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.

Entertaining modern treatment of a classic children's TV show
26 August 2005 | by snarler45See all my reviews

This is a very clever and innovative animation based on the characters of the old TV show. So if you are expecting a rehash of the old TV show then you will not see one. This is a family film but not for infants or very young children, like the old TV show. Adults like my wife (45) and me (48) laughed continually. Many of the jokes will go over the heads of young children but will not cause offence. There is quite a bit of fighting and "mild peril" which is not at all like the TV show which is why it is not suitable for infants. The plot is really good with Tom Baker playing an evil version of the Zebadee called Zeebad who wants to take over the world. Dillon the Hippy Rabit, played by Bill Nighy, who with Dougal and the rest of the cast have to save the day. This is a really good film and will have you splitting your sides.
