"Together in the backyard again, in the place where we belong, where we'll probably sing a song, and we'll maybe dance along."
Well, here we go again with another installment of the The Backyardigans from Nickelodeon. Who are these life forms? They are Pablo (a blue penguin), Tyrone (an orange moose), Uniqua (a pink, polka-dot creature of unique origin), Austin (a purple kangaroo), and Tasha (a yellow hippopotamus). The five use their imagination to create adventures in their backyards and homes. In this land of make believe the members of the group assume different professions and personalities, traveling across the globe and through time. Each adventure is filled with song and dance numbers.
The Backyardigans: Mighty Match-Up! features four episodes from
Season 3 of the series:
The video and audio are flawless. The animation is bright and detailed. The audio delivers loud and clear sound. The only extras are a couple of music videos.
Does my judgment really matter? This is a series that features dancing and singing animated animals. It is inoffensive, but not particularly educational. And, as I have noted in my previous review of The Backyardigans, adults will grow weary (or worse) of the repetitive nature of the show quickly (and I know that I felt like kicking in my television on more than one occasion). However, adults shouldn't be watching this show; youngsters are the target audience and they love this stuff. So, get ready to pony up some money, unless you have managed to raise kids that prefer to play outside, read, or engage in other more productive activities.
