5.0 out of 5 stars Lose yourself in ''the good ole days'' 20 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
This is the DVD that I've been waiting for ever since DVD was invented. I grew up with this series in the 1980's and early 1990's, and to watch it again is just a delight. What we have here is 4 DVD's containing each of the 26 episodes in full, complete with Ian Tracey's commentary of what will happen in the next episode, as well as what happened in the previous, just as it was aired. Of course, each has been digitally remastered for DVD, making it an even more enjoyable experience. As a bonus, you have a 30 minute episode ''The making of...'' featuring interviews with four original cast members as well as the producer, which are fascinating.

This compilation has been well worth the wait, does justice to this cult series, and I'd recommend any fans to buy it without hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic adaptation, well presented. 1 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
It has been a long time coming, but the DVD is well worth the money and the wait. Complete with extras, like the Making of...., which includes interviews with the producer and cast members, the overall package has been thoughtfully and carefully put together. The accompanying booklet gives an episode guide with pictures, and is a good addition to the product. The production has always been a classic, and thankfully the DVD produced does it justice. Buy it,you wont be disappointed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars worth the wait 31 May 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've waited a long time to see this on DVD, but it's been worth the wait: beautifully produced, with a 12 page photo-booklet, and a "making of" featurette. Wonderful to be able to watch it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars . . "IT WAS INJUN JOE . . .!!!" 24 May 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Along with thousands of other youngsters at the time this was 'essential' viewing in the summer holidays, squeezed between the Pink Panther & Why Don't You it made those summer mornings glorious.
Brilliantly cast, well written, some great drama especially involving Injun Joe, Huck's Pa, and the emotional return of the boys after they are presumed dead. I watch this every summer and it still makes me cry from the opening song to Aunt Polly's overdubbed dialogue. I can't heap enough praise upon this series, makes you wish for those care-free days again when all you had to worry about was whether to go down the beck or play on your grifter with your mates.
Bully stuff.

Format:DVD
This is the classic Canadian / German television series we all watched and loved during the 80's and early 1990's. Sadly this excellent series hasnt been shown here in the UK for many years, but thanks to Fabulous Films we will soon be able to own the official release of the full series.

Ian Tracey and Sammy Snyders star in this excellent tv series with 26 x 25min episodes covering the material in 'The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer' and 'The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn' books by Mark Twain.

I loved watching this series when I was a child and none of the movie versions come close to this classic childrens television series. Ian Tracey played a great role as Huckleberry Finn.

The series theme tune was also very memorable as were the opening titles featuring the paddle steamer travelling along the Mississippi river to the lyrics 'time looking back on the days that were slower, when living was easy and neighbours were friends...'

I cannot recommend this television series enough. buy it now and go on an amazing adventure with Tom and Huck.

5.0 out of 5 stars A television series 25 years in the waiting 11 Oct 2007
Format:DVD
Only Heaven knows how long I have been waiting (for about a quarter of a century) to have the chance to watch this television series once more, and now, with the blessings of Fabulous Films, my time of waiting is almost over lol. I am a Canadian and I can remember when I watched it on CBC network, and then afterwards, it ran for a while on a pay television network. I have managed to tape them all once back in the early 1980s, but accidentally taped over it a little bit later. Now, some 25 years later, I find out that there is a DVD release of that magic television mini-series. I did not care about the fact that the dvd is a region 2, on the next day I went to an electronic store and got myself a PAL compatible dvd player and PAL compatible television set. That is how badly I needed to see it again once more. I just find it a little bit odd that the Canadian CBC network (whom that program was produced by) did not manage to have a dvd release in Canada. But thanks to Fabulous Films, I will be able to reminisce childhood television memories, rafting down the Mississippi River, looking back more on days that were slower, when living was easy and neighbors were friends...

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as you remember 24 May 2011
By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The start of the theme tune says it all: "Try looking back more on days that was slower..." I guarantee you'll love it.

What always pops up in conversation about TV shows you used to love as a kid? This! And who watched this as a child and hasn't wanted to see this again as an adult? No one!

I'm glad to say that now I have, and it's pretty much as I remembered it too! The grave robbers, Aunt Polly's horrid spring tonic, and of course, Huck Finn himself!

This was a trip down memory lane that I thoroughly enjoyed and the more I watched, the more the memories came flooding back.

I was surprised at just how much I remembered (even though I'd forgotten it all!) and as soon as my mind was prompted by the stories on screen, I remembered the scenes and how terrified I was by the people in them - like 'Injun Joe' and Huk's 'mean old pa'!

The box set itself is well put together (although the case is a bit of a let down - just a big cheap plastic case - I'd have liked it presented in a descent boxset at this price) but once you open the VHS-esque casing things improve.

There's a large number of DVD discs (26 episodes, a stills gallery, a 'behind the scenes' stills gallery and a brand new 30 minute 'making of' documentary spanning 4 discs) and a little booklet that compliments your viewing with a list of episodes and summery of each one's stroyline.

They haven't been remastered, looking as dull and grainy as they did originally - but it suits the series perfectly and I wouldn't want to see it again any other way.
