A few news items:

* In honor of the release of the new Goodies DVDs today (details at, Network have added another clip to YouTube - this one has two of the Goodies' mock ads.

* Thanks to the Bristol Slapstick Festival for a pointer to this photo - - of the Slapstick Festival and Aardman Animations Awards for Excellence in Visual Comedy Award The Goodies received last evening.

* An article appears in The Daily Telegraph (and on their website) today mentioning last evening's event in Bristol and the release of the new DVDs.  Strangely, it claims this is the Goodies first public performance in 25 years - guess they weren't among the 3.3 million people who watched the "Return of The Goodies" special in 2005 (which is being repeated on BBC Two this Saturday night)...

Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke Taylor appeared at The Watershed in Bristol to mark the anniversary of their debut series which first aired 40 years ago on November 7.

The three comedians will also perform at the Slapstick silent comedy gala in January.

They rose to prominence with BBC2's The Goodies in the 70's and have also re-released their 1975 classic hit The Funky Gibbon to raise money for the International Primate Protection League.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary, they are releasing a DVD, At Last, Back For More, Again, which features eight of the best episodes. The Goodies' classic ode to the ape The Funky Gibbon is to be relaunched to raise cash to help protect the primate.


* Yesterday's edition of The Daily Mail has an article about "The Funky Gibbon" being relaunched in aid of charity to help gibbons, which are endangered primates

Do the Funky Gibbon... again: The Goodies release classic song to protect primates

The Goodies' classic ode to the ape The Funky Gibbon is to be relaunched to raise cash to help protect the primate.

Comedians Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden originally scored a top ten hit with the novelty song in 1975.

Now 25 years on, the track has been given a revamp and will by re-released to boost the coffers of the International Primate Protection League's Save the Gibbon campaign.

Gibbons rank among the most endangered primates in the world.

Since the 1950s, numbers of the Hainan gibbon have plummeted from more than 2,000 to fewer than 25. All 16 species of gibbon are threatened with extinction.

But the IPPL hope that with the help of The Goodies, the profile of the forgotten ape will receive a boost.

Helen Thirlway, director of IPPL, said: 'Gibbons are often overlooked because, due to their small size, they are classified as lesser rather than great apes.

'This means they don't receive the same funding and protection and yet they are equally at risk from poaching, illegal trafficking and habitat destruction.'

The Funky Gibbon will be available for download from tomorrow at
