Trivia

Wordsworth's name isn't actually a reference to the famous poet, but is in fact a reference to the importance of words and of language itself, teaching children from an early age how vital linguistics truly is. See more »

Well my daughter loves to watch...
17 January 2003 | by Paul ShrimptonSee all my reviews

The Story Makers always starts off with the kids and helpers leaving a small local library for the night. Once the lights are off, and the clock strikes midnight, then our heroes appear. There's Jelly and Jackson, two hapless, bug-eyed Muppet Show rejects, who are amazed to rediscover exactly the same things that they were amazed by the previous show. And then there's the 'human' presenter, different from show to show, and almost always someone you wouldn't trust to sit the right way on a lavatory. With names taken from Britain's finest poets, we meet large, motherly type who treats the puppets as her lost children, a jolly young girl who you feel might be a cage dancer in a club somewhere had she not got work from the BBC, a too-smooth Shaft-wannabe, and the Carribean's answer to Mr Bean. Only Danny John-Jules stands out as being at all credible, but this is only because he's playing The Cat from Red Dwarf without the teeth in.

Every story they make is bland, uninspiring, and poorly animated, the worst example of which is Blue Cow, who needs to be seen to be disbelieved.

And my 2 year old loves it, so please, please, spare a thought for me. There are people in the world worse off than you, you know....
