I have been asked regularly to buy children’s dvds which are both nostalgic for adults and appropriate for the whole family. Many of today’s programmes are not what you would call good general family entertainment.
I am very careful with my selection of dvds: tv shows, cartoons, documentaries.
I have been asked many times by children to buy I dream of Jeannie, Bewitched, Get Smart, etc, (those new shows on GO and Gem, etc.). I have bought as many of these shows that are available.
Lately, shows like Little House on The Prairie (which is based on literature and true stories) and The Waltons (which is based on the true stories of the Hamner Family) have become in demand. Old tv shows like Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, Lost in Space, H R Pufnstuf and old cartoons like Yogi Bear, Scooby Doo, The Flintstones and The Jetsons are popular too.
I do buy all of the latest kids’ movies, good children’s documentaries and ABC tv programmes. Some are harder to buy than others, or take a while to come in on order. Please be patient, we usually buy in multiple copies and they will come in as soon as we can get them.
We buy G, PG and E rated dvds for the Children’s Library.
If you wish to request a particular title for purchase, please let us know and we will buy them for you .
The Flintstones is an iconic television cartoon and for many, an iconic television show of any genre. This is a double dose of The Flintstones, Christmas style. The first episode has been played many times on television, but the second one, A Flintstone Family Christmas is a little more rare and very up to date for a Stoneage Family. Despite the fact that the Stoneage was B.C, Christmas is celebrated in Bedrock by The Flintstones. A Flintstone Family Christmas can be enjoyed by the whole family: there are lines that will appeal to both adults and children. Bam Bam and Pebbles are all grown up and are married with children of their own. Fred and Wilma take in a homeless delinquent for Christmas and Fred and Barney head into their usual chaotic, farcical situations. Pebbles and Bam Bam and the kids are stuck at an airport due to bad weather and are having trouble getting through for Christmas from Hollyrock.
The Flintstones was a ground breaking tv show. It celebrated many firsts on television. This is a cartoon that the whole family can enjoy.

Mayor H.R. Pufnstuf and the other residents of Living Island try to help young Jimmy, shipwrecked and led to their island, escape the evil clutches of Witchiepoo, a zany witch who wants to steal Jimmy’s talking flute for her collection of magical objects. But even as Jimmy tries to keep his talking flute out of Witchiepoo’s evil grasp, he is also trying to find his way back home.
A funny, colourful tv series from the late 60’s/early 70’s. Nostalgic for the older generation, a world of imagination for the little ones.
