An original concept - highly watchable pre-school show
5 February 2003 | by david-hemsley1See all my reviews

The Story Makers is for pre-school chldren and is based around a library that comes alive at midnight, in a fest of colours and sounds centered around the story machine which is a magic computer.

Jelly and Jackson are highly lovable puppet charectors that are complimented by one of the "Wordsworth" members. Series one had Danny John Jules as Milton Wordsworth, but since he wasn't available for series 2, four new "Wordsworths" were introduced into the mix, all taking their turn in the library with the puppets. Seies 3 saw the return of Danny as Milton, and now the team of Byron, Shelley, Rosetti, Webster and Milton seem to work well.

Lots of story based charectors to work with, Blue Cow being the mainstay, and voiced by Nic Mercer, who also voices Jackson.

Very colourful, very watchable plus the theme is good too - watch The Story Makers if you get the chance.

Why didn't they have shows like that when I was a pre-school boy!
