Oh no more Goody.
That's baddy.

I liked him because he was the silliest.

I agree with you, MaizieD. He was a very funny man. It's very sad. Sterling Moss has also died but not of the virus.

I'm so sad - he was a big part of our lives for a while. Our big ones loved The Goodies.

Aw, I loved the Goodies and their bicycle. RIP TBT.

Peter Bonetti the footballer has also died. He was 78 but I don't know if it was the virus or not.

So sad. We saw him in Portugal once. We ate in the same restaurant.

I loved the Goodies. There was nothing crude about their slapstick style of comedy. So sad, Tim.
