The Good, The Bad And The Cuddly is the debut album by Canadian pop band The Bicycles. Randy Lee left the band following the release to join The Hylozoists.

Despite playing together as a band for nearly five years, the band's debut wasn't released until spring 2006. The album was partially produced by Dan Bryk and partially by The Bicycles themselves. The album was mixed by José Miguel Contreras of By Divine Right.

"Cuddly Toy" is a cover of a Harry Nilsson-penned song originally recorded by The Monkees. "The Defeat" was inspired a song entitled "The Victory" by The Meligrove Band.[1]

Music videos were shot for "Paris Be Mine", "Gotta Get Out", and "Homework".
