On July 4, 2005, Firefly Entertainment released Doctor Snuggles on DVD in Region 2. The four disc box set, titled "Doctor Snuggles - The Complete Collection", features all thirteen episodes. The series has yet to be released in any other region. However, purchasing a region-free DVD or Blu-ray player will enable anyone from around the world to watch the DVDs. See more »
Back when I was younger my parents borrowed an old Beta tape from my uncle which contained several episodes of Dr Snuggles. To this day that tape still resides somewhere in their house, along with the Beta VCR to play it. I used to watch that tape endlessly and could probably recite what happens in nearly every episode that was on there shot by shot.
The show was inspiring and creative, with a real sense of adventure and wacky invention-based problem solving. The characters were all funny, but somehow quite believable. Likewise, the inventions, although impossible (a robot made of soup cans for instance), still made sense in the context of the show.
I remember wanting to be an inventor when I was younger and this show really had me hooked on the concept. These days, while I'm not an inventor of rocket ships and soup can robots, I'd like to think that the creative direction my life has taken is, in part, due to growing up with Dr Snuggles.
