Ok, it's not the 70's Roobarb and Custard, but apart from the title music changing it pretty much remains very faithful to the 70's version. It still has Richard Briers narrating, and still has the same sketchy anmation, and still has the birds laughing, and still has the same crackpot ideas. In fact, as kids shows go today, I wish they were all as good as this. Still blinkin' marvellous. If you aint seen it, go on, treat your kids; you (I mean they) will love it.
