I remember there being an episode of "The Goodies" all about it. I recall Tim Brooke-Taylor telling eskimos to, "Go home, your igloo is on fire!" Couldn't find the video sadly.

This was before Tim Brooke-Taylor left The Goodies to become the lead singer of Judas Priest.

The goodies scared me as a very young child. It was a glimpse into a post-apocalyptic society where even the laws of narrative causality had broken down. Which is ironic, as nowadays it's Monty Python for toddlers.
