Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Collaboration and compromise prove key to imaginative backyard adventures in this quartet of Backyardigans episodes. In "Polka Palace Party," Cowboy Tyrone's love of the tuba and polka music takes him on a journey way out west to the Cheyenne Polka Palace. Along the way, he rescues clarinet playing Uniqua, accordion playing Pablo, and drum playing Austin from their separate perils. The group eventually joins forces to form a successful four-piece polka band. When Tasha convinces Pablo, Tyrone and Uniqua to have high tea with her, the gang resigns itself to a pretty boring afternoon. Little do they know that preparing for high tea will take them into the deep jungle, to meet the Emperor of the Ming Empire, and into the vicinity of the gushing geyser in the Gobe Desert. Three Tarzans and a scientist journey through the jungle in search of the Wormy family in "The Heart of the Jungle" and it's a rough adventure on the stormy seas for Viking sailors intent on discovering a new land in "Viking Voyages." As always, The Backyardigans features lots of kid-sung music--this time in the polka, Irish, Broadway and jazz styles. Also included is the music video "Hold Tight" from the "Viking Voyages" episode. (Ages 18 months to 6 years) --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Such clever stories! Celtic Music on "High Tea" November 6, 2006
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD because it had my all-time favorite episode, "High Tea" on it, which features Celtic music and a little Irish dancing. Polka Palace Party is a very close second, though. The creators of Backyardigans keep getting better by combining creative adventures for the 5 friends with terrific song and dance numbers. The clarity of the video is so clear it's almost 3-D.

This is the third DVD of the series, and contains another four adventures of the five colorful friends known as the Backyardigans.

Polka Palace Party introduces kids to four new genres of music. The songs in the four adventures are themed to Polka, Irish folk music, Gilbert & Sullivan and Rockabilly.

Unfortunately, the grouping in this DVD puts the two slower musical themes back to back, and between "High Tea" with its Irish theme and "The Heart of the Jungle" based on the music of Gilbert & Sullivan, my son lost interest and barely glanced at "Viking Voyage".

Because of this, I am forced to watch Polka Palace Party repeatedly, as nobody wants to go any further.

Not the best one to get for a first purchase, but still worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Backyardigans: the best. March 26, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Backyardigans are the best kid video entertainment, and coming from a die hard Sesame Street fan that is saying a lot. I came home from work to an empty house, started fixing dinner, and thought - hmm, maybe I'll listen to the High Tea video. With no kid around! After watching it a million times!

The characters are real individuals. Pablo is hyper and frenetic, Tyrone thoughtful and smart (also a little tone deaf), Tasha bossy and authoritarian, and Austin (who is often left out of these episodes) seems to usually play the mysterious or quiet "other". Uniqua is the engine of each Yardigans episode, energetic and engaged.

The videos are long: 4 episodes = 2 hours. Each has high production values and is packed with singing, dancing, and really fine music. Especially after watching Little Einsteins, where the characters shout everything at the top of their lungs, or the Wiggles where the silliness wears thin, the Backyardigans are really refreshing. I also recommend "Snow Fort", which has the Yeti episode, one of the best.

Cookie Monster still rules.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of the best Backyardigans collection July 4, 2006
Format:DVD
Well, I don't know why some reviewers...or one reviewer is complaining about the quality, especially after admitting they have a cheap DVD player, which is probably the real problem. I've either bought outright, or borrowed from the library, each Backyardigans DVD and have never had any problems, even with the "been around the block" library ones.

The main cartoon episode on this DVD is Polka Palace Party. This episode revisits the characters as cowboys, and brings back Sherman the Worm from the Tarzan episode. This show is pretty cute, but not one of the most memorable.

The other cartoon on here is the high tea episode. I thought it was one of the poorest ones I've seen, not making much sense. When I think "High Tea", that's a British term, and yet they're going to see a Chinese Emperoress, although I understand tea is a very important thing in Asia as well, as that is where tea originated from. But overall this episode certainly didn't hold my interest, nor that of my son, and we like the Backyardigans.

The ONLY reason I would recommend this one is because of the Viking Episode. My son LOVES this one. My son wants me to sing him the "Hush Little Mermaid" song everytime he gets in the tub or bed. I love Pablo in the viking helmet, looking to discover a new land.

What it comes down to is, look at all the available DVDs, and if your child has absolute favorite episodes, just get them that particular DVD; for the rest, try your local library, then you'll know if you like it BEFORE spending your money and being disappointed.

My three year old grandson loves the Backyardigans. We watch several of the programs over and over when I visit him in Orlando.. This is "MY" favorite. Love the music. The voyage to the Polka Palace is delightful! Now when he visits me in Wisconsin, we will enjoy this one together.
