Eye candy with a pretty cool story writing
30 May 2010 | by (Seinäjoki, Finland) – See all my reviews

I watched this as a kid and I loved it. As an adult I re-watched this and still found Doctor Snuggles interesting. The show might seem old fashioned for now, but certainly it is not outdated. You can find a lot of Lewis Carroll in here, but also some Douglas Adams, who himself actually wrote a couple of the episodes. Doctor Snuggles is a synthesis of an old Victorian culture and the newer sixties psychedelic movement. The Doctor himself is a good natured philanthropist and inventing genius, who helps people, human-like animals, and monsters to overcome their unimaginable problems. The story runs in a colourful landscape where nothing seems to be what it first looks like. The solutions that Doctor Snuggles discovers are usually extraordinary, and that will keep even an adult viewer interested into the end of an episode.
