Another piece of fun and useless Goon Show Info
In the Australian town of Woy Woy (where Spike Milligan’s family settled in the early 1950s), it was planned to commemorate the Goon’s song, ‘I’m Walking Backwards for Christmas’. The residents were going to walk backwards in a parade through the township.
Plans were altered though because of fears that the local Municipal Council would face legal action should anyone injure themselves when walking backwards.
In true Goon-type style, the 300 or so walkers wore their clothes backwards whilst actually walking forwards.
