With 2 kids, ages 2 1/2 and 4 1/2, who love Richard Scarry books, we got the Busytown Mysteries DVD. The kids love watching them and pretending to be Huckle and Sally. The characters find clues to solve simple mysteries they encounter with each story running about 15 minutes. There are two stories per episode. Huckle and Sally are good examples of a brother and sister who treat each other with kindness and respect.

The one major drawback that prevents me from giving this 5 stars are Pig Will and Pill Won't. They are obnoxious and spend a lot of time arguing with each other. Unfortunately, their behavior is rarely addressed by the other characters and is often just laughed off. A few times Sally suggests they stop arguing, which is nice to see. We talk about the pigs behavior with our kids and ask them who is the better example of the kind of siblings they should be, the Pig Twins or Huckle and Sally, so we try to work around it.

Overall, it is a cute program that encourages kids to solve problems critically.

This show is excellent! The only reason I didn't give it full stars is that it is the same show that is on Netflix instant stream. I thought it was a different batch of Mysteries due to a different cover than the one on Netflix but it has a different order of the shows. I wish they would've kept making the show instead of stopping with the two seasons. My son loves it so much and has really gained some great vocabulary words and looks at things differently due to this show.

When there is so much garbage on TV for kids to watch, I was thrilled to see this DVD. Every episode teaches the kids how to think in order to solve a new mystery. It's thoughtful and colorful and not at all annoying for parents. We keep it in the car and it keeps the kids completely interested while they learn. This gets my highest recommendation as a parent of triplet 4 year olds.

My son just loves Busy Town. He has asked for the this DVD repeatedly in the last few weeks. The DVDs play great in our ps3 and portable DVD Player. Great wholesome cartoons. The series teaches how to critically think about problem solving. I would recommend this series to anyone.

Edit:
I picked up a couple of other DVD's in this series. Upon checking the content of this dvd it appears to be the Second Season of the Busytown Mysteries Series. I could not find a DVD that contained all of the first season.

I give this 5 stars because my little boy loves it. Truthfully, it gives me a headache.

However, it does a reasonable job of teaching lessons like observational skills, deduction, etc, all wrapped up in a "mystery show" format. We used to watch this on Netflix, but they dropped it suddenly and my son was heart broken.

Well, at least this collection was here...now my son gets his fix. And it's a good, clean show. Perfect for the 4-7 year old crowd.

This DVD is a collection of fun mystery stories using Richard Scarry's characters. I loved having this in the car for long trips out of town. I have a 4 year old and he really enjoyed watching the stories (and pretending he was Huckle Cat). I believe the collection is over 200 minutes in length so your child won't get burnt out on watching the same few stories over and over and over. I think this is well worth the money.

Kids love Busytown!!! I loved Busytown growing up and now my kids get to enjoy and love it too! We started watching episodes on Youtube, but now they can enjoy them on trips in the van. Bough Fun in Busytown, Every Day is Something New, and the Busytown Mysteries to have a complete set & they love all of them!
