Torchy series 2 (and 1) are filmed in excellent detail on these DVD sets - far better than any BBC 60's Dr Who so it was probably taken from B&W 35mm film. The puppet strings appear to be made of thick wool and are hardly AP films `supermarionation' of the 60's, but as most of the characters are toys anyway, being a puppet as well just adds to their charm. Besides it's the quality of Roberta Leigh's imaginative stories (and songs) that carry these series, e.g. Torchy's song: "Torchy, Torchy, the little battery boy, I'm a clever walking, talking toy. With bright blue eyes and golden hair, I've a magic beam that can shine anywhere". Typical quote: "Elephants never forget, but donkeys always remember".
My son (9) and daughter (11) are very taken with the Torchy series and watched all the episodes over 2 nights. They weren't fazed by the B&W picture either. Torchy and Flopsy the rag doll are very much children compared to the more adult characters in Anderson's later series, so perhaps my kids identified with them. So surprisingly a big hit with the latest generation. Highly recommended then, but no extra's - as the two DVD set is crammed with twenty-six 15 minute episodes that's no surprise. Probably not for sober adults though, unless you first caught this series in 1958 age five.
