Customer Review

on 17 January 2014
I bought this DVD for my daughter knowing it would be different to the Spot I remembered from being a child; I had searched everywhere for the original Paul Nicholas narrated episodes on DVD to no avail. However, unlike many of the programmes that have been updated (eg Fireman Sam, Thomas) the animation remains the same so I thought this would be okay. How wrong I was!! Jane Horrocks has absolutely ruined a lovely children's programme with her incredibly annoying narration and terrible voices. Particularly grating is her performance of "Happy Birthday" in Spot's birthday - several of her awful, toneless voices "singing" at once. So while the stories and animation are still as charming and innocent as ever, I'm afraid this DVD has to go - to the charity shop, or the bin. Why they ever felt the need to replace Paul Nicholas is beyond me.
