The Complete Roobarb and Custard DVD


With its famously ?wobbly' animation, wacky theme music and gloriously silly word play, the original 1974 series of Roobarb won instant acclaim and the hearts of some 7 million teatime viewers. And not all of them were children! Now on DVD together for the very first time, the original 30-episode 1974 series and the second series made over a quarter of a decade on have lost none of their surreal charm and sheer silliness. Created by Grange Calveley, the lovably loopy Roobarb's boundless enthusiasm gets him into all sorts of hilarious scrapes and he's constantly hindered as well as helped by his best friend Custard the cat. Such has been their popularity over the decades that the green and pink duo were voted ?Britain's Best Animated Cartoon Characters' in 2000 an accolade that led to the creation of Roobarb and Custard Too. Of course, as well as the famously hand-drawn style the gently twinkling voice of the late Richard Briers CBE has a great deal to do with the show's enduring appeal it's impossible to imagine Roobarb with any other voice!
