of adult life, Doug having to balance hockey and an incoming child. The dramatic bits are very well done, and make you care for the character that much more.
Jay Baruchel's direction is also top notch, especially from a first time filmmaker. The fight scenes are gripping and bone-crunching, as are the hockey games themselves.
Paul Sarossy's cinematography is very versatile and impressive, making the hockey and fight scenes a joy to look at. Of course, there's the comedy. Seann William Scott is hilarious as lovable but dopey Doug Glatt.
Jay Baruchel reprises his character from the first film and is just as hilarious as he was the first time around. The locker room antics of the team are also just as gut-busting as ever.
This film is humorous, touching and moving, and is on par with the first in terms of quality. If you enjoyed the first Goon, then you'll love this one.
I highly recommend this one. All Titles TV Episodes Celebs Companies Keywords Advanced Search. Sign In. Get a sneak peek of the new version of this page.
