Tractor Tom: Baa Baa Tom Sheep And Other Stories [VHS]
Five adventures from Tractor Tom and his friends at Springhill Farm. It's always Tom who manages to save the day! In 'Ring Tone' Tom helps Matt find his mobile 'phone. In 'Showtime Tom' Matt and Fi put on a show at the farm. In 'Apple Squash' it's apple-picking time and Tom finds a way to cheer everyone up. 'Baa Baa Tom Sheep' sees Tom being mistaken for the mother of a lost lamb. And in 'Football Crazy' after Tom finds a football, the friends join up for a football match.
Yet another entry into the already crowded field of children's videos, Tractor Tom combines some classic themes with modern twists and production values. The tale of a tractor and his friends and adventures has its roots in the likes of Thomas the Tank Engine, but this show has a decidedly cutting-edge feel, especially with its computer-generated animation.
The choice of Liza Tarbuck and James Nesbitt as the voices of Farmer Fi and farmhand Matt may sound a little odd to a grown-up audience, but they approach their task with such gusto that smaller viewers will not help but get caught up in it all. The stories are simple and easy to follow and will bear the inevitable repeated viewing. Old hands may prefer the more traditional style of animation but it can't be denied that Tractor Tom has a bright, attractive look to it and younger children will find much to keep them amused even if they do not understand the plots. As seems to be standard these days, the programme comes with an accompanying range of merchandise; but it is an enjoyable, engaging series and should keep the small ones entertained. --Phil Udell --This text refers to the DVD edition.
