    Did anyone else ever get those catalogues of books when they were a kid, from I think Random House and other companies like that? I remember getting those all the time, and then you'd just fill in what books you wanted in the form at the back, and eventually this HUGE box would arrive full of what seemed like dozens of books. Unpacking those was like Christmas to me when I was little. :D

    Catalogues eh? Surprisingly I still flick through pages of the laminated catalogues at Argos in my hometown no less. I wanna get one of those ol' Lego catalogues just to get myself a binge on sets that I grew up.

    It sounds like a mixture of Vanilla Ice's Go Ninja rap and for some reason a Paula Abdul song. Still could've been worse I suppose might've been Quack Pack.

    Yes! I actually got one of the Harry Potter books in hardback (think it was Goblet of Fire) for 5p from one of those because of how their offer was working at the time! (Would have either been World of Books or Book People).

    I think they're simply on hiatus.

    Sorry if this was posted before, but if it was, the link's down now. Anyway, this particular VHS was quite a big part of my earlier childhood, along with its circus counterpart. Though for some reason, I always preferred this. As an adult, I almost can't believe it's that short; from what I remember of being around 4, I could've sworn it was like 90 minutes. I also didn't realise back then that some songs were edited for political correctness :p.
