All Rise...

Judge David Johnson wore a tux on the first day of school. He was beaten mercilessly.

The Charge

Get ready for the first day of school with your preschool pals from Nickelodeon.

The Case

I'm going to just go ahead an issue a preemptive apology for this review. It's sweltering in our house tonight and I got hit in the head twice playing basketball today so I'm not feeling tip-top. But I've got to get this disc turned around, so, well, here we go.

The First Day of School is a collection of some of Nickeldoeon's hit kids shows, with the episodes tied together by the theme of—you guessed it—the first day of school. Here's the batting order:

Dora the Explorer: "First Day of School"
Dora, Boots and Tico go to school and learn Spanish and herald the coming of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Go Diego Go!: "Linda the Librarian"
When Linda the Llama needs to drop off her library books off she calls on Diego and his goofy talking map to help.

Blue's Clues: "Blue Takes You to School"
Blue the Dog continues his ruthless psychological torture of Joe by forcing him to solve the mystery of his favorite part of school.

Wonder Pets!: "Off to School"/ "Save the Pangaroo"
It's Baby Blowfish's first day at preschool and the nightmarish Wonder Pets are here to make sure it's a memorable one.

Ni Hao, Kai-Lan: "Lulu Day"
Kai-Lan, the adorable animated Chinese girl goes on a play date and I don't know what that has to do with school.

I'm slipping into unconsciousness now…so I'll wrap it up. This is a collection aimed at the Nick Jr. crowd, and there's a decent enough assortment to keep them entertained. The rest of it: full frame, stereo, nothing else.

The Verdict

Not Guil…
