Goofs

When Dylan is supposed to be playing guitar for Ermintrude's concert, he nearly falls asleep before coming round and starting to play and sing 'You Really Got Me' by The Kinks however Dylan is playing an acoustic guitar whereas the music has clearly got an electric guitar and not an acoustic one playing, this is particularly noticeable during his solo at the start of the song.

Dylan: Hey, maybe this is some kind of anti-spring device.
[he presses button. Brian is catapulted upwards]
Brian: I can fly!
[looks down]
Brian: No, I can't.

If you can push the original out of your mind, you'll love it.
5 February 2005 | by (Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

On entering the cinema, I did have my doubts. I'd watched the original Magic Roundabout from a very young age, and one false step could have ruined both versions for good.

However, the filmmakers managed to make a perfect balance of "old" and "new" to bring out a whole new film, featuring characters that reminded me of the originals, but didn't try to take their places.

The storyline was fun, bearing in mind that it was aimed at young children, and included the token jokes (aimed at both children and adults), teary moments and interesting yet predictable twists. The graphics were excellent, and most of the older viewers were "Ahhh"ing throughout at the sight of the big, sweet eyes. Looking around, I could tell that the young 'uns were enjoying it too, and that's what really matters in a film like this.

Overall, a brilliant transition from a simple, sweet television show to an enormous, exciting movie.
