The GoodiesOr rather, Goodies! These characters have re-formed, though they're certainly not reformed characters.

From The Australian :
Veteran British comedians The Goodies reckon it's almost as "weird" as their own zany antics that they should be remembered more in Australia than back home.

It's 20 plus years since Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden's manic and crazily irreverent brand of humour has been screened nationally in their own country.

"We are totally forgotten and ignored at home so to actually come here and for anybody to remember who we are is quite weird," Oddie said in Sydney today.
But we owe them
The Goodies first aired on the BBC in November 1970 and ran for 12 years.

They sought to save the world from such bizarre threats as a marauding giant kitten and a plague of Rolf Harrises.
See what I mean? A plague of Rolf Harriss doesn't bear thinking about.

The reason they're forgotten in Britain is because their old shows never get repeated - haven't been on for decades, apparently - so completely the opposite case to Australia where they were shown year after year.
