Funny and completely lovable, I loved this show when I was little
23 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am 17, but I remember this wonderful show with such fondness. One of my earliest childhood memories, Rosie and Jim was funny and lovable. There was a time when I used to own a vast majority of the episodes on video, and it was something I watched all the time. For a kids show, it had lovely production values, and the show respects John Cunliffe's stories. Plus John Cunliffe stars as John and he does a great job. I particularly loved the parts when he was writing the stories, and the animated parts were well done. The title sequence was truly memorable, I mean I still remember it even after 7 years or so when I have been unable to find this gem. (I have a thing for nostalgia). Rosie and Jim were fun and appealing, and that duck on top of the barge was funny. The stories were sharply written, educational and fun. How I can tell you how much I loved this gem of a series. I just pray it hasn't been forgotten. 10/10 Bethany Cox
