Trivia

In 2008, the series spawned a live-action theatrical musical show in Spain to celebrate its 25th anniversary. The musical ran twice a day in the Teatro Häagen-Dazs Calderón in Madrid from October 2008; although originally intended only to run until the end of the year, the show's success saw its run extended first until early February 2009, after which it proved so successful that it went on tour around the country until the end of the year.

A very memorable series
16 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is such a fantastic animated series (for everyone, not just kids!) for a number of reasons. Firstly, there are obviously the lovable characters, the way we see them develop throughout the series is a joy to watch. Secondly, the story lines are enticing, you just have to know whats going to happen in the next episode- take the jungle episode and the evil worshippers approaching as a great example of how great this series was at cliffhangers. Thirdly, the music score is really fun to listen to. Although it is distinctly '80s' sounding, each tune really tends to capture the atmosphere of the moments in the series. For just a cartoon series there are so many 'true to life' things in this series- like morals, the evolution of friendships, romance, financial problems and solving problems. Not forgetting the enormous geographical value of this programme- how many places do they visit throughout the series? Point proved. The only thing I have to say against it is repetition. How many times do we have to hear them say they're hungry or they're late for a train? Mind you this recurrence amuses rather than annoys me.
