Dream Street was a British children's television series that ran from 6 May 1999 to 2002 on CITV. The show was narrated by British comedian Russ Abbot, and was aimed at children aged from 2 to 7. The show featured talking toy vehicles, which were radio controlled in real time. The series aired back on CiTV around 2008.
The show was set in a story book resting on the bedside table, and in later series with a child holding it, of a playroom during the night, whilst the child was asleep. The room also includes an element of Dream Street within it - the teddy bear clock. In later series, the title sequence revealed more of the things within the room, such as model Saturn bedposts.
The official slogan was; "Stimulate your child's imagination!, because Dream Street is a world of magical fun!". For Series 3, the theme tune contained the lyric "Get Streetwise", as part of the road safety campaign, which was repeated at the end of the show accompanying a short promo.
CITV, the original broadcaster, repeated the series in 2008-09, but it ended shortly after. However, Mini CITV, a substandard version of CITV, are the current broadcaster of the series, along with Tiny Pop.
There have been VHS releases of the series by Carlton Video.
