All Rise...

There's a party in Judge David Johnson's tummy.

The Charge

All about the delicious and nutritious.

The Case

Nickelodeon has another selection of its big name shows—both new and old—tied together with a similar theme. You know how this works. Nick picks a category, crawls through its vaults, and unearths episodes that are connected to it, no matter how loosely. This time, it's all about "food."

Dora the Explorer—"El Dia de las Madres"
It's Mother's Day and Dora is making a cake. She and Boots need help collecting ingredients.

Go Diego Go!—"Green Iguana Helps Abuelito Plant a New Strawberry Farm"
A green iguana helps Abuelito plant a new strawberry farm.

Wonder Pets!—"Save the Bee / Save the Squirrel"
It sounds like the title of a Heroes episode, but, not, the weirdo cut-out Wonder Pets take on two special missions: to help a bee make honey and then extricate a squirrel from cotton candy at Coney Island. I did not make any of that up.

Blue's Clues—"The Grow Show"
Here's an old one from the Steve files. Help him crack the case and find out what vegetable Blue is trying to grow outside.

Yo Gabba Gabba!—"Eat"
The Gabba crew gets a party started in their tummies—and you're invited! No cover charge!

Ni Hao, Kai-lan—"Happy Chinese New Year!"
Kai-lan and her pals are chosen to carry the dragon costume for Chinese New Year. Wait, how is this related to food?

An eclectic selection, some shows having more to do with food than others, but whatever, DJ Lance is in the house, representing. As is the case with these compilations, the video quality ranges from adequate (Yo Gabba Gabba!) to terrible (Blue's Clues). But I doubt your toddler will mind. The specs: full frame, 2.0 stereo and a pair of music videos from Team Umizoom.

The Verdict

Not Guilty. I'll pass on the carrots and cabbage. Slide me a banger.

Did we give Nick Jr. Favorites: Food With Friends a fair trial? yes / no
