James is very funny, and (a bit like Roobarb the dog, from that other great series, Roobarb) James believes he is very clever and best at everything, and even when it's proved he isn't, he still believes he is.
James gets left behind in a basket outside of his house when his owners move away, so he has to take over the garden and live there with his friends. He still manages to get inside the house though, as he and his friends put off potential buyers in a hilarious episode on this vhs tape.
I don't even have a video anymore, but was so desperate to see this that I got a copy just so that I could watch it on someone else's video, so I would dearly love to be able to get all the episodes of James the Cat on dvd. I really can't understand why something as great as this, is still not available on disc, it is ridiculous, epecially considering the rubbish that does get churned out on dvd every day.
Anyhow, this is great, cheerful bright colours, and all the episodes are entertaining and enjoyable, apart from Treasure which was a little bit boring, but all the rest, cute, funny and quite brilliant.
James himself is a big, lazy, fat, black and white cat, other characters include a kangaroo, a pink dragon called Dennis, and a frog with a French accent!
It appears that James the Cat had quite a few merchandising products around like toys based on the characters from the show, so it seems even stranger, given the popularity of the series, that it is still not out on dvd! One lives in hope.
