Editorial Reviews

BOB & MARGARET is based on the Academy Award-winning short film "Bob's Birthday", created by David Fine and Alison Snowden. BOB & MARGARET focuses on the ordinary lives of a middle class dentist and his foot doctor wife. Together, they tackle such traumas as being burglarized, going on a package holiday and deciding whether or not having a child will ruin their lives. They do all this with a gentle restraint and a keen sense of the absurd. BOB & MARGARET provides a whole new way to look and laugh at life's ordinary occurrences that we all experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long overdue... Bob & Margaret - Season 1 December 9, 2009
By Chloe
Format:DVD
All I can say is... it's about time! This is a highly underrated, yet thoroughly enjoyable show. Better than most of its genre. Bob & Margaret is a one of a kind show which I followed avidly on Comedy Central almost a decade ago. Sadly it's become most obscure since then. A brief run on showtime, but otherwise, this show hasn't been in circulation in the states for years & years, alas.

It'll be exciting to see this from the very beginning. I bought the DVD set of complete season 2 episodes which is currently out in Canada, but to have season set 1 as a companion piece would be excellent. I'm also looking forward to & hoping to see seasons 3 & 4, & hopefully not too long between releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally!! March 9, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting for Bob & Margaret to come out on DVD forever. Now that Season 1 is available, I guess we will just have to wait a few more years for the other seasons. What a shame? Love this show!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally I got it, but... April 26, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First of all I must say that I was so excited when I saw this DVD was available to purchase here on Amazon. I've been looking for this series since I watched on the channel Locomotion here in Mexico City and I absolutely fall in love with this cartoon. Here in Mexico, this program was broadcasted in Spanish and in English (with SAP option), so, when I checked the product details and I saw "Spanish" as a language of audio, I assumed it was the original language that Locomotion broadcasted... but... NO. Amazon should specify in this kind of items what kind of language are availables, becuase the Spanish language IS NOT THE ORIGINAL audio that Locomotion broadcast this series. Bob & Margaret in Locomotion were transmitted in Spanish language (from Spain), and this DVD is featured with audio in Spanish (but from Argentina), and this is extremly sad. For all of us who watched this and know how to understand this british humor, it was 100% better to use the Spanish (from Spain) than other one, even the acclaimed Mexican dubbing WILL NOT work on this kind of series.

So, please take this as a warning before purchase this item. The product is amazing, the DVD covers are good and the video and sound quality are great, even this Spanish (from Argentina) is ok, but if you think puchasing this item will bring old Locomotion memories, you're wrong and you will be disappointed in that aspect.

All the others aspects, deserve the best. That's why I put 4 stars instead 5, because all the Latin American who enjoyed this cartoon in Locomotion will be disappointed when the discover the audio "Spanish" is not the spanish we were expected.

Sorry if my english is not perfect, but I'm from Mexico.

Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this show!!! February 6, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I own the first 2 seasons. A few years ago, Showtime was set to air all 4 seasons but pulled the plug after only 3 episodes. I can't understand why no network will run this. It's the best animated series ever. I truly hope that seasons 3 & 4 will be available on DVD at some point.
I WANT MY BOB & MARGARET!

Update: I originally owned the first season on VHS but one of my tapes snapped off in the VCR while we were watching on Thanksgiving. So thrilled to finally have the first 2 seasons out on DVD. Hoping to see 3 and 4 in the VERY near future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cartoon For Grown-Ups. May 9, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This 2-DVD set contains all 13 episodes of Bob & Margaret, a British cartoon from 1998-2000, created by Alison Snowden and David Fine. It's absolutely hilarious! Each episode runs about 23 minutes.

For the unfamiliar, this is a cartoon, not necessarily for adults, but indeed for grown-ups. It's all about those everyday professional and personal situations many of us find ourselves in. Bob Fish, a dentist, and his wife, Margaret, a chriopodist, are a childless middle-aged couple who live in a suburb of London with their dogs, William and Elizabeth. Socially, it's in the same vein as, say, "Doc Martin" and "Keeping Up Appearances". With respect to price, it's a great bargain!
