Navigate the high seas with the mighty Backyardigans! Available on DVD March 8, 2011
The Backyardigans are highly requested viewing in our home for both my preschooler and toddler so we were happy to receive a preview of the Backyardigans’ new compilation of pirate-themed episodes. For those of you not familiar, in every episode of The Backyardigans, five high-spirited neighbors meet in their adjoining backyards and use their imaginations to transform themselves into different locations for epic adventures. Each half-hour episode of this Emmy Award-winning show features a unique music/dance genre with four original songs, along with real choreographed movements recreated in animation.
Pirate Camp: Captain Austin trains Uniqua and Pablo at Pirate Camp with garage-band music blasting. But training takes a turn for the worst when a fearsome ghost (Tasha) captures the great pirate captain.
Pirate Treasure: Captain Uniqua and Captain Austin sail the high seas in search of treasure with reggae playing. If they don’t beat Captain Pablo and Captain Tyrone to it, they will have to walk the plank.
Sinbad Sails Alone: Set sail for adventure and mambo as Sinbad (Tyrone) encounters rough waters. Siren (Uniqua), and Medusa (Tasha)! The fate of the ship is in bumbling First Mate Pablo’s hands.
The Tale of the Not-So-Nice Dragon: The Not-So-Nice Dragon snatches up King Pablo and his Mighty Knights. Now it’s up to the Flighty Fairy (Tasha) and the Grabbing Goblin (Austin) to rescue them!
Both my son and daughter were entranced by the pirate adventures of The Backyardigans. Since we are regular viewers of the show on the Nick Jr channel they already knew the introductory song and choreography so jumped to their feet to dance as soon as I hit the play button. Both kids are now peppering their daily observations with some pirate terminology – aye, aye matey; shiver me timbers; walk the plank; the Jolly Roger. I’m still working on a suitable response when my four-year-old wants to know why pirates have hooks and peg legs. The entire running time of all four episodes is 98 minutes but since each is an independent episode we watched in half hour chapters.
Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment, The Backyardigans: We Arrr Pirates DVD’s suggested retail price is $16.99.
