I try not to let my kids (2 & 4) watch much TV, but when we do, it's Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers, or Oswald. This is a wonderful little show, very, very well done. It's a sweet, slow pace, not frantic like some other cartoons, and the moral themes of the show (it's more fun if we all share, help your friends and they will help you, sometimes things get broken but you can say your sorry) never feel forced. The voice talent is excellent, and I love that there is a recognizable diversity in the voices. Johnny Snowman sounds like an African American man, without this being pointed out or made a token of in any way. It's just the way it is in Oswald's world, as is every inhabitant being a different species. The characters reflect the moods we all have on different days, and kids especially struggle with (sweetly but overly-exuberant Daisy, borderline obsessive-compulsive Henry, shy Pongo). The music is especially wonderful, again in contrast to many animated series. It is real, orchestral instruments, playing simple yet musical melodies, and Oswald sings along about whatever he is dealing with in that episode, showing how kids can incorporate music into their own daily lives. There is just enough humor for older kids and parents to keep it lively, but never interfereing with the sincerity of the show. (The "white elephant" joke cracks me up every time.) Also, there is no merchandising onslaught, which is so rare.
Beautiful, beautiful show. We'd love to see all episodes released on DVD. We love these, but our favorites, like the Pet Show and Going Fishing, are not on these.

Oswald the world's favourite octopus! I have all the Oswald dvds, which are two region 1 dvds, and two region 2 dvds. I watched the region 2 first (living in the UK) and then purchased the two region 1 dvds and was very surprised to find that they have used American accents on the region 1, and then I realised it's because they were made that way to begin with and for the region 2 releases they have used British accents. Henry the Penguin sounds slightly more refined with his British accent and a little gangsterish with the American one, but it is not at all off-putting and one soon gets used to it. I don't know why they put out different stories for different countries and with different voices, - though oddly enough, the egg twins sound the same on both regions. Presumably all Oswald's stories where originally made with American voices so it seems odd that only some stories are available on region 1 and others only on region 2 with British voices dubbed over the originals. I wonder why they did that? It's quirky to be able to compare both. It looks as though the stories on the region 1 dvds and the stories on the region 2 dvds are not available in the other region, that is, if you want to see the story where Oswald makes the birthday cake, or the one where his tap springs a leak, you only have the option to see them on the region 2 discs, and if you want to see the hilarious story where Henry's cousin comes to stay, or where Oswald tries to watch tv with Henry and at the same time use the swimpool in the garden with Daisy, you will only be able to see those stories on the region 1 dvds, so you will need a multi region player to watch them all on, (Who hasn't got one?! LOL). Maybe they will eventually put out all the stories with a choice of the British or American voices.Read more ›

Both of my daughters have absolutely loved this DVD series !! My oldest one is now six, and still watches it when I put it on for the younger one!
It's a little slower paced so it doesn't have all the fast movements of a lot of the cartoons today. Plus for us adults, it's Fred Savage that does the voice of Oswald. ;)

My whole family have enjoyed Oswald for a long time, now. Unfortunately it doesn't appear anywhere on Nickelodeon anymore, as far as we can tell.

Now that we've come to this point, we only have these DVDs to pull out on a rainy day. They have some of our most favorite stories. The only disappointment is that, as is all too common with cartoon shows, this is an incomplete set. We would love to have the whole series, but have to settle for only one scoop of Swizzleberry Swirl. Still a must for fans, though.

Oswald is very polite even when his friends aren't. I would still give this five stars even though his friends Henry and Daisy don't truly take the blame for their part in things that go wrong. That can be the part the parents point out. Also the parents can point out the fact that penguins don't come from the "Frozen North". Oswald is very lovable looking and pleases my 1-year-old baby. She smiles as if seeing an old friend when I put this on.

I purchased this for my granddaughter (oldest) as her younger sister is going to turn one and will get all of the attention and presents. which were previosly all my older granddaughters. Maybe Oswald will make it up just a little, because she is only four years old!Thank you Amazon!!!!!!!
