Review: Sooty ABC – Learn the Alphabet DVD

I remember watching Sooty as a child and didn’t realise that Sooty and his friends were still around until I was sent a preview copy of Sooty ABC – Learn the Alphabet to review.


Sooty ABC sees Sooty, Sweep, Soo and Richard in their Alphabet Adventure, a great way to introduce children to the alphabet. It features all the fun, mayhem and slapstick capers that I have come to know and love from Sooty and his pals from years ago but this modern version LP loved as much as I did as a child – she enjoyed the characters, got involved with the adventures and asked to watch it again and again.

Sooty has always been one of Britain’s best loved children’s characters, and this special episode, which sees the gang visit Wookey Hole caves for a letter learning adventure, is sure to appeal to Sooty fans young and old. Sooty, Sweep, Soo and Richard are all on hand to take young viewers all the way from ‘A is for Apple’ to ‘Z is for Zoo’, with lots of laugh out loud comedy and humour along the way. LP really enjoyed the show and she now loves Sooty! We’ll be watching more in the future.


Disclosure: We were sent a copy of the above DVD for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.

  1. I watch stuff on YouTube with the kids that I loved when I was little. They both like Sooty and Rainbow but didn’t like Button Moon, which was my absolute favourite. I was kind of disappointed!

    They sometimes have Sooty at Cadbury World so we’ve gone along to see the show. I’m nearly 32 and I still think Sweep is hilarious!

  2. Believe it or not, I was a massive Sooty fan. I loved Harry Corbett, and then my children really enjoyed Sooty, now I want my grandchildren to be as in love with Sooty as I was and they are learning their ABC at the moment, so win win.

  3. Goodness,I feel so old,it was Watch With Mother,most people wont have even heard of it but it was over fifty years ago xx

  4. In the 1950s there was one programme each day: Picture Box, Andy Pandy, Bill and Ben, Rag, Tag and Bobtail and The Woodentops. I loved them all but my grandchildren are horrified by such a small amount of children’s programmes 🙂
