Noggin the Nog is Fantastic
11 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Although the animation in the noggin the nog series is not very advanced compared to modern day animations, the plot, music and voices are all far in advance. The characters and settings are all very original and are far more interesting than much if the rubbish coming out of Disney currently. My dad purchased a VHS version of four noggin the nog episodes when me and my sister were four and six respectively and it is a genuinely classic children's animation, that I feel should still be shown on television, even today. Oliver Postgate has done a great job here, and i would recommend people of any age watching this extremely well put together animation series.
