As many people already said - this series is a one of the nicest memories of my childhood. Honeltsly speaking, i hardly remember any content of stories today - 20 years later, but it's spooky and weird atmosphere are as alive and shivering like i watched it yesterday!
There are only 4 things i remember in fact:
1. the atmosphere 2. the face of the storyteller himself 3. the dog 4.the fact that it was the best children programme me and my friends ever watched.
I will certainly get myself a DVD, put it on my "top 20 shelf", and watch it over and over again.
