Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really lovely! 12 Feb 2006
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 30 Mar 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming and well animated childrens' stories. 27 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Kipper and his friends entertain through a collection of wonderful stories that even after the umpteenth viewing still manage to entertain my two and a half year old son and more importantly me! The animation style matches perfectly the gentle style of the stories which make for good viewing at anytime of day. The only complaint my little boy had was that his favourite character, Jake, was not in this collection. 'Hey butterfly, get off my lollipop!' has become a stock phrase in our house. I recommend this video to any parent who is already a fan, or looking for an alternative to the standard childrens cartoons available at the moment. I challenge any grown-up not to be humming the best theme tune in childrens' television within a week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 23 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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)

5.0 out of 5 stars My son's favourite video- no mean feat! 6 Jan 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Gentle,yet humorous, Kipper is a big hit with both my 3-year-old son and 18-month-old daughter. They laugh out loud at the little dog and his friends' exploits. With beautiful animation, and rich, yet comprehendable language, this quirky cartoon has my kids hooked. My son, himself an avid golfer, squeals with delight as the novice Kipper holes his ball in one. He constantly quotes the hapless "Tiger", using language and stuctures hitherto unknown to him, chuckles as Kipper's unexpected guest steals his cornflakes in "Mouse", and adores escaping up a rainbow into the fantasy world of the "Clouds" episode. A fun video to watch with your children (and retell afterwards), as well as a fantastic distraction for when you need to do the housework! The Kipper books, which my children have always loved, have now come alive in this delightful video.

By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This wonderful video was an instant hit with my 22 month old son who had previously really enjoyed the PINGU series, but obviously needed more in the way of real language. The voice of Martin Clunes provides this excellently, whilst the stories cover subjects that every toddler can relate to. Four five to ten minute long episodes explore the issues of being looked after by a babysitter; why it's good to talk about problems; getting lost and feeling left out. The subjects are broached in an engaging way with the use of suprisingly sophisticated humour that works brilliantly. With wonderful music and other sound effects this video is the perfect choice for those who seek high-quality, stimulating but fun entertainment for children. This will be my son's first Kipper video of many.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted with Kipper 23 Sep 2005
By Bevmac
Format:DVD
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.
