This is very poor puppetry, visible strings, naff voices.......BUT........ it is a real classic programme that thousands of children are missing out on. TV for children is boring now and it is far too technical, this is a DVD with catchy stories, memorable characters and a theme tune which outdoes any other. A fantastic DVD, I'm still a fan at 21. You can never grow out of Mr Spoon and Co. As stated in an earlier review it is very simple yet very effective.

My 18 month old daughter absolutely loves this DVD, she sits glued to the telly, sometimes quietly taking it all in, sometimes shouting out what she can see. I must admit I was dubious when my husband bought it, as it was not one of my favourites as a child , but my daughter cant get enough of it !! Its a simple idea , Mr Spoon goes to Button Moon up in Blanket Sky every day. Each time he visits there are different characters to meet, and then he looks through his telescope to see a visual story , sometimes classics like three little pigs, tortoise and the hare etc.. If you like your kids stuff with special effects,computer animation etc.. this ones not for you, look out for the blokes in black clothes moving and twiddling in the bacground. I never noticed them back in the 80's !!

Button Moon was a favourite of mine and my sisters when we were younger, and we were only too pleased to see the video available here and buy it. It was good to watch it. A wholesome programme and a classic children's show.

I've been a fan of Button Moon since it's airing. As a grown woman I still love to watch the feel-good episodes when I'm unwell and have a duvet day!
My nieces watch it when they come to stay and I'm proud that the programme spans generations and still brings a smile to the viewers face. With a catchy theme tune to match this is a great children's TV programme that retains it's innocent fun.
Must buy and a perfect stocking filler!

My 10 month old son is absolutely mesmerised by Button Moon and as a parent it is invaluable for when you need a quite moment. My three other teenage children loved it too when they were little, my daughter's first words were " 5 4 3 2 1 BLAST-OFF" and they are all still happy to watch it now with their baby brother. Please, please can we have more, please!

Although the production for this series was low key and the budget small, Button moon delivers in every sense. The acting is superb, the scripts fantastic and the setting is nostalgic. The narrator captures the mood in a way that will bring a tear to your eye, setting the scene and tone for such epic stories as not seen on modern television since The Ten Commandments or Cleopatra.
The special effects were way ahead of their time, reminding me of the first time i watched Blade Runner and Star Wars.
The moonscape is beyond compare. The inside of Mr Spoons space craft looks like CGI was used but of course it didn't exist back when this was crafted
I hope there will be a remake on the cards, Anthony Hopkins would be perfect for Mr Spoon with Maggie Smith his wife (i think hugh Grant could get a cameo in one form or another).
I have looked at other sci-fi, but the starwars prequals, Aliens or Promethious do not even come close.

Bought this for my 2 year old as a bit of a rebellion against the brightly coloured, loud, fast moving children's tv show around at the moment. I wasn't entirely sure what she'd think of it as it is so different to anything that's around today. But, since the dvd popped through the door it hasn't left the player, she absolutely adores it. The dvd is simple, no added extras or special menus but you wouldn't want or expect that from a release like this. The series is nicely paced for small children, the stories are interesting and surreal but in a way that appeals to even very young children. And of course there is the added bonus that the theme tune makes me smile and if I have to watch it it doesn't drive me insane! It's more old fashioned than I remembered it being, you can see the strings on the puppets, that sort of thing but it all adds to the charm. I think this is a must for all parents driven to distraction by current offerings.

With children's television using the highest technological advances nowadays it's great to be able to recollect when things werent so well polished, Button Moon is simple yet effective. It doesnt confuse children with new technology, computers and metamorphing creatures but tells nursery rhymes and adventures in a great fun way. It's exciting and enjoyable.
