Reviewed on 11/25/2018...
A series born on the wings of the breeze about a world long gone, a period of television long deceased, where such quality and innocence was valued. Wind in the Willows ran for five seasons from 1984 to 1990, producing 65 episodes and 2 feature length movies. Unfortunately, only the movies and Season 1 and 2 have been released in the U.S. There is an 11 disc Region 0 PAL set available across the pond. This set alone, IMO, would justify the cost of a Region Free player.

Based on Kenneth Grahame's novel. Claymation this is not. The method used by Cosgrove Hall is a stop-motion animation process using scale model sets and posable character figurines. The detailed effort put forth by the production team brings these characters to life. Amazingly complex sets. You'll be amazed how detailed everything is!

This is not just for kids. It's wholesome fare the family will enjoy. I'll go so far as to say it'll relax and decompress you. The excelling way the characters treat each other is therapeutic, and cleverly comforting. In fact, you'll want a nice cup of tea or coffee, maybe some toast with jelly, or jammy dodgers. A cozy crocheted accoutrement. There's the occasional little song in these episodes, which you'll never be able to get out of your head for the rest of your life. Do yourself a favor. Wind in the Willows is worth it's weight, and much more.

Movie Reviews

A show for all ages.

"When your teenage sons ask to watch Wind in the Willows as a family, you know the show is something very special. My 17 and 14 year old video game junkies do just that.

Sweet, clever, beautifully done, and amusing- they are wonderful for adults as well as children, but sharing them as a family cannot be beat.

59 years old and I love these wonderful shows.

"I had the Disney channel when I lived in Tampa and started watching these with my kids. I found them absolutely charming and the best pressure relievers you can buy. They just make all the cares of the world go away for a short time. I have purchased all of the BBC productions and wonder when season's 3, 4, etc. will be out. Please speed them along."

"These are as wonderful as the first set. We are hoping you will soon offer Wind in the Willows - The Complete Third Series because we want them for ourselves as well as our great-grandchildren."
