For it being The 50th Review for my new account, I have decided to review one of my most special Nostalgic journeys of growing up! The Trap Door was an 80s TV show which I owned on video tape, I have seen every single episode of that series, one of The Trap Door video tapes I have seen about forty times now! Basically, every episode is a similar five minutes of events that go on, whenever Berk has to tidy the kitchen, feed The Lazy Thing Upsairs or even have to deal with his simple-minded friend: Rogg, he always accidentally leaves The Trap Door open, which leads a strange, stupid or disgusting creature which either creeps up to cause havoc and to make a mess or it will just pull someone back down the trap door to have fun! The Trap Door is great fun with great stop-motion animation and Willie Rushton (RIP) does an outstanding job in doing the voices! I just cannot give this brilliant nostalgic show a lower rating than this! It is very highly recommended for any young audience!
Overall Rating: 10/10!
