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.

Join Mr Funny, Mr Dizzy, Mr Bump, Mr Fussy, Mr Topsy-Turvy and Mr Small in these delightful tales for children - and adults. Mr Funny's car is a shoe! It looks very funny when he drives to the zoo. But can he cheer up the animals? Mr Dizzy always gets things confused, until one day he happens upon a wishing well... Mr Bump tries his hand at many jobs, but keeps getting fired! Will he ever bump into one that's suitable for him? Mr Fussy is a fussy old fusspot who dusts his flowers and irons his shoelaces!

This is just how I remember it on the TV. I enjoy them with my own children now. They also get excited trying to guess which Mr Man we'll get to meet next. Highly recommended.
