The Wonder Pets are a trio of classroom pets that work together during after-school hours to help needy animals around the world. In this animated Nick Jr. program, Linny the guinea pig, Ming-Ming the duckling, and Tuck the turtle respond to animals' pleas for help from around the world by assembling a fly-boat from everyday items in their classroom and flying off to distant places like Greece, Japan, England, and the Nile river. Whether it's a caterpillar who appears to be sick, a baby crane that's too close to an erupting volcano, a hedgehog stuck in a hedge, or a crocodile with dirty teeth, the wonder pets can be counted on to work together to creatively solve any problem. Each 12-minute episode features cute children's songs sung by real children and a wholesome message about the power of teamwork. (Ages 1 to 5) --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Opera for kids? This calls for some celery! May 3, 2007
Format:DVD
Not familiar with the Wonder Pets? You're in for a treat. Presented as operettas, these 12-minute Nick Jr. cartoons for infants and toddlers are produced with a live orchestra and feature characters who sing all of their dialogue opera-style. Toss in a surreal cut-and-paste animation style -- think "South Park" done with photos and realistic backgrounds -- and an occasional tinge of attitude and you've got a program that's appealing for parents as well as their kids. Before branching out on his own, creator Josh Selig was a long-time writer for "Sesame Street."

The stories are good, too. Focused on teaching the value of teamwork, they chronicle the adventures of three pets at a preschool -- Linny the Guinea Pig, Ming-Ming Duckling and Turtle Tuck. After the kids go home, these secret super heroes ditch their cages and soar off in a makeshift flying sailboat (the Fly Boat), traveling the globe to rescue baby animals. Along the way they learn interesting science facts. Besides the show's obvious educational value, each of the characters has his or her own intrinsic appeal. Like many toddlers, Tuck loves to give hugs and Ming-Ming pronounces the "R" sound as a "W." Linny, meanwhile, is the oldest (she's 5), the most educated and a food connoisseur. Her catch phrase? "This calls for some celery!"

Debuting in 2006, the show is now the top-rated program on Nick Jr., surpassing long-time ratings champ "Dora the Explorer."

This DVD contains seven "Wonder Pets" stories, about an hour and a half of material. Six are standard episodes of the television program, grouped in sets of two. There's "Save the Caterpillar" teamed with "Save the Crane," "Save the Crocodile" with "Save the Hedgehog," and "Save the Kangaroo" with "Save the Sea Lions.

5.0 out of 5 stars It will leave you breathless.... May 16, 2007
Format:DVD
In the midst of this emotional rollercoaster is a theme that sticks to the backbone of America: we all need companionship and need to remember those who have reached out to us in some way.

In the first epic, we have the jolly trio of heroic animals known worldwide as the Wonder Pets wondering whether the animals who they have assisted in the past ever reflect back on the time they were in need and were saved by the Wonder Pets. As they are reminiscing, they are called to help another animal in danger. As they respond to the call, they are swallowed by a whale (some would say accidentally - yet the intent was not ever fully investigated). The team of fearless animals have to conjur up creative ways to escape from the inside of the whale. They come up with several bright ideas, however most are unsuccessful ventures. I won't give the ending away, but I will admit that there is a fair amount of singing that may choke up even the hardest of hearts. You will laugh, you may cry, and you will never be the same.....

5.0 out of 5 stars My three year old daughter loved this DVD! June 30, 2007
Format:DVD
I almost didn't buy this because I read a review complaining that the DVD had episodes formerly shown on TV....well thank goodness I ordered it anyway, because the special double length "Save the Wonder Pets" whale episode was worth the price alone. My daughter had played the online game on the Nick Jr. site where the Wonder Pets are in the belly of the whale, and so was thrilled to actually watch the adventure on the "big screen" of the TV. The other episodes, which have all been on TV, are just an added bonus - now she can watch one whenever she likes, since the show isn't on as often as some of her other favorite programs.

If your toddler likes the Wonder Pets, this will be a favorite!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the Little Ones! September 14, 2007
By mjfrank
Format:DVD
All I can say is that since my 2-year old got this for his birthday he runs into the house after day-care and says "Pets? More pets???". I think that says it all. And yes, I agree with an earlier review - I cannot get that title song out of my head!!! LOL :) This is a MUST if you want your child to be kind to animals. Enjoy!
