Innocent Fun
19 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Come on, let go of your inner critic, man! This show was cool! I really wish there were shows like this today, for my own kids to watch. No cynicism, no meanness, just good clean fun! I especially liked the Dorse and the Chickephant. This giant half-chicken, half elephant thing that lumbered along and pecked at the UFO? Inspired and surreal. Just plain silliness.

In retrospect, the plot is very similar to that of Doctor Who... Time travelers pick up young people and then can't get them back home. Somehow that makes it even cooler.

"Oh no, it's the Chickephant!"
