Ideal for parents to involve themselves whilst watching with their children. The elements of high quality programmes such as this is sadly lacking in the modern children's tv listings.
The 'low budget' emphasises the beautiful simplicity and lack of unnecessary sophistication that is so often forced upon small childrens' minds these days.
Instead of parents being compelled to purchase commecial merchandise everytime they enter a Woolworth's store, here is a show where children can have stimulating creative activities as a follow up by making their own fingerpuppets.
The presenter, Rick Jones, is absolutely superb. His gentle understated voice, and interaction with the puppets is a joy to behold. Watching him again after so many years (as a late 60s child Fingerbobs was regular viewing before I went to school) filled me with a warmth and nostalgia that comes back every time I watch it again.
Without so many reviews, the average rating this show is getting is not currently representative of its true quality. Please believe me, it's way, way up there along the other classic shows for small children of this era.
Oh, and my 14 month old baby simply loves it :-).
Other reviewers have rightly noted how economical this show was, its all shot in one small set, illustrated with mostly cardboard and paper painted scenery, and played with simple hand-puppets of paper and Ping-Pong-ball. Rick Jones tells the stories with his talented hand performances and hirsuit smile and twinkling eyes, whilst the action is accompanied with regular and hummable little tunes.
I tend to think that this could only have been made in the nineteen-sixties, but maybe that's just me, there is something right and perfect about this incredibly efficient (cheap) production, I watched it a lot in my infancy and it has stayed in my mind ever since, so it must have been compelling in the way it told its simple yet instructive stories with its cleverly diverse set of characters.
Stones, feathers, bricks - it has drawn his attention to these objects in real life. The most memorable part for me, from my childhood, was the crow trying to drink water from a jug and I must say that scene didn't disappoint.
It's for curious minds - young and old alike. For my part, I like to watch carefully from scene to scene whether Yoffy looks more or less stoned than in the last when he smiles. I love Rick Jones's voice - his tone, pace and his clarity are perfect and calming - and the fact that he was 32 at the time but looked older doesn't bother my child even if it causes an issue for one or two other reviewers, as I think it makes him a little more magical and all-knowing to a young child. Beautiful viewing and a healthy pace.
I have a small son, age three, and the results while watching the show with him were quite unexpected. I am talking here about a kid used to watch Mister Maker hiperactive style, and totally alien to the English language.
Surprisingly he got easily involved with Finger Mouse and his friends. He even tries to sing the songs, -but obviously with a very personal invented languaje :)-.
The interesting thing here is that he just likes the first half of the show, that is, where the finger puppets interact. When the animated stories made with the collected material begin, he gets up and starts to wander around or asks for another episode.
Fingerbob's charachters are so easy to make, I even got some color construction paper and made two of the characters (for me it was easier to improvise instead of following the intstructions from our 21" tv set) to play with my son while making our own stories.
