I have a 10 month old daughter whose favorite show right now is the bubble guppies. The only problem with that show is that its still new and that they only have a few episodes (2 seasons worth). I tried getting her to watch new shows and I couldnt find anything that could get her attention, everything was either too cartoonish or not educational at all. But then I remembered when my nephews and neices were babies that they loved watching the Backyardigans, so I tried putting it on for her thinking that she wasnt going to like it. Boy was I wrong about that one. The characters were so unique and the songs were so well sung. She was instantly hooked. These child acters are so experienced beyond their ages and that their talents are above that of some older TWEEN shows. I highly recommend this show for children of all ages (and for those closeted adults who still enjoy watching cartoons).

This show is simply amazing.

If you are a musician or a music fan, you'll have a great appreciation for the quality of the compositions and the singing. You may also enjoy the fact that each episode has a different musical theme that is not tied to the plot or setting of the story (e.g. a Samurai tale set to Spaghetti Western-style music, a superhero/super villain story set to Latin music, or a sci-fi thriller set to disco music).

If you are a dancer, you may find this aspect of the show endearing. The dance choreography is simple and enjoyable. It's great to watch a show where the characters periodically stop what they're doing and dance. My 1-year-old takes their cue every time and jumps up to dance.

The writing is clever and may appeal to adults enough to encourage them to watch with their children. There are plenty of subtle lines with deadpan delivery that will be well over the heads of the primary target audience. A lyric from the samurai tale previously mentioned, "Hiya, pie-ya, I make pies like a samurai...hiya, pie-ya, like a samurai who makes pie." From the show's theme song: "Together in the backyard again. In the place where we belong, where we'll probably sing a song, and we'll maybe dance along." Of course, each story has some sort of basic moral dilemma being solved, as well as various opportunities for cross-curricular learning, so it's not just a flashing colors and lights on a screen.

If you are a computer graphics person, you may be underwhelmed by the quality of the animation, but so much of the energy is spent on good writing, great acting, choreographed dancing, and pitch-perfect singing, that the animation is quickly forgiven.

I enjoy watching this show with my grandchildren. The concept is so smart and appealing--imaginary adventures in the backyard! It reminds me of the kind of play I had as a child. The songs are catchy and the dance moves entertain. The racial diversity that is evident in the characters' voices is simply genius. My youngest grandchild (15 months) becomes absorbed in the shows and I do too. We both have our favorite episodes that we don't get tired of watching like "Surf's Up" and "Polka Palace Party"! I think this show is for both the young and the young-at-heart.

My kids loved it! They have enjoyed Backyardigans for as long as I can remember. They were very excited to see it as a choice.

Very cute show, my 3.5 year old loves it and I happen to like it too (as opposed to a lot of other kids shows)

Who doesn't love the Backyardigans? An adventure using your imagination, right in your own backyard and your best friends are along for the ride? My son loves this show, is is captivating, educational, and the songs are catchy. All around, it's really a great cartoon with lots of different episodes so your little will have a great variety. This is a show you can feel good about your child watching!

Based on my age, I should be absolutely ashamed that I love this series, because I'm oldish. I love the songs, singing and the photorealistic dance movements. When my niece gets older, maybe she'll be interested in this series (she is 7 months and not interested in much anything except sticking things in her mouth). Like another reviewer says, this series is like a bunch of mini Broadway performances. And the stories are super creative and refreshing. The characters speak great English and use words/ideas much bigger than that of their target audience (parent service). Like "Cave Party," a great storyline and theme, but not sure how many 2-3 year olds understand inventing the way it is presented by the show. But I'm sure it's mind-expanding for kids older than 3, and the theme was presented very well.

The first episode I happened to see on tv when flipping through was "Who Goes There?" The title song on that episode was wonderful and the flamenco music (I actually recognized that theme) was spot-on, while I wish I could imitate Tyrone's dance moves!

What got me was the great songs and amazing dance moves, which amazed me because I normally cannot stand kid musicals and songs (like most anything on Nick Jr.) But the amount of attention this show puts into introducing different genres of music (many that I was not familiar with) had made me want to discover each genre of music over the course of the many episodes now available (only discovered this year for me). You can tell the singers (of different ethnicities) are actually kids with great vocal range, and the characters' speaking voice actors are kids as well, making everything sound very authentic.
