5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless and Perfect Children's Television! 1 Oct 2010
By Jamie B
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The simplicity of Tickle of the Tum is so striking sitting down to watch it again (I was four when it was first broadcast and remember it warmly, but think I like it even more now!)- each 10 minute episode is so packed with material for its short length, and the utterly, charming delivery is almost a masterclass of how to create timeless children's TV.

Folk Singer Ralph McTell (for this series assisted by Danusia Harwood) run a sub-post office in a town called Tickle on the Tum, and every episode sticks to a tight comforting format - A town's resident(played by a sparkling cast of actors/actresses) pop by and, after some brief banter, and tell a story from their recent adventures in the town, straight to camera accompanied by a few illustrations - in virtually all cases, the story telling is so natural that you're swept along for the ride. In another act of simplicity, jokes from the children at home are read with the guest having a blast joining in, before the real magic happens - each episode rounds out with a Ralph McTell song on guitar - he wrote so many marvellous pieces exclusively for this series (and never released since) at the same time his own children were young. The care and depth of his understanding into what works for the age group really shows through. Often gently choatic and never over-rehearsed, the whole show gives you the feeling of stopping by with friends for 10 minutes and being as welcome as can be.

Guests in this series include the delightful Bill Oddie as Dr Dimple (in one of the most playful roles of his career), Penelope Keith as the local bus driver, Kenny Lynch, as Mike the Milkman, Billy Dainty as a Baker, and Susan Wooldrige as Miss Marker the schoolteacher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, simple fun 12 Dec 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a fantastic show. I can remember watching it as a child, and it holds water all these years later. It's a simple show with a simple premise and structure, and all the better for it. Story, jokes, song. And also quite a clever idea of setting it in a post office, as it gives a rationale for the jokes that have been sent in. And the songs are quite catchy as well, I keep finding myself bursting into the Mike the Milkman song!

1.0 out of 5 stars No Barney Bodger 15 Sep 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because it advertised that Barney Bodge was on, I'd told me nieces about it. I was gutted when he wasn't on and felt like I'd wadted my money... Where is series two?
