Product Description

Product Description

Finally, the cutest dog on TV gets the recognition he deserves. Starring as Sooty's sidekick in The Sooty Show, Sweep is funny, talented and not only that... he's Superdog. Join Sweep (and the rest of the gang) in six exciting adventures:

Superdog and the Comedian:
Superdog has amazing powers: he can fly faster than you could imagine and he can hear when someone is in distress. Will he be able to defeat his enemy, "The Comedian"?

Bouncers:
Spring greens have an effect on Sweep--he bounces. Runner beans make Soo run. Whatever next?

Hot Stuff:
Sweep becomes a fireman and every time he sees a fire or smoke he turns on his hose... and Matthew always ends up getting wet.

Sweep's Family:
Sweep has a mother, father, brothers, sisters, grandad, grandma, uncles, aunts, cousins and nephews and they all have mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandads and grandmas. Sweep has invited them all to his party.

Honking Nose
Something very odd is happening. Soo and Sooty have discovered that Sweep's nose "honks" and his ears "ring". How bizarre.

Swinging the Lead
Sweep is feeling bad, he hasn't done his homework. He makes Scampi powder his face so he looks pale and ill. Will he get away with it?

I was always a huge fan of the Sooty Show and in particular Sweep. "Sweep Superdog" is fantastic. Watching these episodes, you realise that Sweep always got a raw deal from his peers (in particular Sue.) This DVD chronicles the strugles he must endure and overcome (such as excessive springiness) in his daily life. And the episode about his family simply brought a tear to my eye. All in all this DVD is a well deserved monument to one of the most memeorable childhood heroes of all time. A classic.

6 classic Sweep episodes from the Golden Era of Sooty, each lasting 25mins with Matthew Corbett in the lead role with his faithful friends along for the ride. Wonderfully charming and sweet. While younger audiences used to the new 'The Sooty Show' with Richard Cadell that run a lot shorter may struggle to sit through an episode with less slapstick, it is still bonkers and innocent fun for the family.

I bought this DVD because I love Sweep, and anyone reading this review must have some affection for the little grey dog, or they wouldn't be here.
The DVD is relatively cheap, and contains 6 episodes focusing on Sweep. All of the episodes are taken from The Sooty Show, and having viewed the end credits of each of the episodes, the dates range from 1988 - 1992. You'll find that in a couple of the episodes, the Sweep puppet (puppet I hear you say?) looks a bit rubbisher than in the newer episodes.
Anyway, most of the episodes on here are great. The only bad ones in my opinion are Superdog And The Comedian and Sweep's Family. Unfortunately, there are no proper extras on the DVD, but at this price, you can't argue.

Anything where Sweep is seen and heard is worth 5 stars.

I do wish the BBC would release the vintage 60s Sooty series with Harry Corbett.

His son Mathew is very good,but I much prefer to see the more chaotic frantic politcaly in-correct early stuff from his dad.

I remember Soo had a very croaky voice in those days!

Would be good to see all 50s and 60s children/variety shows released on DVD,or give us a channel on tv that caters for such golden classics.

The Sooty Show - Sweep Superdog [DVD]My grand children [21/2 & 5 years] love Sooty and Sweep, and so do I. WE even have the puppets. Good clean enjoyable fun for children. There is good teaching in this DVD also on how children should behave and caution on playing with matches etc. Great for Grandpas!

My Era of Sooty featuring Matthew Corbett . . . and now I get to relive it all over again with my own children. It's true, time has moved on and the way children's programmes are made and the formats they take on have obviously changed. For better or for worse or for both? Well perhaps this is all debatable. What I do know is that My son (aged 4) enjoys watching these 80s/90s Sooty shows, as does my daughter (aged 2). I have this one on now and they won't let me switch it off!

If you're looking for some good clean family fun for younger kids, without camera angles changing every 2 seconds, endless sound FX, explosions etc. then you can't beat a bit of Sooty. Matthew Corbett is funny, too. This Dvd puts the spot-light on Sweep or 'Superdog' as he appears in one episode. You'll also get to see Sooty attack a smoke-alarm with a banana, Sue appears in each episode and is as bossy as ever and Little Cousin Scampy puts in an appearance, not to mention all of Sweep's siblings unleashing mayhem! Children entertained, and all that for 3 quid!

Can't give this any less than 5 stars.

Sweep would easily make my top 5 greatest Britons in history so any sweep on DVD is a mandatory purchase for me, I mean my 2 year old daughter.

The only negative thing I can say about this collection is that Soo always seems to be grassing Sweep up or telling him off.

Great Video reminds me of a lot of memories.
The best parts out of all the Sooty Programmes on this VHS/DVD were Superdog,Bouncers when Matthew tricked Sweep that Runner Beans make you bounce and Spring Greens make you spring which were very funny. Also Hot Stuff whenever Sweep saw a fire Poor Matthew got drenched.
I liked the remixed theme tunes for the opening and closing titles which were used in the final "Sooty Show" series in 1992 before it became "Sooty and Co" in 1993.
Out of Sooty's gang Sweep is the funniest out of all of them.
