Product Description

All 26 episodes from the second series of the 1970s children's puppet-based programme. Queen Ethelbruda and her husband King Woebegone rule over Cloppa Castle, as it is brought under seige by the inept Hasbeenes. Fortunately, both sides think nothing of stopping for a cup of tea with each other in the afternoon. Episodes are: 'The Blues'; 'When You Gotta Grow, You Gotta Grow'; 'Squatters' Wrongs!'; 'Water on the Brain'; 'It's a Monster!'; 'A Fatal Attack of the Lovee Doves'; 'Folkbangas For All'; 'Blow Your Own Trumpet'; 'A Big Heart Beats in a Small Frame'; 'To the Victor the Spoils'; 'The Call of the Cloppa Clarion'; 'A Chain is as Good as a Rest'; 'The Crusade That Never Was'; 'Go to Blazes!'; 'Doughnuts'; 'The Pied Piper of Cloppa Castle'; 'A Vulture for Culture'; 'Operation Facelift'; 'The Friendly Enemy'; 'Young at Heart'; 'Taters in the Mould'; 'Clothes Maketh the Man'; 'Oil For One and One For Oil!'; 'What Goes Up Must Come Down'; 'Low Treason' and 'A Complete Washout!'

5.0 out of 5 stars Too good just for children 1 July 2005
By A Customer
Faded memories of watching this in 1978 when I was four caused me to buy this DVD. I used to think it was the cleverest show on TV because the program would end with the ATV sign-off, and, just when you thought it was finished, you'd get a 10 second reprise.
The marionette characters are endearing, and the dialog is witty, if not terribly P.C. The producers acknowledge that they really wanted to make a grown-up program..."Where's my battle axe? She's right here, Sire". What childrens TV program today would quote from Shakespeare, use words like "conflagration"?
The producers once worked for Gerry Anderson at Century 21, but the characters seem to have a different feel to say, Captain Scarlet. There is a "featurette" on the DVD with behind-the-scenes shots and interviews.
Buy it, for you or your kids, and you won't stop singing the theme tune.
