Mary, Mungo and Midge

Недавно дочка наткнулась в сети на великолепный мультик, который мы теперь обе смотрим с огромным удовольствием. Это мультсериал о девочке Мэри и её питомцах: собаке Манго и мышонке Мидже, снятый в 1969 году компанией BBC. Все серии озвучены диктором телекомпании, а роль Мэри сыграла дочь художника мультипликатора Джона Райана (John Ryan).

Каждая серия длится около 15 минут и содержит повторяющуюся лексику. Например, начало:

A town is full of buildings, some tall, some short, some wide and some narrow.
The buildings are flats, and houses, and factories, and shops.
They're built in streets.
The streets have cars, and buses and lorries driving along them.
The cars and the buses and the streets are full of people,
in fact there are a lot of people in a town.
Do you live in a town?
Mary, Mungo and Midge live in this town.
They live with Mary's Mother and Father in this tall block of flats.
They live right at the top. There are eight flats built on top of each other.
Mary, Mungo and Midge live in the flat with the flowers growing in the window box.
There's Mary, there's Mungo and there's Midge.
Mary, Mungo and Midge have a large sunny room to play in, a room full of games, picture books and toys.

Мульфильм отличается ярко выраженной тематичностью. Каждая серия посвящена какой-то одной теме и раскрывает её очень подробно. Чтобы вам было легче ориентироваться, приведу выдержки из Википедии:
