Ratings & Reviews

  • A solid, child-friendly work which will keep little ones content, if not mesmerised. show more

  • Efficiently short, charming, mildly scary in unimportant ways, and occasionally very funny. It's a perfect show for the very, very young who take their cartoons seriously. show more

  • There is one lovely character, though - Orville the albatross, who runs an airline service armed with goggles, scarf, and a sardine tin for his passengers to sit in. show more
