Round the Twist is on video all right. My kids had the first series tapes
and watched them nearly bald (the tapes, not the kids...) - the thing is,
adults like them too. IMO the first series was the best - mainly because the
original Mr gribble and the original Tiger were better. Mark Mitchell (Mr
Gribble #2) is a very popular actor, but to me he over-plays the role. Might
be the Director's doing, of course. I think, from memory, the acting was
less OTT from all the cast early on.
