The Case

Hola, I'm Judge Roy Hrab! I'm a DVD reviewer for DVD Verdict. I'm going to write a review of Go, Diego, Go!: Moonlight Rescue. Do you want to help me? You do? Muchos Gracias!

To start my review I need the DVD, but I don't know where it is. Will you help me find it? Where is it? Is it in the toaster? No. Is it in the food processor? No, that's silly! Is it in the DVD player? There it is! Yay!

Let's begin!

Go, Diego! Go! is a spin-off of Dora the Explorer (Diego and Dora are cousins). In this almost exclusively educational series, Diego helps rescue animals in distress while teaching children some Spanish. Diego and his crew (which includes a talking camera and backpack) frequently invite the viewer to participate in the show through questions, for example, asking for directions or where an animal is located. A short quiz about the episode's feature animal is asked at the end of each show. Diego and his friends almost always speak in exclamatory sentences.

So, let's watch the episodes on Go, Diego, Go!: Moonlight Rescue! How many episodes are there? Are there two? Are there four? No. Are there three? That's right, there are three episodes. They are:

"Tuga Helps The Moon" (Double episode): Diego tells a story about the moon breaking apart, forcing him, Alicia (Diego's sister), and Tuga the leatherback sea turtle to find the pieces.

"Rainforest Rhapsody": Diego must track down the animal singers for Alicia's rainforest concert after a puma scares them away.

"Rhea Is An Animal Rescuer": Diego helps a rhea (a bird that cannot fly) with its self-confidence and rescues some animals.

This DVD has some extras. Can you tell me what they are? That's right. First, there are all the songs from the "Tuga Helps The Moon" episode. Second, there is a photo gallery of the episode's feature animals.

Well, that's about it, except for our goodbye song. Do you want to sing with me? Great! Let's go! Sing with me:

Press play! Run away!
Press play! Run away!
Leave your kids to watch this show on their own
Adults should take a nap, have a snack, or sit in the dark alone
Because if you watch this show for long
You may find yourself singing along
With Diego and his friends
Causing your common sense to reach its end
Then you'll be in need of a drink
A double bourbon straight-up is the best remedy, I think


Give us your feedback!

Did we give Go, Diego, Go! Moonlight Rescue a fair trial? yes / no
