Trivia

Although the action takes place in the present half of the characters are dressed in clothes from around 1900, mixing incongruously (but charmingly) with the 1966 technology and with the dress of the other characters. See more »

A complete classic
4 October 2009 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I remember when I was young and watching this series on television, and loving its simplicity. Now I'm older I have recently watched it on DVD and its just as excellent. It stands the test of time and have since shown it to my nephews, which they love. I whole heartily recommend this series, along with Trumpton and Chigely for young and old alike. It brings back nostalgic smiles and is such a truly well crafted production. 10 out of 10 for a simply brilliant collection to be worthy in anyones DVD collection. The series creator Gordon Murray has produced and created a true masterpiece. The bright colours and ingenious animations instantly will appeal to kids (my nephews are 3 and are glued to the TV when I put in on). The series narrator, Brian Cant does all the voices with enthusiasm and gusto to make the various characters really come alive and keep the small stories interesting. Each of the 3 series is around 13 episodes long and tells short 'tales' from the point-of-view of different people, yet all centre around the feeling of 'community' and 'pulling togeather'. The Music is also very nostalgic and complements the tone of the series nicely and each episode contains a 'charming' little song.
