Genius of Arthur Lowe,
This review is from: Mr Men - The Complete Original Series 1 And 2 [DVD]  (DVD)
These short cartoons are priceless.
I had bought a few of the books to read to my daughter, but the cartoons are the best way to get to know the Mr Men. The reason is simple: Arthur Lowe, the gentleman who voices all the characters in each of the 28 episodes. He is, without any doubt, a comic genius - he brings each character to life in a different way, and generates a pathos that makes them not only laugh-out-loud funny, but unexpectedly touching. Seriously, his Mr Forgetful broke my heart!
My young daughter loves these, and of all the children's dvds we have on the shelf, the Mr Men is the one I most enjoy watching.
Personal faves: Mr Forgetful, Mr Small, Mr Dizzy, Mr Nonsense.
