Delightful series.
16 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

Cannot understand why this is still unavailable on DVD. It is bright and colourful and cheerful, cute, funny, great characters, especially James, who thinks he is so brilliant and good at everything, when he really isn't, and even when it's proved that he's really rather daft, he still believes himself to be the best. Hilarious, witty and charming. The series begins when James gets forgotten and left behind in a basket outside of the house when his owners move away. James then moves into the garden, where he lives with his friends, which included a kangaroo, a pink dragon called Dennis, and a frog with a French accent! Another very funny episode is where James (a great big fat black and white cat, by the way!) and his friends attempt to put off potential buyers of the (now empty) house.
