One of the best animated series from a golden age in kids' TV, this collection of five episodes opens with "Mr Boo Loses a Mountain" where, not unexpectedly, the mayor misplaces Mount Potinakettle until the intervention of Jamie (and Wordsworth and Magic Torch), followed by "Nutmeg's House", "Let There Be Music", "Nutmeg's Box" (think Pandora, only much, much stranger) and finally "The Runaway Trombonium". --Danny Leigh
Here Jamie and Wordsworth meet some strange characters: Mr Boo, an absent-minded old gentleman, Jo-Jo, the odd-job man, Nutmeg, a rag doll, Officer Gotcha, the Cuckoo Land Constabulary, Strumpers Plunkett, Bulli Bundy and Wellibob. Together they have lots of adventures and Jamie's magical torch often helps to save the day. And all this before Jamie's mum discovers he is missing from his bed.
With 13 fantastic stories to watch, take a ride on the helter-skelter and join Jamie and Wordsworth on their exciting adventures in the magical word of Cuckoo Land.

The picture on this DVD is shown in the original 4:3 ratio and the image is excellent - within the confines of it being a fairly old series, it proves to be sharp, clear and colourful with very little noise. Sound also is clear and bright.
