Product Description

Product Description

Five animated adventures with Percy the Park Keeper, as voiced by Jim Broadbent. In 'Sledge Ride', Percy and his chums build sledges and have fun in the snow. 'The Rabbit Who Was Afraid of the Dark' sees Percy advising a rabbit who is afraid of the dark to eat more carrots. In 'One Warm Fox', a fox and his chum the Scarecrow borrow some of Percy's clothes to keep warm in the cold winter night. 'The Hedgehog's Balloon' features Percy coming up with a solution to burst balloons for the prickly hedgehog. Finally, in 'Fox's Hiccups', the fox gets hiccups after being told a joke by the squirrel whilst drinking some lemonade.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful collection of short stories 8 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
There are five Percy tales on this video, each lasting approx. 10 minutes. The stories are perfectly pitched for young children, relating to the animals building a sledge and having fun in the snow, a rabbit who was afraid of the dark, a fox who borrows some of Percy's woolly jumpers to keep him warm at night, Percy solving the problems faced by Hedgehog who loves balloons but finds they keep bursting on his prickles and Fox experiencing hiccups that just will not stop! The characters are appealing and beautifully drawn by Nick Butterworth. My two year old son and I were captivated by this gentle and deeply enjoyable animation. The stories are just the right length for short attention spans, although I must admit that once we began watching we were hooked until the end of the final story!I would recommend this video for any 2-5 year old and am sure that a Percy the Park Keeper video, especially with one of the books to accompany it, would make an ideal gift. As with anything connected with Nick Butterworth, this is a real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just lovely 5 Feb 2008
Format:DVD
This DVD is a rare gem in childrens entertainment. Percy is a kind, caring 'gardener' who lives in his little shed (very well equiped for a small space) with all his animal 'friends' around. All lovely episodes with good stories teaching children about caring for the environment and other people/animals. Would thoroughly recommend as 'family viewing'. We all love it in our house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Fun! 31 May 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Perfect childrens viewing. Lots of easy to watch episodes. The stories are fun and inventive. Current favorites are the one about the hedgehog who can't hold a balloon with out popping it and the one about the rabbit who is freightened of the dark. All the stories are beautifully told and very entertaining. You'll love them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous animation of the books 27 Oct 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This has kept the same charming and beautifully presented stories faithfully. Jim Broadbent is perfect for Percy the Parkkeeper (despite the last thing i saw him in was Moulin Rouge - hilarious!). The stories are a little more involved than say Kipper or the Thomas stories, and are brilliant for children who are able to sit and listen to a story rather than just watch the pictures. And mommies and daddies will enjoy it too :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful patient thoughtful Percy 19 Sep 2008
By Robinho
Format:DVD
Just delightful, the music, the animation is sweet and delightful the stories kind and gentle all from an apparent time when road rage never existed and the worlds biggest worry was homemade lemonade. Jolly happy Percy never frustrated always patient whatever troubles and worries the fox, the badger, the mice and the rabbits bring upon him. The DVD and the books are equally delightful they will be enjoyed for many years by boys and girls and, for sure parents.

Our 18 month old grandson adores this and as he lives in the Caribbean he never sees badgers, foxes, squirrels, rabbits and moles. However, he now recognises them all. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice entertainment.
The kids love it: 2-4 year olds at least. From a grand parent's view, it's nice too. I dont like all on the TV, even CBBC, so this is better.
