5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful collection of short stories
There are five Percy tales on this video, each lasting approx. 10 minutes. The stories are perfectly pitched for young children, relating to the animals building a sledge and having fun in the snow, a rabbit who was afraid of the dark, a fox who borrows some of Percy's woolly jumpers to keep him warm at night, Percy solving the problems faced by Hedgehog who loves...

2.0 out of 5 stars Great story as ever
Great story as ever, but picture isnt the best, muted colours and compared to most tv and films, a bit poor in that sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful collection of short stories, 8 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
There are five Percy tales on this video, each lasting approx. 10 minutes. The stories are perfectly pitched for young children, relating to the animals building a sledge and having fun in the snow, a rabbit who was afraid of the dark, a fox who borrows some of Percy's woolly jumpers to keep him warm at night, Percy solving the problems faced by Hedgehog who loves balloons but finds they keep bursting on his prickles and Fox experiencing hiccups that just will not stop! The characters are appealing and beautifully drawn by Nick Butterworth. My two year old son and I were captivated by this gentle and deeply enjoyable animation. The stories are just the right length for short attention spans, although I must admit that once we began watching we were hooked until the end of the final story!I would recommend this video for any 2-5 year old and am sure that a Percy the Park Keeper video, especially with one of the books to accompany it, would make an ideal gift. As with anything connected with Nick Butterworth, this is a real treat.

This DVD is a rare gem in childrens entertainment. Percy is a kind, caring 'gardener' who lives in his little shed (very well equiped for a small space) with all his animal 'friends' around. All lovely episodes with good stories teaching children about caring for the environment and other people/animals. Would thoroughly recommend as 'family viewing'. We all love it in our house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous animation of the books, 27 Oct. 2008

This has kept the same charming and beautifully presented stories faithfully. Jim Broadbent is perfect for Percy the Parkkeeper (despite the last thing i saw him in was Moulin Rouge - hilarious!). The stories are a little more involved than say Kipper or the Thomas stories, and are brilliant for children who are able to sit and listen to a story rather than just watch the pictures. And mommies and daddies will enjoy it too :)

Just delightful, the music, the animation is sweet and delightful the stories kind and gentle all from an apparent time when road rage never existed and the worlds biggest worry was homemade lemonade. Jolly happy Percy never frustrated always patient whatever troubles and worries the fox, the badger, the mice and the rabbits bring upon him. The DVD and the books are equally delightful they will be enjoyed for many years by boys and girls and, for sure parents.

Perfect childrens viewing. Lots of easy to watch episodes. The stories are fun and inventive. Current favorites are the one about the hedgehog who can't hold a balloon with out popping it and the one about the rabbit who is freightened of the dark. All the stories are beautifully told and very entertaining. You'll love them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and enchanting, 14 April 2009

This review is from: Percy The Park Keeper - The Classic Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I got the dvd for my two and a half year old as she loved a book the 'One Snowy Night' book that she got for Christmas. I think she will grow into the dvd but finds it a little hard to concentrate on at the moment. Perhaps better suited to a 3-4 year old. Don't regret the purchase though - beautifully made cartoons with lovely voices.
