TV-series #3

For the kids #1
The contemporary childrens series have nothing on these wonderfull series. They were all my favorites as a kid, and they are all my favorites now, but the first two are really special.

(every picture is linked to the series opening credits and the descriptions are taken from imdb)

The Animals of Farthing Wood
"A group of animals have to leave their home, the Farthing Wood which was destroyed by people"
My favorite series as a child (of the ones shown on television here in Norway). So sad and dramatic. Abit frightening when you are a kid, but it had a good moral told in the most beautifull way

The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends
"A magical place inhabited by disobedient bunnies, rambunctious kittens & practical hedgehogs"
My favorite series (of the ones I had on VHS). The music is so lovely and dreamy, the drawings are stunning (drawn to look like the original Beatrix Potter drawings) and the stories are so darn cute.

Chip 'n Dale Resque Rangers
"Chip and Dale, Disney's fun-loving chipmunks are re-imagined as the leaders of a team of detectives/crime-fighters, rounding out the team are two mice, Gadget Hackwrench and Monteray Jack and Zipper, a fly"
All I've got to say is: fun, fun, fun! and the song is kind of catchy

"Pingu is a clay penguin who is very mischievous and playful. He lives in the arctic where he plays with his family and his friend the seal"
Aw, I love Pingu. He is the cutest, and he still makes me laugh. With his walk and his facial expression, who can't love him? mweep mweep

Rädda Joppe
I've only got vage memories of this one, but I do know that I loved it (I used to say the catchphrase all the time, and I dont think my sister cared much for it). The same thing happenes in all the episodes: Joppe gets lost (or in another note: the boy always lose Joppe)

The Chronicles of Narnia
So much better than the movies. Ok, not as exciting as it used to be, but it still gives me a nostalgic feeling and reminds me of christmas. AND: The opening song gives me the goosebumps.

Duck Tales
"Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey and Louie find themselves in all sorts of adventures on this animated cartoon series from Walt Disney"
I still remembering Friday nights when I was little, when I came home from choir practise to watch "Disney dags" on swedish tv. Duck Tales was the highlight.

Where's Waldo?
I bet everyone has read the books. Well, this is the tv-series based on those books. It's abit quirky, but stil lots of fun. The highlight is the end, where the picture freezes and you have to find Waldo.
