I remember these cartoons from my childhood. I recently came across them on Amazon. I purchased this DVD and The Busy World of Richard Scarry: It's a Busy, Busy Day! for my younger cousin. When I received them both, I realized that Every Day There's Something New has all of the episodes from It's a Busy, Busy Day and an additional 20 episodes. Basically, don't buy It's a Busy, Busy Day. For an extra couple of dollars you could get 30 full episodes instead of 10. By the way, these are the original Richard Scarry cartoons, not the new Busytown Mysteries cartoons.

This is a compilation (3 dvd set) of Richard Scarry stories originally produced, I believe, in the 1990s. Until this came out, those stories were mainly available on VHS. We have a large collection of the VHS tapes, however I was happy to discover many new stories on this set that we had not seen before. Although the animation is not cutting edge computer-generated, it is easy to watch and much more detailed than then new Hurray for Huckle dvds. The stories seem to have been written and animated by people who enjoyed what they were doing. The stories are widely varied, some taking place in other countries (Japan, Chile, Switzerland, Germany, etc.) and times (Shakespeare, Gutenberg, etc.). The dialogues are clever. The plots are wholesome. Only borderline exception would be a couple of stories that feature Couscous the detective dressing up as a dancing girl in order to capture Peppy the Gangster. (We also skip some of the previews at the beginning of the dvds.) Between the stories are catchy songs that teach about crossing the street, being careful with electricity, swimming pool safety, etc. The age range that these appeal to is wide: our now 3 yr old and 1 year old love them and their 5 yr old and 10 yr old cousins still enjoyed watching when they came to visit. In fact they're fairly entertaining for my husband and I, even after a zillion viewings.

As a parent I have struggled with young children's television programming. Too often, shows that cater to children are not child appropriate (mild sexual innuendo, crude joking, and parents are always idiotic and usually wrong). I am happy to say that I have found a show that I approve of.

The Busy World of Richard Scarry: Everyday There's Something New is a pleasant relief for parents. Not only is this series free of all that is bad about modern children's television (think Rugrats and Spongebob), but it even has better animation.

This July 2010 DVD release consists of 3 DVDs with approximately 13.5 hours of video.

It's a great buy!

What a very imformative cartoon this was. I watched it as a kid and loved it and now that I have it on DVD I can share it with my nieces. I am very impressed with this DVD. 30 episodes on 3 dvds, the show has 65 episodes so we now have half the show. Please Cookie Jar and Mill Creek, release the rest of this awesome cartoon! I will be sure to buy. Thanks for releasing this

10 stars if I could. The content of these 'old school' cartoons are so wonderful, with excellent lessons to teach young children, unlike a lot of new cartoons which are full of garbage. My son actually was addicted to watching Busytown Mysteries (newer cartoon) but upon a search I found more DVDs so I jumped and bought it! Am so happy with this 3 disc set! :o) Oh and my one year old also loves it!

Our kids request these episodes over and over again! And I don't mind letting them watch because all of the characters are polite and well mannered, each show encourages great thinking skills, and the settings are varied around the world in some episodes. Our family loves Busytown!

Kids love Busytown!!! I loved Busytown growing up and now my kids get to enjoy and love it too! We started watching episodes on Youtube, but now they can enjoy them on trips in the van. Bough Fun in Busytown, Every Day is Something New, and the Busytown Mysteries to have a complete set & they love all of them!

Richard Scarry's bright colorful books brought to life! Great stories full of life's lessons told in a fun way keeping my boys entertained. Like the books there is always a lot going on. Very vivid colors, and the voices are friendly. Easy to navigate DVD's, and they seem to play for hours upon end. We've had them for a month and still haven't watched all the episodes! A classic educational treasure at a great price!
