Shun your Shakespeare, chuck away your Chaucer, destroy your DVDs of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle! You've got to make shelf space for the complete box set of Maid Marian and her Merry Men. Never has so much fun and lunacy been crammed into one small cardboard container. If you tried to squeeze in even one more tiny joke, it would squash the others so badly they'd jump out and run home crying to their mummies.

Marvel at the relatively young Tony Robinson's hilarious cavortings in the days before he got boring and started digging holes in the mud; watch the hysterically laid back Danny John Jules and realise there is life after Red Dwarf. Gasp at incredible six foot chickens, listen rapt to tales of volcanoes that spew forth mauve custard, and run away terrified from snailiens from outer space.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be sick into a small paper bag and still come back for more...honest!

The Complete Series One: It's a little known fact that Robin Hood was a complete wimp who took all the credit for the grit in Maid Marian's guts. It was, in fact, she who assembled and fought oppression with a bunch of prats known as the Merry Men-a dwarf called Little Ron, a Rastafarian, an ugly dolt by the name of Rabies and a yuppie called Robin of Kensington. Doing incredibly brave things like piercing their ears and rescuing tadpoles, Marian and her men combat the cruelty of a mad, bad king called John and his villainous Sheriff of Nottingham.

The Complete Series Two: Prepare to be horrified by the beastly Beast of Bolsover and the foul things he does to our beloved Sheriff. Laugh your hands and feet off as the stupid villagers don brown noses in aid of charity. Learn to loathe Maid Marian's nemesis, Rotten Rose, she's scheming, manipulative, revengeful and a bit of a slapper. This is entertainment at its nauseating best!

The Complete Series Three: Six spanking episodes in which our heroine struggles against aliens, wrestles with giant jelly babies, and gets really hacked off with very thick villagers. Also featuring an additional hour-long episode in which she falls in love with a complete plonker. Not so smart now, are you Marian?

The Complete Series Four: In this, the final series of the muddy extravaganza that is Maid Marian and her Merry Men, Rabies grows wings, Robin turns nasty and the peasants celebrate High Forks night, 'Remember! Remember! the 27th of April.' To quote Robin Hood himself, this series is 'as funny as Russell the Abbot.'

 As good as I remember.

It's rare that how you remember something being is actually what it is like. I have had many experiences where I was certain that a film or program was the best thing every made then when I have watched them again years later have no idea what I ever saw in them the first time around. This was not a disappointment, if anything it is better than I remember, there are some lines in here that I would have missed as a kid. Brilliantly written with just the right amount of silly. The songs in each episode are great and I think was one of the first of its type to have songs. If you enjoy Horrible Histories you will love this.
