Herbidacious!!
27 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

Wow! Sorry but I remember this from when I was little and watching the likes of the Magic Roundabout. There was the adorable Parsley the lion, "I'm a very friendly lion called Parsley, with a tail for doing jobs of every kind, but I mustn't treat it roughly or too harshly, for it's such a useful thing to have behind." And Dill a semi-mad (hyper) dog, Sage a moody owl and Bayleaf the fussy gardener.

I LOVED THIS SHOW!

If you like Paddington and the Magic Roundabout, find a copy of this and watch it!!!

It really was just so funny and cute and I saw a tee-shirt with Parsley on and the memories flooded back!
