3.0 out of 5 stars My 2 year likes this but ... October 30, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
He'd probably watch it if it were just the monster trucks without any narration. Having seen this DVD about a dozen times in the past 48 hours since it arrived I have come to some conclusions. Before I write my opinions as a 36 year old father, let me repeat again that my 2.5 year old enjoys this video (though just the monster truck one really, the other ones seem to lose his interest). I'm sure he'd give it 4 or 5 stars, but then again he'd do the same for a camcorder recording of some nearby construction jobs. Anyways...

I find these videos strangely inspiring, in that anyone with a nice camera and a person with no acting ability willing to ham it up as a host could make a children's video. Dave does a good job being a 'real life' Homer Simpson type character, making stupid very predictable mistakes and saying 'I shouldn't have done that!' which I'm guessing is a tag line for these videos. He acts as narrator and over-enthusiastic big kid host. Other comments have hinted this isn't Dave & Becky's first video, which is unfortunate cause I thought maybe this was a pilot and they had better repetoire and 'characters' in future episodes.

Here's the thing, over the years I have made some really dumb and silly unscripted camcorder videos with friends and I recognize ad lib dialogue and 'lets make a story from the footage we have' type productions and these reek of that. I can't imagine the production costs for these videos was more than a few thousand, possibly just a few hundred, dollars. It's also is clear they spent at most a day or two shooting each segment, if not just a few hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars fun dvd -- 3 adventures plus extras!! February 26, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Our family enjoys these Dave Hood shows, and this DVD contains three: There Goes a Bulldozer, all about construction vehicles; There Goes a Monster Truck, with Dave and Becky driving trucks and visiting a monster truck show; and There Goes a Tank, where Dave messes up in the military!
Extras are good also: bloopers, a song and an interactive construction zone, where you watch things blow up in forward or reverse.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Much Becky & Dave Fighting October 18, 2004
Format:DVD
I am a strong supporter for the earlier Real Wheel Videos (before Dave and Becky began to fight during each of their episodes); however, this one should be skipped for more sensitive children. Specifically, Dave and Becky fight a little more harshly than in their previous videos, and I am not too keen on having my children exposed to monster trucks named "Big Dummy." Granted, they'll probably be exposed to this language later on, I'd just rather it didn't happen on my watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars We Love Big Trucks!!! October 1, 2003
Format:DVD
My family and I are such huge fans of this series! When we found out there were two more DVD's (Rescue Adventures) out we bought them both right away! My 3 year son adores this whole series! Both my husband and my son particularly love this DVD because there are enormous trucks and they get to see just how they work and move. The DVD has some really cool special features as well. The bloopers are great and we think the host, Dave, is fantastic! If you have kids or know of any kids who would love to learn and have a great time doing it, this series of DVD's and videos is the way to go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for all! August 7, 2005
By Anna
Format:DVD
This DVD collection is fantastic! Dave and Becky's on screen antics are a prime example of good clean television fun. My children love both characters and enjoy the playfulness between the two of them. My children especially loved the "There Goes a Monster Truck," where Dave and Becky get in on the action. The kids get a great insight into Monster Truck drivers and the interesting sport they perform. In fact, I even learned quite a bit after watching these videos. Also, this DVD comes highly recommended from other children's video websites including MyParentime.com. Sit back, relax, learn, and Enjoy!

We purchased this for our son's 2nd birthday after he had seen it once on loan from a library. He absolutely loves the heavy construction equipment segment but isn't so interested in the other two segments. He literally barely blinks through the entire show. For us it is a blessing and a curse...it is our ace in the hole when we need to keep him occupied for a short time, but on the other hand he has a fit when he can't watch it over and over again! We love the fact that the video features real working equipment. It is quite educational!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for truck fanatics! March 21, 2007
Format:DVD
My son is in love with monster trucks - this video has become his number one favorite video of all time. He would literally watch it 100 consecutive times if you allowed him to. This was money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and Entertaining September 20, 2005
By E. L.
Format:DVD
My 3 1/2 year old son LOVES these "There Goea A..." videos. He started watching them when he was just over a year old. He started to become interested in tanks, and started asking me a lot of questions about tanks (which I had no idea the answers), so I got him this video. He has now learned all about tanks, as well as other military vehicles. He even points them out while we're watching tv, and can tell me the official names of the trucks. He really likes the Monster Trucks and Bulldozers segments as well. "There Goes a Bulldozer" is the very first video he watched, so this was not a new one for him; however, he still loves to watch it. When we drive by a construction site, he names off every piece of machinery. While I find Dave irritating, my son thinks he is hilarious. I really like these videos for the fact that my son actually learns a lot from them about different vehicles and machinery.
