Product Description

Up above the streets and houses, Rainbow climbing high...

The Rainbow House is always an exciting place to be. Join the original Rainbow gang for seven hilarious adventures in this fantastic new video:

Zipman and Bobbin:
In the world of Batmobiles, Geoffrey the Joker and his friend Sourface Bungle are about to be challenged by Zipman Zippy and his friend Boy Bobbin George.

Zippy's in Love:
When Zippy falls in love with a television presenter, he sends a poem he has written himself. He wishes she would come and see him--and he's in for a surprise.

Hot Day:
It's such a hot day that Geoffrey gets out the paddling pool so everyone can keep cool. But when Bungle begins to fill it with water from the garden hose, Geoffrey gets quite a surprise.

Zippy Sets Them Up!:
Why is Zippy being unusually helpful? Is he changing for the better? Geoffrey is suspicious.

Bungle's High and Mighty Day:
When Bungle receives an invitation to Sooty's birthday party, he thinks he is very important. Zippy and George get very cross with him.

Zippy Wants to be a Comedian:
Ernie Wise pops into the Rainbow House to give Zippy a helping hand in achieving his ambition of becoming a comedian.

George's Secret Wish:
George makes a secret wish. Zippy thinks he is wishing for a little Thumbelina, Bungle thinks he is wishing for a flower, so they're both very surprised when George's wish comes true.

Using the same review for these rainbow dvds as i feel its appropriate. These dvds are a good trip down memory lane but they dont last long enough so if you are paying more than £5 per dvd then stay away as some dont even last 1 hour which is a joke for how many episodes were filmed back in the day. Id like to see a mega box set with every episode sometime but i doubt it will happen.

Why does it say 1978 on the Amazon description when the episodes are from 1989? Not the classic seventies Rainbow I was expecting. Disappointing.

If anyone remembers watching Rainbow, then you MUST buy this DVD! Includes the classic episode where Zippy falls in love with a television presenter, and writes her a poem... "Debbie Debbie Debbie, I'm in love with you already". One last thing, -BUY IT!!

Anyone who loved Rainbow as a kid should buy this DVD. Highlights include Zippy & George in the bath, Zippy & George dressed up as Batman & Robin, Ernie Wise teaching Zippy how to tell jokes and sadly Rod, Jane & Freddy get a look in as well. Highly recommended!

Rainbow is the kind of show that you never forget. I remember watching it as a child over fifteen years ago, and it still makes me laugh today. Everything about the show is unforgettable: the characters, the songs and especially the theme tune. When I saw this DVD, I just HAD to have it!!!
There is only one word to describe Rainbow and that is "classic".
The episodes on this DVD are hilarious!! My personal favourite is "Georges Secret Wish".

This is the best way to keep small kids and big kids amused, especially Geoffery showing his acting talents as the joker in zipman and bobbin.

Love it or loathe it Rainbow is a national institution and an iconic piece of British TV history. The deranged zip-mouthed creature (Zippy), the dippy and gullible hippo (George), the insanely camp bear (Bungle) and their human `friend' Geoffrey all return for another collection of episodes - this time all centring on the motor-mouthed puppet. With highly camp song and dance trio Rod, Jane and Freddy in attendance, plus a sprinkling of guests and those memorable animated interludes, this will provide hours of nostalic fun.
