First thing's first... I felt I should write a review to make a small correction to an earlier review. Noni Hazlehurst didn't just voice the librarian, she provided the voices for ALL the characters, adults and children alike. It's little wonder this show turned out to be as high quality as it did, since it seems every children's entertainment project Hazlehurst touches turns to gold.
This series of five-minute shows (as well as its sister-series "Kitu and Woofl") showed a highly sophisticated use of stop-motion claymation, a technique made famous by "Wallace and Grommit" and similar productions. The characters were instantly recognisable in terms of personality, the "clay cast" was culturally diverse (in a "typical Australian country town" fashion), and the literature discussed on the show was mostly quality Australian literature.
In all, a nice light-hearted way to fill in the gaps in ABC Kids' high-quality schedule from the mid-'90s.
