Summary

"At various times, in various places, the people responsible (if that's the word for which I'm looking) for making The Goodies available to the public have seen fit to present it in a fashion different to that seen on the original British transmissions. The main Australian broadcaster, the ABC, has, over the years, deleted portions of the shows that were deemed unsuitable for viewing by children. (The argument that if the show contains adult material, maybe it is aimed at an adult audience seems to have slipped over their heads.) Most of these cuts are listed here; in one or two cases, some material has been restored in screenings in the late 1980s, particularly in the cases of Chubby Chumps and Rome Antics, the latter of which originally was missing about five minutes, comprising many of Roy Kinnear's scenes as a poofy Roman emperor trying to pick up Bill..."
