Storyline

Children's animation from the 'Smallfilms' team of Postgate and Firmin. In the 'top, left hand corner of Wales' runs an archaic railway line staffed by such characters as Jones the Steam and Dai Station. Their pride is Ivor, the steam engine with a will of his own and a penchant for such things as looking after dragons in his firebox. Not quite so pervadingly melancholic as some 'Smallfilms' creations, however it maintains an enchantingly slow pace without being sickeningly sentimental or patronising.

Wonderful cherished childhood memories! An asset to my generation. Ivor the Engine.
16 April 2004 | by (Reading) – See all my reviews

I loved Ivor the Engine when I was young and yes I'll admit it I still do more than ever. I have purchased the whole series on VHS as a reminder of my childhood and actually watch it a lot. Nothing can compare, yes there is Thomas the Tank Engine but Ivor the Engine is pure magic! The music, the people and even the dragons. The episodes are very good too especialy my all time fave 'Snowdrifts' and there are many others! Thank you Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin for making my childhood great and memorable!
