Topsy Turvy Land
6 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've just seen an episode of Torchy for the first time in almost 50 years. Like the other reviewer, Ivan, I remember rather hating Torchy, but we watched it on Sunday afternoons, because it was there. Like a lot of Roberta Leigh productions (especially the later Space Patrol), there was a slightly 'bad-dream' quality about it. The good intentions, and large coating of sugar icing on everything dispelled this effect somewhat (I remember a lot of the action taking place on a star called Topsy Turvy Land - eww), but I'm happy to report that I enjoyed it more at age 52 than I did at age whatever-I-was when I saw it first (I think I was watching reruns, and I was about six or seven...I don't know, it was a long time ago). Kenneth Connor was the only name I recognised on the voice artist credit list - all the others were created by terribly posh ladies for the child voices. Anyway, it was nice to see string puppets for a change after all this tiring CGI stuff. Those were the days, eh?
