Judge Roy Hrab used his imagination to pretend his six floor apartment had a backyard. However, a trip to the hospital for broken ribs revealed that he was hallucinating rather than pretending.

"We've got the whole wide world in our yard to explore!"
The Backyardigans are Pablo (a blue penguin), Tyrone (an orange moose), Uniqua (a pink, polka-dot creature of unique origin), Austin (a purple kangaroo), Tasha (a yellow hippopotamus). The group of five youngsters uses their imaginations to turn their backyards and homes into fantastic adventures. In this land of make believe the members of the group assume different professions and personalities. But, most of all, each adventure is filled with lots of song and dance numbers.
The Backyardigans: High Flying Adventures! features four episodes from Season 3 of the series:
• "Fly Girl": Uniqua is a pilot delivering singing
telegrams to Pablo, Tyrone and Tasha, in 1950s music stylings.
The video and audio are pretty much perfect. The computer generated animation is bright and filled with detail while the audio delivers each song loud and clear.
The only extras are a couple of music videos.
Bright colors, catchy songs (if you're a youngster), silly and benign stories, decent quality animation, and cute characters…anything missing? Probably not, if you're a young kid. Of course, as with many children's shows, adults will grow weary after a few episodes. However, the youngsters are the target audience, so if you have any and they're fans of the The Backyardigans, get ready to pull out your wallet.
