Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

"Jump in we'll take you for a spin/And show you round the Wheelie World". For pretty much anyone between the ages of 25 and 40, merely the opening line of the theme to this crazed slice of cartoon bedlam will be enough to jog memories and pluck heartstrings. For everyone else, a brief synopsis is probably in order. Well, self-evidently there's Chorlton, the least intimidating dragon in television history, whose unexplained arrival among the Wheelies is a constant source of vexation to Fenella, a spectacularly ineffective witch with a base camp at Spout Hall (yes, it's a big kettle) and a cadre of mushroom-like toadies and "spikers" with whom she consorts to bring havoc to Wheelie World. Oh, and she also has a son, who only ever appears as a vast, disembodied foot.

In short, Chorlton is a crown jewel for all fans of 70s children's TV at its most unapologetically demented. Happiness is Dragon Shaped, the first five-episode collection, opens with "Happiness is Hatched" (wherein, of course, Chorlton arrives fully formed in Wheelie World via an enormous egg), before proceeding into the titular segment, "Chorlton Says it with Flowers", "The Lost Wheelie" and "Chorlton and the Crimewave". Needless to say, the ever-apopleptic Fenella remains hysterical throughout. --Danny Leigh

Product Description

Complete collection of the classic 1970s children's animation, featuring Chorlton the Dragon and his friends the Wheelies. Includes all 40 episodes and the Christmas Special, 'Chorlton and the Ice World'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gradely! 20 Nov 2009
For those of us who fondly remember the great programmes we used to watch as kids, this is a treat.

The stories, the accents, those mushroom things, Clifford (of whom only one foot was ever seen), Queen Doris (OMG I'm chuckling already), and then there's that witch. Fenella is an absoloute scream - especially when having a tantrum!

Buy this, and show the kids what fun we used to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars just what I ordered 8 Jun 2009
Just the thing for the grandchild. I remember it well from years ago when bringing up my own son. A couple of episodes each visit works wonders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grab a bottle of wine and enjoy! 1 Sep 2011
By Inciden
I had forgotten how good Chorlton and the Wheelies was. The "little old lady" is just brilliant. Mt friends think there is something wrong with me, and they may be right, but with all the crap, depressing news, and computerised "cartoons" that are on the box these days Chorlton beats them into a cocked hat!!!
Cannot recomend it enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Wonderful Trip Down Memory Lane 6 April 2011
I loved Chorlton as a kid and wanted to share this wonderful piece of children's entertainment with my own 6 yr old daughter. The picture quality is not quite up to modern standards, but the charm and magic of Wheelie World hasn't faded one bit. My daughter fell in love with it straight away. It really does stand the test of time for me. Much better that so many of these gross modern animated things that kids are being fed these days...!!!
