Roger and the Rotten Trolls

What makes a good kids show? How about one that you can still laugh at now. A show which includes spitting image style puppets, "Jim Jam Ya Ha" and the guy from "Men Behaving Badly" -  the one that isn't "Bob the Builder". Let me introduce you to "Roger and the Rotten Trolls". One of the funniest children's shows since "Maid Marian and Her Merry Men".

Written by Tim Firth who recently wrote the script for Blackball and Calendar Girls. The first series won the 1997 Bafta for "Best Children's Entertainment Show" - indecently beating the "Ant and Dec show". I bought the videos at university when VHS was still the in thing.  We really were spoiled for great TV back when I was a kid.

Anyway sit back, relax and enjoy the first episode.
