Superb clarity of picture, sound and colour the same as the episodes shown on TV. This DVD comes beautifully presented in a blue metallic background slipcase, showing Lieutenant Kwazi, Captain Barnacles and Medic Peso swimming right towards you. Factory sealed in clear polythene, this would make an ideal gift.

We really enjoy the orchestra at the start of each episode, turning the volume right up, gets you in the mood for an adventure! The music is lovely throughout so too the detail of the underwater worlds. We have found out so much through the Octonauts. My little one requests books from the library now about the ocean to learn more. Fabulous purchase, entertaining, inspirational and educational with good morals. Number 1 is shown on the spine, hopefully more will follow soon. Absolutely brilliant!
