Great Show~
27 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching this show (in German 'voiceover') and I can only recommend it to viewers of all ages. I actually just ordered the DVD's and can't wait to watch it again and again. The Brit's have done a great job with this show by treating kids like people and not like little dummies, the story line is continuously interesting and of course Catweazle himself is an incredible character. Catweazle's sudden journey from the 11th century into the 20th century is a tale of wonderful stories that make you laugh and cry and make you want to be part of the story. The actor that plays Catweazle did a great job acting as if he was from the 11th century and his amazement about 'new' inventions in the 20th century seem so real, I remember laughing until my belly hurt when he discovered the phone. I don't want to give away to much because I believe this is a show that is still worth watching in this day and age. A must see:-) Cheerio!!
