For better or for worse or for both
on 3 February 2015
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.
