Movie Reviews

Wonderful, gentle videos
Ezra Shapiro | Los Angeles sprawl | 08/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If anything you have read above appeals to you, do not hesitate. Whip out your credit card and buy every Kipper tape you can find! This is one of the few video series that requires no parental policing and can be viewed by all with delight. The stories are gentle and affectionate and are imbued with the warmth of genuine friendship. The animations are simple but charming. The plots revolve around kid-level problems that are solved with a bit of inventiveness, much consideration, and a dash of bemusement. The characters are well acted without the cloying adults-pretending-to-be-children edge that you find in many US videos; BBC regular Martin Clunes, who does the voice of Kipper, is absolutely amazing. The pacing is suited to very young toddlers yet the stories are engrossing enough for school-age kids."
Simply Entertaining

"Kipper and his friends Tiger, Pig and Arnold are the main characters in this series of stories. They have British accents, which is fun, especially when your kids imitate them, and they make playtime into an adventure in every episode. Some of the words are slang that kids may not understand at first, but from the excellent illustrations you can understand what they are saying.This DVD has seven episodes, with story lines so simple that toddlers can understand the "plot". Some of the stories have useful messages, like when Tiger refuses to go into the pool, because he can't swim and doesn't have his swim floats with him.The backgrounds are for the most part very basic, for example with just a green line on a white background, but somehow you know they are on the grass. Some are quite complex, and you can see individual blades of grass in a field. The one story that has a problem is the one when Kipper is blowing bubbles, because you can't see them clearly on the white background, but you can hear them popping. (Thanks to my JBL surround speakers)I was giving it four stars, because my son has just demanded to see it again for the fourth consecutive time today, and I've had enough, but you can't downgrade something that a child enjoys so much, so it's back to five stars.I suppose I'll have to buy the rest of the series now."
A wonderful children's cartoon!
Heather Walton | Chico, CA | 06/11/2001

"I think this tape is fantastic. I do not get cable so we can only see these types of shows on video. Kipper is a really cute dog and the 7 stories are fun and grab your attention. My baby is only 9 month's old and can sit through about 10 minutes of Kipper before she gets bored, but I wanted to see the whole show! This tape is 60 minutes long and the color and sound is supurb. I like the animals in it. Kipper and Tiger are dogs and they have pig and other animal friends. I'd say these are the best cartoons out there with stories that are positive and helpful to children. Not like the ones in my day where the animals charaters were all being attacked and bombed, or so it seemed. Kipper has fun playing and being a kid outside mostly. I adore this video and so does my baby."
A Breath of Fresh Air

"My daughter has loved Kipper since she was about 10 months old. We were shocked, when at 10 months she actually sat through three episodes of Kipper. We don't encourage a lot of TV viewing, but Kipper is always welcome in our house. It is a nice change from all the other nonsense out there. Its stories and characters are refreshing in today's fast-paced world. It has a simple animation that will be a relief from all the flashy, fast-paced cartoons. We think this lack of complexity is what first caught our daughter's attention. It isn't violent, it isn't demeaning, and it is worth every cent. I never get tired of watching it with my daughter and how many children's shows can you say that about. At 15 months, she still loves it. We own four of the Kipper DVD's now and love every one of them, but Pools, Parks, and Picnics is one of my personal favorites."
