The DVD is divided into 4 episodes, and each episode is approximately 15 minutes. Repetition of each episode is strongly advised, as well as pauses in between to emphasize pronunciation for young learners of English.

1. Spot's Alphabet:
- A for Acrobat, B for Ball, C for Car, D for Dolphin, E for Elephant, F for Flamingo, G for Giraffe, H for Helicopter, I for Insect, J for Juggler, K for Kangaroo, L for Lion, M for Mummy, N for Nuts, O for Oranges, P for Peaches, Q for Quartet, R for Reindeer, S for Snake, T for Tiger, U for Uniform, V for Violin, W for Wigwam, X for Xylophone, Y for Yak, and Z for Zoo.
- The vocabulary used to represent the letters of the alphabet are not really good examples. Some of the vocabulary is not frequently used, therefore difficult to memorize for small children, ie. quartet, wigwam and xylophone. Not to mention that xylophone begins with a "z" sound and not an "x" sound.
- The order of the letters when being first introduced to the watcher can also be in disorder, for example, it introduces P, R, S then Q, instead of PQRS, or Y then X instead of XY.
- I am mainly disappointed in the fact that there are no phonetic sounds to each letter. When the alphabet is being introduced to a beginnner, the letters need to be taught along with their phonetic sounds, otherwise there is no point in teaching the alphabet at all.
- The male voiced narrator lacks repetition of the alphabet letters when first introducing them to the watcher.
- There is more emphasis on the narration of the story than the introduction to alphabet letters. Also, sentences used in the narration are a bit too long and fast to grasp for beginners of English listening.
- The story itself is not very good, but the musical part of the alphabet is creative.

My two year old daughter is a big Spot fan and owns many books as well as a copy of 'Spot's Show & other Musical Adventures' on DVD. This 'ABC' DVD is nothing like that. The cartoon is not animated in the same way - it looks very dated. It is not voiced by Jane Horrocks in the lively and interesting way that the other episodes are - it is voiced by an elderly and dull sounding man. The words picked to illustrate the alphabet are bizarre and unhelpful - Q is for quartet (yes, really!) and the 'story' into which the alphabet is woven is boring and incoherent.
Any child who has enjoyed Spot on DVD with Jane Horrocks will be disappointed with this, and any parent who was hoping to introduce their child to the alphabet would be better off buying 'Maisy's ABC' on DVD.

My 1and 2 year old did not like this dvd at all. After 2minutes they were sreaming for their rock and learn dvd. I cant comment on the content as my toddlers refuse to watch it. If you have boisterous toddlers that like to dance and jump around, this will be too slow. Its more suited for quiet children.

It is ok for learning, but due to the quiet and boring nature of the narrator, my son tends to switch off after a while and ask for 'Peppa Pig'
