Yes - one of the most respected 'silly' guys of the best years of BBC Comedy - his ability to be the little guy  bullied and still smile gave loads of kids a belief that there was a better way of doing things - that part of his legacy will not be forgotten.

One of my players had a major op - the second one of a Keio ligament implant in the knee and performed in Harrogate the first had been done in Middlesborough - and Dr Grahaem Garden did a BBC cover of it.  During that we discussed many things and his respect and real love for Tim shone through - not often you see a demonstration of real, genuine affection between 'stars'.  Tim could be that guy!

I used to watch the Goodies a lot as well, on reruns on ABC I believe, also had a DVD at one point. It's more my parents generation though, I imagine @Harry @Toinho parents watched it as well. 

Some proper inappropriate stuff as well, I almost choked of laughter at 10 years old when Graeme put on a gollywog blackface and got thumped by a black pudding. Can still find gollywog dolls in Australia as well, more of a curiosity than an actual doll.
