But with that said, I was disappointed with this one, as I think it fell a little flat. If you're familiar with the series, you know that what makes it work is the chemistry among curious and naïve Peep the chick, smart and cynical Chirp the robin and conceited yet somehow lovable Quack the duck. There's usually a good mix of deadpan sarcastic humor and slapstick antics to keep children and adults alike amused and engaged.
But the humor in these episodes is mostly duds. Sure, there are periodic chuckles, but overall the humor isn't well timed. In the title episode (Bringing Spring), for instance, the birds meet a young groundhog searching for her shadow. In fact, she doesn't even know what a shadow is. Helpful as always, the birds teach her and help her find her shadow, only to realize that they've just brought about six more weeks of winter. It seems like it could be so funny, and there are, in fact, any number of openings for humor, but most of them just pass right by. You feel like maybe you should laugh, but you just shrug.
And then there's the two-part episode "An Inconvenient Tooth", which doesn't even seem to offer much in the way of hope for humor. Beaver Boy, being a young and impetuous beaver, does what young beavers do: he chews trees. Lots of them.Read more ›
Humorous and instructive. The characters are lovable, and Quack is hilarious.
Highly recommend all of these DVD's for your young ones !!!
