Basil Brush comeback ?
14 January 2007 | by john_probertSee all my reviews

What a joy to see and hear the old fox again on CBBC the other night - would love to see him back on BBC1 in place of what BBC normally muster up on a Saturday night. Great to see he hasn't changed much - still the same cheeky, opinionated, irascible rodent we all loved in the 70s.

His brand of old fashioned humour - puns and repartee delivered in a pompous but warm and kindly voice (they've re created Ivan Owens voice wonderfully) - is a throwback to the 60s-70s and hopefully will win over another generation of Basil-lovers, and remind older fans what they've missed since he went off air all those years ago.

Go Baz ...........
