Older setting gives anew angle

My daughter is going through the episodes quickly and seems to be enjoying the story. The 60's setting makes it bit different for modern kids, has a historical benefit and is change from a lot of the rubbish she sees on Youtube and TikTok. Good clean entertainment for tweens. The sets are a bit lo-budget, but it does not bother her.
