Product Description

Animated fun for kids with Roobard and Custard in their updated 2005 digital incarnation, which retains all the hallmarks of their original cult adventures. In 'When There Was a Surprise', Roobarb builds a new computer to help him with his inventions and realises that technology does not always work the way you want it to. In 'When the Laughing Had to Stop', Roobarb sets up an artist studio and paints a masterpiece portrait of Custard. In 'When Rookie Fell Out of the Sky', Roobarb develops some silly sport wings in an attempt to help his old friend Rookie fly again. In 'When There Was an Elephant', a travelling elephant, with a case of the sneezes, arrives in the garden on a very hot day. In 'When the Books Went Bye-Bye', Roobarb throws all his books out and challenges Custard to a test of knowledge. In 'When There Was a Wind-Up', Custard mocks Roobarb as he starts a new clockwork invention. In 'When Roobarb Went On a Fitness Drive', Custard persuades Roobarb to lose the fat and get fit. In 'When Modern Thingamajigs Need Tweaking', Custard becomes an entertainment svengali and secretly signs-up Moggy Malone and Poodle Princess. In 'When Communications Weren't The Best', Roobarb builds and launches the most amazing satellite. Finally, in 'When the Garden Was Dry', Roobarb decides to irrigate the garden during a hot summer's day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roobarbs' Return 11 Sep 2007
By Zorba1
I must confess, it took me a few weeks to realize that this was not the original that I had watched as a child. However, I can confirm that it is every bit as wonderful as before and I am enjoying just as much as I did 30 years ago. The theme tune starts up and you are transported to the 1970's with zany plots, crazy characters and Richard Briers. I have no hesitation is recommending this to anyone and am eagerly waiting for Vol.2 to drop through my letterbox. My kids love it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roobarb's back! And so is Custard 29 Mar 2010
Anyone who grew up in the 70s will remember the zany cartoon antics of Roobarb & Custard. Roobarb the bright green dog who invents crazy machines in the garden shed and his arch nemesis Custard the purple cat who is always on hand to throw a comedy spanner in the works. This new series of shows carries on where most of us left off in our childhood; great puns and wordplay for all the kids in the room and a huge dollop of nostalgia for everyone else, fun for all the family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rootastic! 29 Mar 2010
Mad mayhem from the much-loved back garden characters of my childhood. I have seen the occasional episode from this new series on channel 5's Milkshake! and enjoyed them as much as the kids. The animation's all wonky as you'd expect and the brilliant Richard Briers is a genius. Great fun and silly word play. More please!

Even better than I remember and my own kids are now obsessed with it. Fantastic to hear the lovely late Richard Briers' voiceover too. What a fabulous story teller!

1.0 out of 5 stars Mistaken Identity 21 Jan 2013
When I ordered the item I was aware that a 'new version' had been made, so this was a gamble....would it be the old one from the 70's? In the 60s and 70s there were fantastic comics like The Beezer, The Topper, The Lion (which became The Lion & Thunder) and comics like Jerry Anderson's fantastic Century 21. These were so good they used to get as much attention as the daily papers, if not more. In the same way, the entire family used to gather to watch The Clangers, which believe it or not had the same pulling power as Star Trek! These cultural icons appealed to young & old alike. A common feature of them all was a kind of quaint 'English' charm. The last kids' tv shorts series which fell into this bracket was 'Roobarb & Custard' in the 70s, with the wobbly animation, daft humour, simple silly stories and of course Richard Briers narrating. The dvd which I purchased was the 'new' Roobarb & Custard produced in Eire in 2005. Disney have (I believe) been doing the same sort of thing with 'Winnie the Pooh - The Sequel'. Maybe I have changed, and I would no longer find the original funny. It's still got Mr Briers, and it still wobbles, but the quaint humour was (for me, anyway) a gonner. Maybe it is for everybody in the age of mobiles and computers, after all the first electronic calculators looked to all of us like a miracle. Never mind, a charity shop will be the benificiary and maybe a new generation will enjoy this new version in a way that I cannot.
