5/8

Thanks so much for putting this together.  I can't believe there are episodes from Series 1, 2 & 9 that I've never seen....!!!  If only they were all on DVD.  This has been great - I'm going home tonight to watch the many episodes I've taped!

Actually Hendo, it's an Australian site  

It is designed, maintained and hosted locally in Adelaide (South Australia) by me .  I'm just lucky enough that the major contributors to the vast store of information come from all around the world. 

Lisa (Current president and Grand Master of Ecky-Thump) Lives in the USA, and the original founder (Alison) and very active member of the fan club lives in the UK after emigrating from Adelaide.

I member seeing Kitten Kong around 1978-9 and loving it, I live in California, and they were only shown here very briefly. Then last week I saw Kitten Kong again, and it's still really funny, the anchorman getting stepped on is hysterical.

Re: Hendo's request for Goodies song lyrics.  I'm currently working on preparing the Goodies Music Reviews from past C&G newsletters for posting up on the website in this section.  Most of these reviews didn't contain the lyrics of the songs (just comments about them) so I'm currently adding in the lyrics for the 23 Goodies songs that have been reviewed so far.  I should have these up on the site within the next week or two and then you can sing along to your heart's content!
