Crumbs! If you've ever looked back fondly on the old animated classics, and wryly observed that 'they don't make 'em like that any more', you may be surprised to find out how right you are. This choice selection demonstrates several things: (1) These programs were far more educational than we realised - do you remember Dangermouse accusing Greenback of being an 'Unmitigated Scoundrel'?! (2) In those days, no-one was afraid to be surreal. Witness the magical world of Jamie and his magic torch: Monty Python never had it this good. (3) Much as I'm against nationalism, there's something fantastically British about these programmes, something that modern day imports (Pokémon, Cardcaptors etc), good as they are, just can't replace. One more thing: a major selling-point of this video should be that it features the very first sighting of Duckula - in a Dangermouse episode!!
