Ten classic tales featuring mischievous mutt Kipper, voiced by Martin Clunes. In 'The Visitor', Kipper is visited by a lost gosling who must learn to fly so it can rejoin its family. In 'The Umbrella', a fishing trip turns into a real adventure, while in 'The Seaside', Kipper has to rescue his friend Tiger who gets stranded by the incoming tide. In 'Nothing Ever Happens', the bad weather is beginning to bore Kipper, but everything changes when he finds a top hat and a wand. In 'Pig's Present', Kipper can't decide what to buy for his dear friend Pig, but when he finds something he realises that he wants to keep it for himself. In 'The Rainbow Puddle', our canine friend finds the end of a rainbow where a magical frog offers him three wishes. 'The Butterfly' sees the little canine forced to face a dilemma after he traps a butterfly in a jar. In 'The Bleepers' the playful pup meets some visitors from another planet. In 'Snowy Day', Kipper ventures out to play in the freshly fallen snow with his chum Tiger. Finally in 'Pig's Cousin', Arnold is carried off into the sky when he tries to fly a kite.

My 21 month old is watching this as I type and ROARING with laughter. It's the first time he's ever really laughed at anything on TV. He's enthralled by this DVD in a way he hasn't been with Maisy or Bob the Builder or Baby Einstein. He loved all three of those so I'm quite amazed by the look of delight on his face when he sees Kipper!
These little cartoons are really lovely. The screen is very calm, with spare drawings and very little background. I like the way the screen is usually all white and bare except for the important things - the characters and whatever they are using, like a window (but no wall) and a basket (but no room, save for a faint line marking where the floor might stop and the wall starts). It's very easy on the eyes, and so calm compared to most children's TV!
Martin Clunes is excellent - better than Neil Morrissey is in Bob or Maisy. His voice is very soothing but full of character and fun.
The characters are warm and funny without being twee or sickly, and the whole thing just exudes cosiness and fun, without being irritatingly wholesome. But it is very wholesome. And, it's fun for adults to watch too. I could watch this over and over again. Perfect for snuggling on the sofa on rainy Sunday mornings. Kipper gives you the warm fuzzies like the programmes from your own chidlhood.
This is a winner!

I bought this for my 18 month old twins. The animation is perfect for them: simple and uncluttered (almost minimalist), not fast or crazy. The background music is also excellent, pleasant and unobtrusive. Most importantly I think, is the clear and simple language (with English actors doing the voices). I can recommend this 110%. The kids love it as much as I do!

I have an English background but we live abroad and I'm raising my children (the older now 2 1/2yrs) bilingualy. So obviously I select the DVDs to watch very carefully - she is only allowed a minimum of television anyway. This one is perfect because:
- Enchanting nice stories, very loveable character
- of the 'good old' kind - unlike the typical Walt Disney stuff
- Nice English (not American) spoken
- Kipper has a very pleasant voice
- Each story has a perfect goodnight-length (approx. 10mins) and an obvious end (so there is no debating whether one can see any more)

Kipper on DVD at last!
10 good length stories and no rewinding. All the favorite friends (Tiger, Pig, Arnold etc) and a few new ones.
The kids watch again and again.

My 22 month old daughter loved this DVD and watched it constantly for 2 weeks around France. Lovely simple but colourful animation and gentle music make it a winner. It was so pleasant that even my hubby and I enjoyed the repeats.

My 2.5 year old daughter absolutely adores this DVD, even though she seems to be quickly bored with other stuff. It kept her entertained for a very long car journey - what a life-saver.

My daughter started with Kipper aged 2yrs - she's now 3 1/2yrs and it hasn't lost its appeal. A selection of short stories usually around 10minutes ideal for bed-time. Clearly spoken English no slang. No violence, simple, bit educational - the parents like it and the kids as well. Nice and harmless.

My 2.5 yr old has been a Kipper fan since he was 10 months old...It has come to be an excellent way of calming any tantrum or frayed nerves!!!
