Fantastic children's show--great for parents too!
22 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the best children's program I have ever seen. It teaches responsibility, imagination, manners, multiculturalism and more in a most enjoyable fashion. The animation is beautiful and the stories are pure delight for both kids and adults. This is the one show I allow my 4 year old to watch every day and I enjoy it as well. Each episode follows the same format, a modern day Grandpa Piggley tells stories to his three grandchildren about his adventures growing up in rural Ireland. The childhood tales feature his family, his school full of adorable animal friends and his ever faithful companions, Ferny and Dannan (a veritable Ron and Hermione, if you will). They have wild imaginations and good intentions and truly, each episode is pure delight. I can't recommend it highly enough.
