Wow .... I hadn't seen Metal Mickey since 1985. When I was 15 my family moved to Sharjah and Metal Mickey was one of the very very few English programs broadcast on Dubai TV.

All these years since returning to Australia (where I have never found anyone who has even heard of the series), all these years I have wondered whether I just had such fond memories of Metal Mickey as there was little else to watch.

Well today I finally received my DVD copy of Metal Mickey (Series 1) from Amazon UK. Needless to say I couldn't wait to watch it.

I am very happy to say that Metal Mickey is as charming and hilarious as I remember. 23 years later I still enjoyed it.

Some episodes are only moderately funny (like the Pilot episode), but overall it is very funny. The running gags about beetroot, declining loans, boggie-ing etc are not tiresome. Granny, dad and Metal Mickey are the stars of course.

The episode when Metal Mickey is kidnapped, Granny comes to his rescue and is kidnapped herself and Father joyfully refuses to pay the 10 pound ransom for both of them is the standout episode of Series 1 for me.

Metal Mickey is a sitcom that would appeal to everyone (young and old) and I for one cannot wait for Series 2 on DVD.
