We had Corduroy on VHS when I was little. We used to put it on when it was raining or needed to be entertained. We watched so intently - Mum loved it because we went dead quiet from the moment it went on - listening and watching intently.
Time passed, we grew up, moved out of home, got married, then the pitter patter of tiny feet. We asked Mum to pull out Corduroy to show the next generation ... and she had to admit that she'd lent it to a friend who had accidentally taped over it!
I searched for it on the net and could only find this version. From the cover I thought it was a cartoon version but figured it was better than nothing so ordered it. When it arrived, we put it in the DVD player crossing our fingers that it would have some of the magic of the original. We held our breath ... and were delighted; it was the original 1986 version of Corduroy!!
As for the other stories? Just icing on the cake!
This DVD is a must for any kids (and grown up kids) collection!
