Judge David Johnson once had a bad case of the Doodlebops, but some penicillin cleared it right up.
The horror…the horror!
Somewhere, deep beneath Earth's crust, in the middle of a barren stretch of Nevada desert, a top-secret government science facility has begun extensive genetic experimenting, looking at the feasibility of combining musicians with watercolors and yarn. That is the only reasons I can come up with to understand the existence of the Doodelbops, one of the most freakish kids entertainment group I've ever seen. And that's saying a lot. I've watched Boobah.
The Doodlebops tells the story of three bipedal, English-speaking, musically-talented creatures of a yet-to-be-determined species who cohabitate in a clubhouse and have plastic hair. Deedee (Lisa Lennox), Rooney (Chad McNamara) and Moe (Jonathan Wexler) love to goof around their house, playing hide and seek with each other, singing off-the-cuff songs, pulling ropes that magically dump water on their heads, riding the bus, and putting on live concerts for unsuspecting children. The show is bright, colorful, energetic and bat-@#$% insane.
This "Rock & Bop" collection features four episodes, apparently tie together with the theme of "rocking" and "bopping," but as far as I can tell, with my admittedly limited exposure to the show, is they are all about that.
Episodes follow fairly strict routines: Rooney and DeeDee emerge from their bedrooms and try to find Moe who's hiding, the three do their Doodlebop pledge, Moe pulls the rope and gets soaked, they talk to Mazz (Kim Roberts), the feisty, rhyming Afrtican-Amerian lady who randomly saunters into their house, play with some nightmarish puppets, jump on the bus, sing, dance, and end up on stage for a live show where they sing and dance some more.
The four episodes:
• "All Together Now"
• "High and Low"
• "Junk Funk"
• "What Did You See Today"
So these guys freak me out and their relentless zeal for pronounced facial expressions and wild gesticulations proves too much for my small brain to take, but I guess the kids love them, so what can you do? You are powerless to resist The Doodlebops. But don't worry—it will be all over in 90 minutes.
Extras include sing-a-longs, knock-knock jokes and music videos.
