Movie Details

Two longtime stalwarts of the classic British non sequitur comedy series The Goon Show headlined this sort-of spin-off. Peter Sellers and Michael Bentine were the principal instigators of Yes, It's the Cathode-Ray Tube Show, which also featured David Nettheim. In time-honored "Goon" tradition, this six-episode confection was a crazy quilt of wacky sketches, movie and TV parodies, loony recurring characters, sped-up filmed segments, and occasional animated interludes. Originally telecast from February 11 to March 18, 1957, Yes, It's the Cathode-Ray Tube Show might have run even longer had co-star Peter Sellers not had other professional fish to fry. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
