5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy all three episodes of Robbie's adventures.
Robbie the Reindeer's adventures are not quite up to the Aardman standard (although some Aardman staff were involved), but then again that would be nearly impossible. They are fun though with a broad style of humour that works on two levels for both kids and adults. The stories, characters, and animation are deliberately more manic and slapdash than Wallace and Gromit,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Christmas DVD
Bought this just before Christmas to add to our ever expanding Christmas DVD collection. The adults thought it was alright but the children (8 year old boy and 3 year old girl) didn't bother watching it to the end. Usually don't have a problem with that so obviously didn't hold their attention. They certainly never asked to see it again.

This review is from: Robbie the Reindeer Trilogy - The Whole Herd [DVD] (DVD)
Robbie the Reindeer's adventures are not quite up to the Aardman standard (although some Aardman staff were involved), but then again that would be nearly impossible. They are fun though with a broad style of humour that works on two levels for both kids and adults. The stories, characters, and animation are deliberately more manic and slapdash than Wallace and Gromit, but there's plenty going on with considerable attention to detail, meaning these short films can be watched repeatedly, and something new always crops up.

Hooves of Fire follows Robbie's attempts to beat his arch-enemy Blitzen at the Reindeer games. It's fast moving, but there's not much of a story. That's rectified in the Legend of the Lost Tribe, a fun tale in which Blitzen again seeks to best Robbie with the aid of a tribe of short Vikings. The final episode is Close Encounters of the Herd Kind, which perhaps overdoes the aliens aspect of the story, but gains plenty of fun from Robbie's wedding plans.

The jokes come quickly and the voices present a staggering array of comic talent such as Ardal O'Hanlon, Jane Horrocks, Steve Coogan, Ade Edmondson... the list is endless. The huge amount of effort and skill that has gone into these films is clear, so this dvd is great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long time robbie the reindeer fan, 22 Nov 2010

This review is from: Robbie the Reindeer Trilogy - The Whole Herd [DVD] (DVD)
I originally bought the 'Collector's Edition' about 6 years ago, & it is still the first Christmas type DVD the grandkids ask for as November comes to a close. We all love 'Hooves Of Fire', but are not that keen on 'Legend Of The Lost Tribe'. The cast list of the voices is like a 'Who's Who of British ( & Irish ) comedy actors, & Robbie Williams' narration is spot on. Watch out for Ricky Tomlinson as Santa - priceless, & Harry Enfield ( not Ade Edmondson - even though it sounds like him ) as Old Jingle - the retired trainer. And all profits go to Comic Relief. I am just placing my order for 'The Whole Herd' & will review once watched at least a dozen times!!!
