Product Description

Oswald loves living in Big City! It's got concerts, beaches and best of off, Oswald's friends! See the sights of Big City along with them in these eight great tales of Oswald! Odd One Out Oswald's best friend Henry and Henry's cousin Louie have a lot in common: collecting spoons, dancing the Penguin Polka, having fishsticks and mackerel milkshakes at lunch. When Louie visits Big City though, Oswald feels a little left out, and wonders if his best buddy Henry has found an even better buddy than him! Goodbye Best Friend Henry decides to leave Big City with his cousin Louie to return to the Frozen North. Oswald will miss his best friend, as will all of Henry's Big City buddies. Will Henry really be4 able to get on that bus and say goodbye to all his friends? Friends Indeed Daisy mistakes Henry's favorite spoon for a shovel; then, Henry steps on Daisy's plant. When this leads to an argument between the two friends, Oswald finds himself stuck in the middle! He needs to do all that he can to get his friends to be friends again. Sammy Starfish Live Oswald thinks the swinging, singing Sammy Starfish is the greatest, so when he hears that Sammy is performing in Big City, he invites some friends to see the big star with him. But his friends get the chance to see some other big stars too - Oswald and Weenie! A Day at the Beach! Oswald, Weenie and Daisy can't wait to get in the water at Big Beach, but Henry doesn't want to get his feathers wet. He just wants to read his newspape3r in his beached raft. But when Daisy gets stuck on an island, Henry has to take the plunge and row to the rescue! The Sand Sculpture Contest Oswald is the judge at the Annual Big City Sand Sculpture Contest. It's a big honor, but it's also a big challenge. Daisy, Henry, the Egg Twins, and even Catrina all have their own award-worthy styles of sand sculpting. How will Oswald choose a winner? The Tomato Garden Oswald and Weenie love red, ripe, juicy tomatoes, so they start a garden. But Oswald finds that the snails in his garden love his tomatoes too! Oswald must figure out a way to grow enough tomatoes for himself, for Weenie, and for the hungry snails. Bird Watching Daisy wants to go bird watching with Oswald, but she's a little too full of energy to stay as still and quiet as a birdwatcher needs to be. But when Oswald gets stuck on the back of a giant Mee-Tah bird, Daisy becomes just the type of bird watching buddy he needs!

The first two stories focus on the relationship between Oswald the blue octopus and his best friend Henry the penguin. When Henry's cousin from the Frozen North comes to town, Oswald feels left out as the birds bond over mackerel and polka. Then he faces every child's fear when Henry decides to move north with his cousin. But unlike real life, Henry has a change of heart and decides to stay with his friends only to fight with Daisy in the next story after she uses his spoon as a shovel. Then all the friends overcome obstacles to see a musical act together.

From the beach to the back yard, the blue octopus and his buddies find plenty to learn in the outdoors. On a trip to the shore, Henry the penguin paradoxically doesn't want to get his feathers wet, but rises to the challenge when reckless Daisy needs rescuing. Next, Oswald has the difficult task of judging which of his friends' sand sculptures should win the annual contest. (Two words: Everybody wins!) Back at home, when snails invade Oswald's tomato garden, the accommodating octopus buys new tomato plants to share. But the snails eat those, too. Finally, bird watcher Oswald gets impatient with his impulsive floral friend when she keeps scaring off his targets. But those same qualities come in handy when he needs her to bring him down from the back of a giant Mee-Tah bird. This gentle Nick Jr. series cleverly echoes and resolves many of the issues children face, and features kid-friendly voices from the expected--cartoon veteran Debi Derryberry and The Wonder Years' Fred Savage--as well as the unexpected: Laverne and Shirley's David Lander and early SNL regular Laraine Newman. (Ages 2 to 6) --Kimberly Heinrichs

This DVD is my three year old's very favorite! We watch it everyday! There are 8 episodes in this DVD. It's great for her attention span.
If you've never seen Oswald, you don't know what you're missing! Oswald and his friends are amusing even for adults! There is nice soft music in the background. This is such a great dvd, my daughter has memorized all the little songs that Oswald sings and performs them for family and friends!
Get this for your preschooler, you won't be disappointed!

Okay, I admit it! I am a 23-year old fan of Oswald because the colors are calm with no harsh bold outlined characters, the voices are soothing (w/ an exception to Henry the penguin/David Landers..lol). The stories are cheesy w/ Oswald's weiner dog being named...Weenie (any similarity to Winnie from "The Wonder Years"?...hmm).
I am a huge fan of Fred Savage and he really brings out a soft-hearted octopus to life with bizarre adventures and a collection of silly songs that are sure to stick in your head. I highly recommend Oswald to all babysitters out there, as not only the younger kids will love the characters & stories, but you may find yourself entranced with the imaginative world of Nickelodeon's Oswald.

This is one of the best shows that's ever been on television for kids or anybody. Scripts, performances, drawing, music even: palatable for hipsters AND my two-year-old daughter has liked it all along. Smart and sweet-natured at once; may the same be said of all of us.

It's true, as a package it could use better bells and whistles, but it looks good and you can circumvent all advertising in a blink, shamefully not always true even with kids' stuff.

There are so few shows out there that do not bombard small children with too much action, obnoxious noise, inappropriate dialog and constant scene changes. Oswald is a rare find. Cute humor, good stories ... can't miss! With degrees in Child Development, Education, and Psychology, along with a teaching credential, there are at least a handful of people who value my opinion!!

I'm giving this DVD 4 stars for a great story selection from a great show. On this DVD, you get some of the best stories from Oswald including "Sammy Starfish Live" (in which Oswald meets and performs with his idol), "Goodbye Best Friend" (a touching story about Oswald's friend Henry) and many more stories. I was going to give it three stars because I thought they had cut out the closing credits, but it turns out that all of the closing credits play at the end of the very last story.

As far as the DVD itself, the special features are very lacking. You get one game that involves simply looking at a still picture and then trying to find various things based on text and objects. There are also previews, which thankfully can be easily skipped. As far as previews go, they're not too bad. There are trailers for "Rugrats Go Wild" and "The Wild Thornberrys Movie," as well as promos for this DVD itself and other Nick Jr. DVDs.

I'm so angry with Nckelodeon for hooking my one-year-old on this show, then only creating 16 10-minute episodes. She is obsessed with Oswald, and I have purchased every last thing I could find, but I wish there was more. This video is half of the Oswald episodes, and keeps her occupied for about an hour. Love it!!!!

Oswald is, quite simply, the best children's show ever. The characters, the colors, the drawings, and the wonderful music! My kids have just adored this show. Thank you Dan Yaccarino--you have gotten us through bad moods, bouts with teething, and make some 40 something parents laugh, too.
