For Those in Peril on the Sea is an episode of the British comedy television series "The Goodies".

This episode is also known as ""The Lost Island of Munga" and as ""A High-Sea Adventure".

Plot

The Goodies decide to set out in a small boat to search for the Lost Island of Munga. Bill wants to go on the voyage dressed as a pirate.

They have problems at sea, but 'rescue' comes in the form of a large ship.

To the Goodies' horror they discover the Captain of the ship is their old enemy, the "Music Master" (who is now going under the new name of "Nasty Person"), and his servant "Gerald".

The Goodies pretend to be sailors, and almost get away with their . However, they are let down by their ignorance that sailors' bell-bottom trousers have real bells attached to them — and none of the Goodies are able to lower their singing voices to reach the deepest and lowest note of the verse of the song "There Is Nothing Like a Dame". Then Tim, Graeme and Bill are tossed overboard.

The Goodies swim ashore and find that they have reached the Lost Island of Munga. They also discover that Nasty Person has set up a tourist trade on the island and that the local people are all working for him.
