Better than a Dream!
21 December 2006 | by ian-1211See all my reviews

This remarkable cartoon series from 1990 goes to the top of my wish list for a return! It was created by Michael Jupp and produced by Martin Gates (he also produce another childhood favourite of mine "The Wind in the Willows: The Adventures of Mole") and with this animated T.V series's state of the art animation and beautiful songs it blew me away! It follows the tale of Rufus, an Nook who are cuddly, friendly and hard working creatures who assist the Dream Maker who help to bring sweet dreams to the world but the Lord of Nightmare has other ideas, he wants nightmares to rule! Only the Dream Maker with the help of the magical Dream Stone can stop along with Rufus at his side and not to mention his pet Albert, a goldfish with a doggy attitude! This has captured my heart and I want it so much to return to terrestrial television! 10/10
