Goofs

When Dylan is supposed to be playing guitar for Ermintrude's concert, he nearly falls asleep before coming round and starting to play and sing 'You Really Got Me' by The Kinks however Dylan is playing an acoustic guitar whereas the music has clearly got an electric guitar and not an acoustic one playing, this is particularly noticeable during his solo at the start of the song.

Quotes

Ermintrude: Surely it's only a short hop for such a brave bunny.
Dylan: More like a long drop for a dumb rabbit.

New for old?

OK, I loved it, and yet I was (slightly) disappointed too. Tom Baker voicing the part of the villainous Zeebad was absolute genius. His crazed, maniacal lines were wonderful. And Dylan was brilliant too - Bill Nighy was just the right choice. But I missed Dougal's cynical, world-weary quips from the original Magic Roundabout. And Ermintrude was disappointing too.

The animation is certainly very good, although again I missed the original 'cardboard cutout' feel of the garden backdrops. (It was very good, but just not like the original!) I'm glad they kept the train the same! The 70's soundtrack was very welcome. It's not entirely obvious what music would work well, but I think they got that right.

Generally, the original show's short format is not an easy task to expand upon, and I think they did pretty well really.
