Brilliant!
14 August 2002 | by EstellaSee all my reviews

I think that the first series of Round The Twist (along with the original series of Eerie Indiana)is the best kids prog ever! I loved it's quirky sense of humour and great silly storylines. Someone else who commented on RTT loved the 'Without My Pants' one, well thats one of my faves too. I have some on video, but not that one!! I wish they'd repeat it cos it's worth seeing again. Pity none of the RTT gang seem to have done anything after cos they were all fab.
