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?

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

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.
