3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anarchic, ground-breaking and hilariously inventive, The Goon show re-shaped comedy and set new standards in the genre. The mix of brilliant wordplay, mental slapstick and surreal clowning ensures the popularity of Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe will never wane. The Goons dominated the humour of the 1950's with its mix of surreal clowning, licensed anarchy and innovative, punning wordplay. Another crazy quartet of cult comedy classics, all digitally remastered, from those wireless wizards Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe
