The British radio comedy program The Goon Show was broadcast on the BBC for the first time on May 28, 1951. It was originally produced and broadcast by the BBC Home Service from 1951 to 1960, with occasional repeats on the BBC Light Programme. The first series broadcast from May 28 to September 20, 1951, was titled Crazy People; subsequent series had the title The Goon Show, a title inspired, according to Spike Milligan, by the Popeye character Alice the Goon (when The Goon Show was brought to television in the form of a puppet show in 1963, the puppet of The Goon Show character Eccles was modeled on Alice the Goon). The show's chief creator and main writer was Terence Alan Milligan, who named himself Spike Milligan after hearing on Radio Luxembourg the great American novelty song band Spike Jones and his City Slickers. It starred Spike Milligan (British-Irish comedian, writer, poet, playwright and actor.), Harry Secombe (Welsh comedian, actor and singer), Peter Sellers (English film actor, comedian and singer) and from 1951-1953 Michael Mentine (Peruvian-English comedian, comic actor and founding member of the Goons). The scripts mixed ludicrous plots with surreal humour, puns, catchphrases and an array of bizarre sound effects. Some of the later episodes feature electronic effects devised by the fledgling BBC Radiophonic Workshop, many of which were reused by other shows for decades. Many elements of the show satirised contemporary life in Britain, parodying aspects of show business, commerce, industry, art, politics, diplomacy, the police, the military, education, class structure, literature and film. The show was released internationally through the BBC Transcription Services (TS). It was heard regularly from the 1950s in Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, India and Canada, although these TS versions were frequently edited to avoid controversial subjects. NBC began broadcasting the programme on its radio network from the mid-1950s. The programme exercised a considerable influence on the development of British and American comedy and popular culture. It was cited as a major influence by The Beatles and the American comedy team The Firesign Theatre as well as Monty Python and many others.
