superb..................By williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 10 Jul 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]this dvd is superb. It brought back memories of when I was a little girl, that I was able to share with my children.
Mr. Benn is made up of fourteen episodes, each narrated by Ray Brooks. Each episode lasts for around fifteen minutes, and every single one involves the character venturing into his local costume shop at the start. From there, he is magically transported to a different era or setting for a brand new adventure.
The first episode, entitled The Red Knight, sees Mr. Benn donning a suit of red armour. When he enters this land of magic and sorcery, he stumbles into a depressed green dragon he feels committed to help. Another episode sees Mr. Benn travelling to the time of the cavemen, another to the far reaches of outer space.
this cartoon has a rare and unique gift ,to be able to please just about anyone, regardless of age.
On the disc is a special feature, entitled The Gladiator, which was a new episode filmed last year.
Mr Benn, is very nostalgic, for children who grew up in the 70's and 80's, with a wonderful trip down memory lane.
well worth renting out.

Re-live your childhood!By RubyG7 (23 reviews) , 05 Nov 2013If you loved this as a kid, you will still love it! I watched it with my 7 year old and was pleasantly surprised that she loved it too! It's not got a lot going for it visually (it's not even really animated more a film made from pictures) but it doesn't matter, it's the stories and the wonderful voice telling them that captivates old and young.
Stimulate Young-OnesBy CashOnTheNail (130 reviews) from Manchester , 22 Feb 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideOnce-upon-a-time daytime-TV consisted of a young 'girl' playing noughts-&-crosses [tic-tac-toe] photograph to easy-listening music; no gangster-rap or anything-like.
Mr Benn is a series-of drawings [kinda-annimation] showing regular-bloke visiting a costume-store & trying-on outfits [never-actually paying].
Leaving-by second changing-room door he had lots-of adventures.
Nothing remotely sexual-or-violent; very-nice early-learning programme to-stimulate young-ones.
great childhood flashbackBy a customer from england , 26 Oct 2009Graet laugh for my daughter who thought it was funny how bad tv for children was in the 1970's remembered watching most of them in the 70's but good fun
