Written by The Goodies, with songs and music by Bill Oddie.

Plot[edit]

Graeme and Bill invite themselves along when Tim decides to visit his great-uncle Butcher at his country mansion "Tally Ho Towers", and they are waited on by Butcher's butler, Basterville. Tim is hoping to inherit his great-uncle's money and Graeme and Bill coerce Tim into agreeing to share the money with them.

Butcher leaves his money to Tim in his will — and soon after has a fatal accident. Tim as the new owner of the mansion gives in to hunting — much to the disgust of Bill and Graeme, who then have to cure Tim of his hunting obsession with aversion therapy.
