hi 5 to childhood ... and everlasting Enid Blyton fun
20 August 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a classic.

I am currently trying to find my old VHS. The characters are wonderful for the range of emotions which they evoke upon the audience; though admittedly limited to a younger audience that will feel exhilarated by the exciting adventure along with the fear which accompanies it.

Well many years down the track it certainly had an affect on me and I would love to find a copy so that I can share the excitement with younger generations ... or perhaps more so for some old time enjoyment. Along with Kym Lardner and the old school Disney robin hood this is defs one of my old time favourites.
