Two of the books did not make it in the TV series. The Siege of White Deer Park was deemed too frightening for target audience and Farthing Wood: The Adventure Begins was a prequel to the very first book. The Adventure Begins was published in 1994 during the airing of the second season. See more »
The weasel in the series is greatly oversized, being depicted as similar in size to an otter. In reality, weasels are tiny animals, smaller than rats. See more »

I grew up with the animals of farthing wood I don't know how i would have turned out if i hadn't had the ultimate joy of experiencing it.
I have all 3 series on video as well all the original books and all the magazines too.
I still watch them now and again and they still have that same wonderful effect on me. I love the characters so much. There's so much you can relate to in the story; you have the fear of something, courage to stand up, forbidden love, rebelling against your parents and most especially friendship and looking after others.
I thing i didn't like about the series is that in series 2 and more noticeably in series 3 the animals movement became more cartoon like and less animal like, so you have fox giving a big over dramatic yawn, then noticing that owls there suddenly sits up with big shocked eyes, it's just very unanimal-like. I think that because of this some of the animals like mosey lost their adroability when they became more cartoon like.
Either way though it was a fantastic show and i want the complete set to come out on DVD - it would be soooooo much handier than video.
