Like many Aussie kids of my generation, I grew up with Round The Twist.
I was in Kindergarten when it was first made and the first series as well as the second were the ones that contained the most memorable stories and characters. The abandoned room with the soothing sounds of music coming from the old instruments is still playing in my ears till this day.
Every part of each story was very original and the third and fourth series were a very big disappointment considering the weak cast and the stories were an absolute let down due to the fact that a lot of it came straight out of fairy tales.
The actors who played each of the Twist children in the first two series did an excellent job compared to anything the actors of the third and fourth series could have delivered.
I hope that the Round The Twist series will always remain an Aussie classic to be watched by many generations to come.
