4.0 out of 5 stars A great DVD with only one nitpick 23 July 2014
Fantastic series, very witty and very creative. It has a great cast and great stories. I can only speak from a limited perspective (as I'm quite a bit older than the target audience now), but I think it's definitely got something for everyone. I wish it had been on TV when I was a kid! The visual style (puppetry with vinyl toys and animation) is very grabbing, the characters are very fleshed out and even more emotional than you might expect for a comedy.

For older audiences, there's also a wealth of pop culture references and jokes - this might sound offputting at first (I've known many children's shows with otherwise fantastic set-ups fall prey to becoming nothing but an odd in-joke with everybody BUT the target audience), but it's actually extremely well done. The references aren't in the least bit obnoxious, and they're moved along swiftly so if any fall flat the show doesn't dwell on it. Actually, the extra layer of humour is very funny in my opinion!

Your best bet for gauging the quality of the show and if you want it or not, is to catch a few episodes on BBC iPlayer, or on everyone's favourite video sharing site! ;) It's a show much better experienced than described.

Onto this DVD release though, since the product description doesn't say, here's some more info for anybody looking into this dvd!
There are no special features (unfortunately) on this disk, the audio is English only, and there are also English subtitles.
