Having said that, we do love Charlie and Lola so we'll get over this initial disappointment very quickly - looking forward to the next DVD being released!
I feel a little miffed that only 7 espisodes were featured, but, like all the other people who have posted their reviews, it's still Charlie & Lola, and we still love it!
Maybe next time Amazon will be more accurate with their pre-ordering details.
The jigsaw game is uninspired and maybe they should have looked to the Playhouse Disney Charlie and Lola site for inspiration. As for the hilarious outtakes and hidden surprises, I think these two terms somewhat stretch the truth. All I could find (including opening up all the files on my PC) was Lola putting on hats and her babbling into a microphone.
I am glad I paid the Amazon price for this DVD as it's a bit steep for what you get. For such an highly original show which stands out from all the dross out there for kids it's a pity more time wasn't spent puting this DVD together.
Despite this the animation, writing and voices of Charile and Lola are so brilliant that the slight naffness of the DVD features and lack of episodes can be forgiven.
The TV is faithful to the excellent books, if anything better. A big factor in buying DVDs for kids is being able to see it many times without wanting to slash your own wrists. This passes that test.
Although you may see it through Disney, it is not Disney in style.It uses longer words and imagination, not qualities you associate with Disney.
But what makes Charlie & Lola unique is that it's not girly, albeit written by a woman. Practically every book and TV programme has the girls as the sensible smart ones, and the boys being loud, foolish with occasional thuggery. Although Charlie is not portrayed as perfect, he is the sensible one. I'm not obsessed with media images of boys, but this is a good one.
Must admit that the characters are charming and the animation is great to watch, particularly the more imaginative storylines, like ‘I Won’t Ever Eat A Tomato’. It also doesn't 'dumb down' to small children in which some kids programmes can do.
Looking forward to series two.
