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 first watched this when it was on the TV.Then when I was about 11 we found a copy in the library.It had several of the original episodes crushed together with some of the story lines taken out but we still wanted to see all of the videos.It was nice for me to see it again and to see the parts I remembered. It is not like Percy the Park Keeper where the animals are babyish and silly.Call me horrid,but personaly I couldn`t care wether the rabbit stayed down the well.Let her stay there! Unlike some things that are not like the books,this show is not awful. The first series was great but the second series was fantastic!It was very exciting and sadder than the first series.I felt like crying at some bits.There third series was weak.It just wasn`t gripping. This is still a classic show.Very endearing. I would give it 10\10 if it wasn`t the third series so I will give it 8\10
