Nickelodeon unleashes another collection of its winning little kiddo-friendly musical franchise, The Backyardigans. Who are the Backyardigans? They're only the most talented, most musically-inclined band of multicultural CGI animals and one weird alien thing to ever grace your television set. They're Pablo, Tyrone, Uniqua (the weird alien thing), Tasha and Austin and they have huge imaginations and a large enough backyard to implement them in.
• "Elephant on the Run"
• "The Magic Skateboard"
• "The Flipper!"
• "Super Team Awesome!"
There you have it, four shows, 95 minutes and a boatload of charm. I like this show a lot. The music is catchy (alternative rock excluded), the characters are bright and charismatic and the computer animation is clean and full of energy. Plus that theme song—good luck getting that sucker out of your subconscious for the next five months.
The DVD: full frame, 2.0 stereo, no extras.
