I still had a little bit of birthday money left and with it I bought a few DVDs on the cheap. Why they were so cheap I will never know, but for me they're of great value. You see, I'm very nostalgic about the series that I've bought, the first of which is pictured to the left. Anyone who's watched the BBC during the eighties will probably know it: The trap door.
It's a silly claymation show about monsters living in the dungeon of a castle, trying to take care of a bigger monster while trying to keep other monsters at bay. Yes, that's a lot of monsters ^_^ Each episode only lasts for a few minutes and it's all very light hearted. I used to love it as a kid and I'm sure that our future offspring will be at least amused by all the bright colours :D I've included the show's opening at the bottom of this post.
The other two shows are Ulysses 31 and the classic anime Nils Holgersson. The first being a French/Japanese retelling of the Greek epos in a sci-fi setting. We -loved- this show as kids and I've been on the lookout for good DVDs for at least ten years now. And it only cost me ten pounds for the whole box! The latter is a Swedish folk tale that ran on Dutch TV when I was very young. Some folks may remember it for the young boy who got shrunken by magic to travel with a flock of geese.
