Don't be misled by the DVD description or the description on the Disney website.

Format: DVD
GOOD: Three episodes go well together, typical Little Einstein fare, good lessons

BAD: One weak episode, no coverage of planets / space, DVD extras are worthless and not subtitled.

Little Einsteins: Race for Space comes with three episodes, one of which hasn't aired as of the DVD's initial release. One person reports it aired in Canada, however.

I understand the disappointment from other reviewers. The DVD case does say that it's two episodes plus one new one -- nothing about being an original movie like the other DVDs. The DVD also doesn't go into depth about the planets as one might thing from the title.

The never before aired episode, "The Treasure behind the Little Red Door," has kids and Rocket tracking a stolen treasure map to Hawaii. The art of the day is the Hawaii Ki'i (hula) statue and the featured song is "Funeral March of a Marionette" by Charles Francois Gounod.

After stealing the treasure map from the gang, Big Jet races pass a volcano, across the bay, and into a rain forest. The gang follows closely behind. Beware this episode contains spider webs and an ugly yellow spider with a freaky smile. It might scare kids who are afraid of insects. However, the bug doesn't bother the four-year-old critic.

"Treasure" is one of the weaker episodes in the series. The story doesn't weave together well and most of it slumps along. The story feels incomplete without truly diving into the things expected of the Little Einsteins. While this episode isn't typical Little Einstein fare, it makes sense that it comes on this DVD because of its connection to the last episode. The more important critic, the four-year-old, likes the episode.

Be aware that this DVD is not a new full-length movie, but rather a collection of three episodes. According to the packaging, one of the three episodes is nevore-before seen. However, here in Canada all three have been previously shown on TV, so none of them were new to us.

For those of you not familiar with this series, two DVD releases have full one-hour movies (Our Big Huge Adventure and Rocket's Firebird Rescue). All other DVD releases contain 3 TV episodes. Based on the product description, I was under the impression that this was a new one-hour movie, but it is not.

Furthermore, if you're expecting a space-related theme, you'll be disappointed. In the episode entitled Super Fast, they go out in space briefly, but that's it. In my opinion the title for this release is misleading as it is not space-oriented at all.

In short: no new material and overall a big disappointment as far as I'm concerned. Would not buy again had I known.

FYI the episodes on this DVD are:
- The Treasure Behind The Little Red Door (supposedly new but was shown on TV in Canada already)
- Super Fast
- The Great Sky Race Rematch

My son is 5 and LOVES little Einsteins. He watches them over and over again. He was so excited when we finally got the DVD he knew we pre-ordered it and was patiently waiting for it to come. When he finally watched it, he actually started crying-very unlike him. He said the new "space" show wasn't really about space at all. We had expected that it would be about the little Einsteins traveling from planet to planet, learning about each one. It isn't. They just happen to be traveling through space chasing/helping some little pigs. What a missed chance at teaching kids about the planets! Again-we were VERY disappointed.

My son's two favorite things in the world: 1. Little Einsteins, 2. Space. He went crazy when he saw the commercial for this new DVD. We, too, pre-ordered the movie and counted down the days until its release. And we, too, were bitterly disappointed by its contents. As the other reviewers have said, it is not a movie, and it is not about space. I would think that if Disney were going to release a space-themed DVD containing old episodes, they would at least include Galactic Goodnight. At least that one actually talked about the planets. I would not have purchased this if I would have been able to preview it before buying. :(

As mentioned by the other reviewers "The Race For Space" has nothing to do with space. My daughter is a "Little Einsteins" fanatic but when she saw that there actually wasn't a movie or episode called "The Race For Space" she was absolutely disappointed. Let me tell you, if I knew that there was only one new episode on this DVD I never would have wasted my money on it. We have almost every episode recorded on our DVR and I'm sure the only new episode on this DVD will be on Disney soon so this was a complete waste of money. What a diappointment, especially considering the amount of advertising that went into this DVD.

There is nothing associated with outer space. My son loves the Einsteins and he loves space. So when I saw this I assumed that they would have an episode associated to outer space. No just the brief chase of the last little piggy. Something tells me that Disney knows what they did and are just trying to get more money. Unfortunately, our kids pay the price because like the other reviewers our son was so excited and then angry because he didn't get the race for space show. Shame on Disney!
