3.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre memories of seventies animations 21 Oct 2001
As a parent I remember most of these cartoons from my childhood. Watching them again with a toddler of my own I'm struck by the bizarre nature of the plots and characters, who make today's counterparts such as The Teletubbies look like true life tales. I'm thinking for instance of Bod and his friends falling down a dark hole and finding a huge bowl of strawberries at the bottom, or the cartoon devoted to a metallic egg that emits classical music. Even Fred Bassett at one point sprouts wings. While little Amber seemed sometimes baffled, my wife and I loved them (apart from the frankly tedious Manfred). My only complaint is the the sound quality on some of the eight cartoons is a bit muffled. But on the whole the video is a testament to the varied and sometimes psychedelic imagination of the 70's.
