As a kid I used to look forward to watching this and I have to say that many years later I find it as wonderful as before. Jon Pertwee was simply fantastic as Worzel and his characterisation of the loveable scarecrow evokes so many emotions within me. I laugh at his childishness and selfishness and feel so sorry for him when he is treated so badly by his unrequited love Aunt Sally. Geoffrey Bayldon (one of my all-time favourite actors) is superb also as The Crow Man and the quality of each episode never dips throughout. The 'Down Under' series (shot in New Zealand) are both also very good if you give them a chance. One word of warning however, do not buy this along with Amazons selected partner 'A Cup O' Tea An' A Slice O' Cake' because that entire feature is also included here so you will only be doubling up. This box set is good value too as it contains every episode ever made so if you don't want to buy it for yourself get it for your kids!

well worth the money.........i purchased this set for my partner as a xmas present, as we had both remembered the prgrammes from our childhoods with fond memorys. John Pertwee and Una Stubbs were fabulous in these roles, and I cant think of another childrens programme that could even compare.We have watched these episodes over and over with all our kids, whos ages range from 10 months to 16 years, and they think they're "heavy" (great).if you're looking for a great family classic this is definatey it.

I've been having great fun watching this classic British series that is both well made and well acted. Shot entirely on film and on location, Worzel stands the test of time against many other programmes of the era that have dated horribly due to their reliance on videotape. As a result, Worzel has a timeless filmic quality that say, Doctor Who of the same era hasn't got. The cast are superb. Jon Pertwee's Worzel is lovable and hilarious while Una Stubbs' Aunt Sally is vindictive yet still worthy of our affection. Geoffrey Bayldon is a friendly and wise Crowman while the tragic Charlotte Coleman grows in stature throughout the four series of the original run and was always destined for a great acting career. Almost every episode has a wonderful guest star whether it be Joan Sims, Lorraine Chase, Barbara Windsor, Mike Reid, John Le Mesurier or any of the galaxy of stars who appear. The only downer is the print quality. The picture you get on the DVD is of a film that is almost thirty years old and urgently needs to be remastered and restored. Episode one is so badly faded that it's almost black and white while some episodes suffer from a muffled audio track (although it's not bad enough to spoil your enjoyment). Print quality varies from episode to episode although the quality improves considerably the younger the episode is. If it wasn't for the print quality, this would be a sure five star review. I fear that in this day and age of HDTV and super sharp DVD images, the picture quality will put some people off but they'd be missing out on one of the best made children's programmes ever made and that can stand up to anything modern television can throw at it.

Absolutely marvellous - the programmes are as wonderful to watch today as I remember them as an infant! I bought this box set for nostalgic reasons and to introduce my husband to the world of Worzel - we are both completely hooked. The film quality is really not bad at all and after a few minutes you are so caught up in the story and the quaint scenes of village life that you forget what high definition films look like! A must for any Worzel fan.

I loved Worzel Gummidge as a child and jumped at the chance to buy these Dvd's. So glad i did, has brought back so many happy childhood memories. John Pertwee should get an oscar for his role...lol! Absolutely fantastic! I am currently a third year nursing student, stressed to the hilt doing my research proposal and dissemmination. When it all gets too much, just pop in the Dvd, de-stressed with laughing. Yeeha! Would recommend to all. Only downfall is the quality of some of the episodes.

Even my son watched it and he was quite taken with it.
One of the Greatest programmes that I ever watched.
Would highly recommend it to anyone.

having watched worzel gummidge as a child it was a joy to introduce it to my own children,it has a warm happy feel to the series that makes it great family viewing for adults and children alike and even though i was hesident that it would be dated for todays viewing i was surprised to find that it came over really well and the filming was'nt wooden. one thing i would recommend when watching this though is have a cup of tea and a slice of cake this will go down very nice with it.(GREAT FUN)

A great boxed set with all of the Worzel Gummidge half hour episodes, plus the Australian series and Christmas specials. However the quality leaves something to be desired and the filmed episodes really do need some TLC and digital work on both sound and picture.

However, a great reminder of a fun series and worth the outlay if you are a fan.
