Amazing series
19 June 2018 | by adefreitasforresterSee all my reviews

If you consider yourself a fan of the media, don't miss this! The special effects are the best I've ever seen in a TV series and the characters are very well written.

Grandpa is one of the most interesting characters in TV history but Jason Mason steals the show. It's as if you were watching a real 11 year old. I'm so disappointed that this series ended so soon. Also, Mr Whoops is incredibly funny. You thought Tom and Jerry was the pinnacle of physical and slapstick comedy? Ha!

All in all, Grandpa in my pocket is a very well rounded series. Great special effects, characters, writing and music.
