Poor quality and no new episodes, 5 Feb. 2004
This DVD is a good example of how to take great computer generated animation and ruin it during the transfer to DVD. The picture quality is terrible (for a DVD). The bit rate (which shows the quantity of information used for the picture) is around half that of a typical feature film on DVD.
I guess that someone at the production company thought "hey, the kids won't notice". They probably won't and they probably won't even care.
The trouble is, this is a full price DVD (at time of writing) and the quality is VHS standard (just), which makes you think why bother with a DVD?
Other than the poor quality image, the episodes aren't new. They have been on television (five) for a while now.
On a more postivie note, there's a very simple game to play using the DVD remote. There's also a colouring game which you need a PC for.
If you (or rather your children) don't mind the poor quality, then buy this DVD. If you do, watch it on digital TV and save yourself some money.
