Very funny, classy comedy
20 April 2001 | by bain-3See all my reviews

This was top, class, quality children's entertainment. Tony Robinson and all the other cast put in a great performance and really made something that could have been boring come to life. Hilarious, fast-moving script and very funny gags and situations. WHY DID IT END!?
