Review:

This DVD features some great episodes from classic Kid’s TV. My favourite episodes on this DVD are Naughty Zippy (Rainbow) and The Four Tasks of Danger Mouse (Danger Mouse). Some of the screen navigation does look a bit cheap, but this is understandable since it has been made by a small company. There are no special features, which is a shame as another DVD from the same company (Classic Kids Hits from School Disco) had interviews with Brian Cosgrove talking about the creation of Danger Mouse and Chorlton and the Wheelies.

Overall, I think this is a good DVD with a good selection of episodes. Though, it is a bit expensive on Amazon at £9.85. But I managed to pick mine up for £1 at a charity shop.
