The Goodies are attempting to raise £100,000 from fans to make a feature-length documentary about their work.
The film will include rare and previously unseen footage of Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie.
And its hoped that the ‘definitive story’ can be released in November next year, on the 50th anniversary of the trio’s first BBC series.
Director Kim Leggatt, producers Pete Ward and Billy Watson have set up an IndieGoGo page to find the budget.
Leggatt said she was using crowdfunding to get the money quick enough to hit the 50th anniversary milestone, adding that the £100,000 was enough to make a film which could then be further funded by distributors.
The three stars have made a video to appeal for the funding, with Oddie saying ‘it’s about bloody time’ their work was celebrated.
Brooke-Taylor added: ’The team making this want, for once, to tell the full story. Things you didn’t know, things that possibly we didn’t know.’
