Judge David Johnson likes the grittier, edgier Prisonyardigans.

One of Nickelodeon's signature series, The Backyardigans sports a group of painfully adorable computer generated animal characters (and one horrifying genetic abomination) going on adventures fueled by their imagination and engaging in epic musical numbers.
Four episodes on this Yule-theme disc:
• "The Action Elves Save Christmas Eve"
• "Pablor and the Acorns"
• "The Big Dipper Diner"
• "The Amazing Splashinis"
And there's your episode selection. There's only one Christmas themed episode and the remainder of the installments are just random offerings, but this is still a great little show, packed with charm and attractive animation and surprisingly catchy songs.
The DVD: full frame, stereo, a "Matching Gift" game and a music video.
