Adult's view : I really like this show. It is not threatening, tells amusing and interesting stories and avoids overbearing political correctness. In other words, just the right balance for children's television.

Overall : Heartily recommended.
The video quality is very good.
The feature is presented in a 1.75:1 aspect ratio 16x9 enhanced which is probably the original aspect ratio.
The picture was clear and sharp throughout, with no evidence of low level noise. There is some light grain throughout.
The colour was wonderful, rich and solid throughout.
The only noticeable artefact was some very mild aliasing.
There are no subtitles, despite what the case says.
The audio quality is very good.
This DVD contains an English Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo soundtrack encoded at 224 Kb/s.
Dialogue was clear and easy to understand and there was no problem with audio sync.
The music is a lot of fun and the theme tune is very jovial.
The surround speakers and subwoofer were not used.
