But then when it didn't appear in the US either I began to wonder if I would ever see my favourite mouse speak in English. You can imagine my surprise when this DVD appeared on Amazon Canada.
Let me just say that kids (and adults) will love this if they are a fan of the books.
*The DVD is zone and region free. That is it can be screened on all DVD players around the world.
*It comes with a 16 page booklet outlining each episode and also has biographies of the main characters.
*The set comes with 2 DVDs and spans the first 13 episodes of Season 1 (season 2 is in the works already)
*The DVD shows the cartoon in widescreen (yay) which is great for big TVs
So thanks Amazon Canada for making this available, to the animators for all their hard work, to the producers who put it together and to Elisabetta Dami for her inspiration.
Lastly thanks to Geronimo Stilton for being a brave and generous mouse.
This is a rare exception. While obviously NOT being aimed at grown-ups, it has sophisticated dialogue and great serious voice acting, something older people could appreciate. If you are watching this with your (or any) kid, you won't be much bored (unless you are allergic to cartoons).
The stories are mostly adventure comedy/mystery at heart. Geronimo Stilton is a journalist, and his job takes him all over the world. Tintin, anyone? He is very much a house mouse, does not like too much excitement. However, he is sort of forced into it, much to his relatives' enjoyment. He has a younger sister Thea, cousin Trap, and nephew Benjamin. There is also Pandora, a girl who happens to be Benjamin's friend.
See, where it goes? A man, woman, a boy and a girl,- a perfect team tor a cartoon. Now that's how you create a cast for a family show! As I mentioned before, the show is adventure with an occasional element of mystery. Half the time the answer is obvious, other times you couldn't guess what will happen next. Nicely done! The stories are mostly simple at heart, but the clever dialogue, interesting characters, superb voice work, along with a bit of social commentary here and there, makes it worth watching even if you are NOT a child. (You can be one at heart though)
If you love 2D animation, you will be pleased with the show's production qualities. By the looks of it, flash animation was either not used at all, or very little. By the way, the quality of the DVD is outstanding. The picture is very smooth, and the resolution is high.
The DVD is in NTSC format, but multi-regional, meaning it could be played anywhere in the world.Read more ›
