Roseanne Barr played a one-of-a-kind mother on prime time television's Roseanne in the late 1980's and her entrance to the children's music market is no less unique. The harsh, almost raspy tone quality that made Roseanne seem so believable as a frustrated, loud-mouthed television mother is also evident in Roseanne's singing voice. While her distinctive tone quality is used to good effect in songs like "No Monsters Allowed" and "I'm Gonna Tell on You" which are sung from the point of view of querulous young children, it isn't particularly pleasant listening. The themes of the songs vary from outright disobedience and obnoxious behavior ("Don't Do It") to the fantastical ("Down on the Donut Farm") to the appreciation of natural beauty and all that is good in classics like "Popcorn Poppin'" and "Three Little Birds." The visuals run the gamut from Roseanne dressed up like a child in a blanket sleeper to full animation to puppetry, and the music styles include rock, jazz and country. Roseanne Barr fans with young children may get a kick out of Rockin' with Roseanne - Calling All Kids , but it's definitely not your typical warm and fuzzy children's musical collection. Selections can be viewed with or without on-screen lyrics. (Ages 2 to 7) --Tami Horiuchi

3.0 out of 5 stars Really Wanted to Like This One... March 18, 2006
I am a Roseanne fan since forever, through thick and thin, and really wanted to love this. Though sometimes cute, it was just too cheesy in many respects. The singing was often subpar (even for a kid vid) and the Roseanne close-ups too frequent and too close. The Roseanne dressed as a little girl made me uncomfortable -- guess you just can't pull that off after a certain age. "Popcorn Poppin" was a cute song and story, but the animation was not only cheesy, it was downright scary. Also scary was the brown face makeup on the kids dressed as teddy bears in "Teddy Bears' Picnic." And she REALLY should have left "Three Little Birds" alone. On the positive side, I think my toddler liked it (seemed to hold his attention). "I'm Gonna Tell on You" was pretty funny and clever - two puppet sisters arguing. The Andrews Sisters-type number was also pretty good -- "Let the Kids Boogie," and Roseanne and the girls look great in their 40's outfits/hair. The animated "Peanut Butter and Jelly Fish" was clever and cute, too. My favorite was "Down on the Doughnut Farm" -- just because of the concept and because it was quintessential Roseanne. Also, those doughnuts looked seriously good! (Suggestion: put your shoes on while watching it -- you'll be compelled to run out for doughnuts as soon as its over.) I do hope the kiddies (and their grownups) like it more than I did. I really did want this to be good. I loved the motivation and intention behind it (quirky and for the kids), but for me, it simply missed the mark. Sorry, Rosie. :o( Do consult with me on the next one though! ;o)

5.0 out of 5 stars Calling All Kids...and Grownups February 8, 2006
Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD as a gift for an eight-year-old and decided to "preview" it first. I was very impressed. The songs (most are original) are cute and catchy and deliver positive messages for children. The visuals - some using animation, some using puppets and others using live action - are very colorful and creative. Roseanne has a voice that is well-suited to this kind of project. The sets and costumes in the live-action numbers are well-done and the variety of music styles (including an Andrews Sisters dance number using very talented kids and grownups) makes for fun viewing. I especially liked "Let the Kids Boogie," "Calling All Kids," "I'm Gonna Tell On You" and "Don't Do It." Having the choice of watching the DVD with or without singalong lyrics, for those old enough to read, is a good learning tool. I am sure that youngsters will "get the message" while they are being thoroughly amused and entertained by Rockin' With Roseanne.

5.0 out of 5 stars ROSEANNE ROCKS!! February 13, 2006
Bought this DVD for my 4 year old niece's birthday. They played it during the entire birthday party! All the kids were dancing to Let the Kids Boogie - and it was so nice that the music was actually fun for the adults to listen to as well! Highly recommend this DVD for Kids!

Rockin' With Roseanne: Calling All Kids! is a forty-minute DVD showcasing a musical extravaganza featuring comedienne and actress Rosanne Barr. Packed with twelve fun-filled and lively tunes for children preschool through first grade, nine of the songs are original compositions, and one (Three Little Birds) is a Bob Marley classic. The DVD format allows young viewers to choose whether to watch the videos with on-screen lyrics or without. The performances also blend live-action, colorful animation, funny puppets, costumes, and more. The styles of music range from rock, reggae, and country-western, to boogie-woogie, blues, and beyond. Very highly recommended for day school, preschool, kindergarten, family and community library children's music collections, Rockin' With Roseanne: Calling All Kids! is ideal for kids' parties, rainy day activities, and just anytime that lively, entertaining, "kid friendly" music is called for!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for young children! We loved it! July 14, 2013
So, I admit that when I checked this DVD out from the library for my 5 year old daughter, it was because I am a Roseanne fan & wanted to see it. However, knowing Roseanne's style of humor, I also was a bit hesitant as I wasn't sure what type of humor she'd use for a children's video. I happily found that I had no reason to be concerned! And my granddaughter LOVED it!!! It is a sing along video that can be watched with or without the lyrics, and includes both classics such as "Three Little Birds" and original songs. As these catchy tunes are performed in a variety of styles including rock, county, blues, reggae, boogie-woogie, and jazz, it introduces children to a wide spectrum of music style in a very fun way. My granddaughter enjoyed it so much that I've just purchased a copy from Amazon for her personal collection. I highly recommend it to all families with young children!
