This is great! As is the companion dvd entitled The Snake Charmer. I would like to see more Herbs dvds. Sage the Owl is my favourite character, along with the delightful little dragon, Tarragon, but unfortunately we don't see much of him, (the dragon) only one episode so far.
I am a little confused as to how many Herbs episodes were made, I have read that there were only 12 in all, some say 13, but on the two dvds there are only 5 episodes on each, and an extra episode turns up on the dvd entitled Parsley and Friends and the Herbs, also though, I read somewhere else that three series of The Herbs were made, so that should mean there are more episodes out there just waiting to be put onto dvd! I do hope so!
Anyhow it still doesn't explain why Sir Basil's fishing episode is not listed on any of the current ones. I hope that we can see the whole lot soon. I think this is one of the best children's series ever made!
