The Backyardigans series continues to amaze and amuse with imaginative stories and increasingly offbeat choices of music genre. As usual, this DVD contains four episodes (these are from Season Three) as well as a few extra music videos.

"Match on Mount Olympus" takes a basketball game to new heights as two guys from Ancient Greece (Tyrone and Pablo) join with the Gods and Goddesses in a pick-up game to determine the weather. Four songs to a Samba beat set the mood for play.

"The Great Dolphin Race" takes place underwater in "Atlantis City", with Tyrone owning a stable for racing dolphins, run by Pablo and Uniqua. Uniqua finds a small but speedy dolphin that she wants to race, but first she has to convince Tyrone that he's up to speed. This "National Velvet"-type story is set to the beat of Columbian folk music.

"Ranch Hands from Outer Space" is the first episode that doesn't feature Tyrone. Tasha has too much work on her hands to fix up her ranch, but helpful aliens Zablo and Zuniqua from Zorbidor show up in need of a little help themselves. Many hands make work an out-of-this-world experience in this funny adventure set to Italian music.

"Caveman's Best Friend" is a Stone Age romp set to some super soul music. Austin buys a dinosaur pup from Uniqua and then unwittingly unleashes an epic chase involving Pablo the policeman and Tyrone the fireman.

Another solid DVD, warming us up for Escape from Fairytale Village due in October 2008.

The Backyardigans has to be one of the cleverest, funniest, cutest, and most entertaining kids shows ever created. An irresistible blend of bright, colorful animation, adorable dancing characters, and catchy tunes makes this show a delight not just for the little ones but also for parents. It also helps that many of the episodes are sly sendups of shows and movies that are definitely for grownups.

This new disk contains four episodes. All are delightful but the last two are particularly entertaining.

Match on Mt. Olympus: Just as Pablo and Tyrone are about the take care of the perfect weather and play basketball, the Weather Goddess Tasha decides to rain on their parade--literally. The two then journey to Mt. Olympus and enlist the help of Austin, God of Laughter and Uniqua, Goddess of Naps. The samba-style music is fun and the Backyardigans wear some seriously stylish togas.

The Great Dolphin Race: Stable Boy Pablo and Stable Girl Uniqua are happy working at Racer Tyrone's dolphin ranch. Then Uniqua, who dreams of racing, finds a racing dolphin of her own, enlists Pablo to be her trainer, and challenges Tyrone to a race. But Uniqua's dolphin has a serious fear that could cost them the race.

Ranch Hands from Outer Space: Tasha is a rancher with more chores than time and so when Zablo and Zuniqua appear at her ranch, she is more than happy to take them on. The two aliens are eager to earn their pancake reward, though not for the reason Tasha imagines. This episode is particularly entertaining as Zablo and Zuniqua have some truly unorthodox methods of completing their chores and the '60s Italian pop style music is catchy.

Caveman's Best Friend: Caveman Austin is ecstatic when he finally realizes his dream of pet ownership.

I am a recent fan of the Backyardigans because of my grandson and I am not disappointed! My grandson loves to see them introducing themselves and he gets upset when the end credits come on. I always set the DVD to play them all and I have to tell him to be patient from from end credit to the next beginning.

my daughter is a huge backyardigans fan. so maybe every 6-8 weeks, i'll check amazon to see if there's another disc coming out that she doesn't have yet. when i found this one, we sat down and pre-ordered it. the day it arrived, it went in the dvd player in her room (that i control), and hasn't come out since. she watches this before bed every night.

i'm just happy she likes it.
