I've managed to find these to download and i am amazed by the depth and complexity of what is essentially a children's TV show. this handles the subject of a childs "invisible" friend to another dimension with matthew's friend being some sort of aid to his life, helping him learn to swim to save his sister, helping him paint photo realistic portraits and other miraculous feats.
I cant understand how this was ever classed as children's TV, programs with such subject matter would never make it into the 4 o clock slot on todays TV and its mind boggling it ever did in the early 80s.
Anyone who has any recollection of this would love to see it again, indeed a lot of well slept memories were awoken by the sights n sounds of this series.
