5.0 out of 5 stars Please Ms. Burgess, may we have some more? June 14, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sadly we have now come to the end of this wonderful musical series created by Janice Burgess. We own all five DVDs, and the first one "It's Great to be a Ghost" is still a regular on our play list, as are the others.

This one has four episodes as usual, two of which were also included in the Nick Jr Favorites DVDs. The list for this one is:

Surf's Up: Pablo, Tyrone and Uniqua brush up their "rad" surfing moves in order to ride the perfect wave at Tiki Beach, but who is that mysterious lifeguard?

Riding the Range: Tyrone is on his way to Texas, and meets up with Pablo, Uniqua and Tasha who're tracking down a jump-rope bandit.

Race to the Tower of Power: Two supervillains battle it out with two superheroes for possession of the Key to the World and with it, world domination. Whahahahhahaha!!

The Quest for Flying Rock: Four explorers quibble over the directions on a mysterious map, and end up having an obstacle race.

This series is highly recommended for children of all ages, and is one of the most imaginative and entertaining at the moment. If some of the other shows make you want to put on earplugs and run out of the room, you'll find this one a refreshing change.

Please Ms. Burgess, may we have some more?

Amanda Richards, June 14, 2006

Edited to note: The series has been renewed and there are more DVDs available since I wrote this review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the best of the lot. July 10, 2006
Format:DVD
I'd say that out of the Backyardigans DVDs that are out now, this one trumps them all.

If you're clueless, the Backyardigans is a show about 5 preschool kids (Tyrone, a moose; Tasha, a hippo; Pablo, a penguin; Austin, a kangaroo; and Uniqua, a.....um.....unique....looking pink.....person) using their imaginations in their backyard to go to other places (the places represented are the Wild West, a beach, a jungle/desert setting, and a large tower). What makes this show rise above most other kids' shows are its addictive music and its comical moments, as well as its choreographed dance numbers, which compliment the music nicely. It's definately safe viewing for the kiddies.

So the four episodes represented here are:

Surf's Up - Pablo, Tyrone and Uniqua search for a beach with awesome waves. But will Lifeguard Austin lead them to it? Music - Afro-Cuban/Surfing style

Riding the Range - Cowboy Tyrone is heading to a Wild West party, while Cowpokes Uniqua, Pablo, and Tasha are looking for a theiving bandit. Will their trails cross? Music - Hip-Hop

Race to the Tower of Power - The key to the world is hidden in the Tower of Power, and superheroes Captain Hammer (Austin) and Weather Woman (Uniqua) must prevent supervillians Yucky Man (Pablo) and Dr. Shrinky (Tyrone....complete with long rubber gloves!) from obtaining the key and ruling the world. Music - Latin

Quest for the Flying Rock - It's another race, as the legend of Stone Step Hill states that a flying rock awaits those who undertake a perilous quest. Pablo and Tyrone take the desert path in an attempt to beat Tasha and Uniqua, who are going through the jungle.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best kids show ever June 5, 2006
By Dr. Mom
Format:DVD
I've played all five of the dvd's every day for months and I haven't had one single problem with skipping or freezing like the reviewer below claims. My twins are completely in love with this show... they love the music, the bright colors, the happy characters... and I love the imagination and cooperation that the characters show individually and with one another. This is an absolutely brilliant show and I feel quite justified in playing it for my kids--I monitor what they watch very closely and this show gets an A in my book.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Backyardigans dvds ever. March 13, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm a parent, and my daughter loves the Backyardigans. It was the first show that really got her attention when she wasn't even a year old. In the last 3 years, -I've- gotten into the Backyardigans, and know nearly all the songs by heart. This dvd contains some of the most memorable episodes and songs, and that's saying a lot considering how catchy so many of them are.

Surf's Up is the episode where Pablo's looking for the perfect wave on Tiki Beach. While searching, he joins up with Tyrone and Uniqua, while being followed by the mysterious lifeguard, Austin. The music for this episode is Afro-pop, and very cool. And you gotta love those super super rad, totally rad moves the gang shows off on their boards.

Riding the Range has Tyrone going to a hoedown while Uniqua, Pablo and Tasha look for a bandit. The music here is more hip-hop, and it's great having Tyrone hopping along with those smooth hoedown moves to the beat. Ridin' the range, let's go! This episode has a little bit of western action involving horses too!

Then there are the two 'bonus' episodes. I don't like how they're listed as bonus episodes when they could just say that this dvd has 4 regular episodes. These two are Race to the Tower of Power and The Quest for the Flying Rock. Tower of Power is a cool superhero episoe where Tyrone and Pablo are the bad guys, and Uniqua and Austin are the heroes trying to stop them from doing bad guy-type things. Music genre for this episode = Latin. Finally is my favorite episode of the bunch, and one of my top episodes, the Flying Rock. The gang looks for a magical flying rock (yeah, it doesn't actually give you powers, it's just a small, flying rock that they want to go see) and splits up into two teams, trying to beat eachother to it.

What age group would you say this is for?
It is made for kids with the age of 1-6 but other people like it to. I liked the show in the year 2007 and I was only 15. I am trying not to like the show anymore since I am getting older, but it is a cute show.

Hi Alessandra,
Sorry but i think the answer is NO. I have 4 in spanish: It's Great to be a Ghost, Polka Palace Party, Cave Party and The Snow Fort. I saw Surf's Up in spanish but not an original one... just include 2 episodes instead of 4 (Surf´s Up and Race To The Tower Of Power). I'm in Venezuela.
