4.0 out of 5 stars "Kelp! We Got Tangled Up in Kelp!" April 2, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Wonder Pets! get groovy in the newest release, "Save the Beetles!" Yes, the Wonder Pets are called up on the ol' telly with a request for help from four members of a famous rock band, the Beetles, whose yellow submarine has gotten tangled up in kelp. As they journey to rescue them, they'll dive straight into Beatlemania pop-culture (and reference numerous Beatles song titles and lyrics along the way!) It's a fun journey, with two of the Beetles being voiced by... well, no, not the Beatles themselves, but by members of the cast of the stage play "Beatlemania!"

In the second half, "Three Wonder Pets and a Baby!," the Wonder Pets find themselves with a baby on their hands -- a baby pig! This one is really cute and could quickly become a fan favorite. It may be even more fun than "Save the Beetles!" There are many cute baby-related things, including various pictures of actual babies (my guess is children of the show staff.)

None of the other episodes released on this DVD are new either. Still, they're good content. One of them is "Save the Chameleon / Save the Platypus." "Save the Platypus" is particularly good, because it shows how a friend and team-member (Linny) can maintain a level-head when two others (Tuck and Ming-Ming) are arguing. There's also "Save the Duckling / Save the Kitten" and "Save the Sheep / Save the Hermit Crab" (music from both of these stories is featured on the "Wonder Pets!" album release.)

It's a shame that this DVD continues the tradition of not really including much in the way of special feature content. The only real special feature is the "Kelp!" music video -- which is just an easier way to access content that is already part of the episode. I was really hoping for behind-the-scenes stuff on "Save the Beetles!" -- "The Backyardigans," after all, gave us a behind-the-scenes look at "International Superspy," complete with scenes of Cyndi Lauper recording a song for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars OK! You've got me! July 15, 2008
Format:DVD
Well this is everything a Baby Boomer gran or auntie needs to see to guarantee a purchase! It's a combination British Invasion music "tribute" with tons of Beatle references and precious, funny animals! There's no violence and no scary guys to make it anything but perfect for its intended audience -- Babies and Boomers who love them!

I'm sold. How about you?

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva Wonder Pets September 15, 2008
Format:DVD
My 10 month old cannot get enough of the Wonder Pets. She even rocks and tries to dance when she hears the songs. This one is great, although I wish the Beattle segment was longer. I actually like and approve of Wonder Pets for her, b/c they are sending a good message. Plus I do not have to listen to the schreching, nails on chalk board, screeming from dora the explorer. Dora drives us crazy. More Wonder Pets..........

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Clean Fun June 1, 2008
Format:DVD
No bad guys, no strong or border line language. Nothing close to scary. It's baby animals saving baby animals, so it's a safe purchase for young kids. The episodes are great for introducing new concepts and animals to little ones.

Each episode runs about 10 minutes so it's easy to track how much tv is being watched.

We had this DVD for our grandson (who is now nine) when he was a toddler. We now use it for our granddaughter who is 1 1/2. We purchased a copy for our grand nephew who is 2 1/2. Very sweet story. Perfect the for toddlers and preschoolers. Educational.

More Wonder Pets to save the day. I thought I'd hear the "Beetle" tunes. No such luck. New words to the old tune. Cute as usual.

3.0 out of 5 stars not into it December 7, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this dvd because my 2 year old granddaughter loves wonderpets. However, I think it is kind of wierd. The animation is okay and the episodes are short enough that we can watch one or 2 and talk about them, but I wouldn't really recommend this series as anything that's of much educational value.
