The Goons first went on air at the BBC as The Crazy People on 28 May 1951. There then began a terrible rasping, squealing, giggling, snorting period of lunacy which continued unabated until 1960. Fifty years after the first show there is still a huge interest in the Goons, with each new generation dicovering afresh the anarchic humour that has had such a huge influence on so many of today's top comedy performers. This fascination collection of reminscences, photographs and sketches is the definitive story of Eccles, Bluebottle, Neddy, Bloodnok, Grytpype-Thynne, Moriarty, Minnie Bannister, Henry Crun et al from those who know them best. Under the patient guidence of Spike's Manager, Norma Farnes, Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe, along with a select handful of friends including Eric Sykes, delve into their dusty old memories to help piece together the history of the Goons.
