Oh that voice! Oh what memories!

Any additional comments?

I loved this as a child and it just brought back so many memories! I don't know if children today would enjoy it as they are wired differently, but, for the child in many adults, I think it's worth getting and listening to. You know... just to remind you of the good ol' days!

Nostalgic!

This is just as I remember. I highly recommend it. My children are also enjoying it and prefer this to the remake film made a few years back.
