it is not just my love and curiosity for shiny objects that draws me to this show. it is absolutely hilarious!! one of the children's shows that can truly be appreciated by adults.

the main idea is that a short video is watched and then questions are asked. this improves children's concentration and memory skills. it is also very educational, upon watching this i learnt a lot about fish, cheesemaking, religious festivals and more. the videos and questions are intertwined with the three 'presenters' (a tiger, dog and monkey) playing games. at no time is it boring as the banter between these three is fantastically funny. at the end of each round the winner is rewarded with 'shinies' (oh how i would love to have a 'super shiny'...).

overall a fantastic purchase for children or even adults who are interested in quirky humour and shiny objects. the only drawback is that the dvd only contains five episodes each at 10-20 minutes long so it is quite short.[...]

I got to know this show very well, as it was one of my young son's favourite CeeBeebies shows (the other being Storymakers..).

The hilarious antics of the three main characters here and the multi layered humour are so wonderful and some years later, all three of us can watch this show again and again with silly grins on our faces!

I really hope that the production company can release more of the episodes they recorded (Dogsby doing a startled rabbit impersonation is a joy to behold and has us in stitches...), as they are all very good indeed and timeless in a "Watch With Mother" kind of way (I'm REALLY showing my 50+ years now,,,).

I SINCERELY recommend this disc for young families, even though the show is still being repeated on the CeeBeebies channel. BRILLIANT! if you agree with me - *give yourself a shiny*..........

If your idea of kid's tv programmes is sitting through something banal and incomprehensible, wondering what mind-altering substances the producers were ingesting when they came up with such stuff, then I can say with cast-iron confidence that you have never seen The Shiny Show - in which case you must do so, right now. Drop everything if you have to.

The format is basically that of a quiz show; of the three main characters (Dogsby the dog, Tigs the tiger and Mukka the monkey) one assumes the role of the quizmaster while the other two are the contestants. Short film sequences on a chosen theme are shown and then questions asked that test observation and memory skills. Correct answers are rewarded with a 'shiny' (often some random household item like a spoon) and the 'winner' at the end of the show (the one who collects the most 'shinies') receives the 'super shiny.' Children are encouraged to join in and compete with the characters to win the super shiny, with encouraging words and songs offered whether they 'win' or not. In between each 'round' of the quiz the three characters will take a short break and play games together, based on the theme of the show.

On the face of it, this sounds like nothing remarkable. But what sets this show head and shoulders above anything else on tv right now are the three characters, Dogsby, Mukka and Tigs, and the hilarious banter between them - the quality of the comedy in the scripts is outstanding. Quite simply, this is humour that works sublimely on two levels, and even the most po-faced of adults will be laughing as much as the kids.
