Movie Reviews

Great, As Always!
Janet Boyer | Pennsylvania | 08/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We just got our copy of Into the Deep today from, and it's wonderful as always!

My son is watching it right now, and I LOVE the Bollywood style music of Into the Deep, which serves as a background for the mermaids Tasha and Uniqua! (I can't help but sway as I write this!)

Here are the episodes found on this DVD:

INTO THE DEEP - In this underwater Bollywood musical, Deep-Sea Explorers Tyrone and Pablo attempt to capture the garden-guarding Mermaids Uniqua and Tasha--on film, that is!

NEWS FLASH - Proud, Motown-singing Farmers Pablo and Tyrone inadvertently set up an out-of-this-world encounter in their cornfield to get their prized corn crop on the news.

SAVE THE DAY - Groove to psychedelic soul as Harbor Patrollers Uniqua, Pablo, and Tyrone repeatedly save determined Fisher-lady Tasha, who insists upon fishing in dangerous waters!

CATCH THAT BUTTERFLY - It's a Wild West chase set to comic opera when Professor Pablo hires tough Stagecoach Drivers Tyrone and Uniqua to help him catch the rare Gilded Butterfly.

Unfortunately, it seems that Austin, the purple kangaroo, is absent from all the episodes on this DVD... (Oops! I stand corrected. My son just told me that Austin appears in Newsflash.)

The Special Features are minimal: a Dora Saves the Mermaids sneak peek (it will be released in September of 2007) and a Can't Stop the Cops video.

This DVD has a runtime of 99 minutes--and is yet another fine addition to the Backyardigans DVDs!"
A Backyardigans medley

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Backyardigans series is one of the few children's shows that can be watched over and over again without causing involuntary twitches, nervous breakdowns or constant eye rolling on the part of adults. The five characters are extremely likeable, the episodes highly imaginative, and the selection of a different genre of music for each episode is a stroke of creative genius.

Two of the episodes on this DVD qualify for special praise in the musical department, and these are "Into the Deep" which uses Bollywood melodies, and "Catch That Butterfly" which is pure operatic brilliance. "Save the Day" is psychedelic soul and "Newsflash" is inspired by Motown music.

A summary of the four episodes on this DVD is below:

"Into the Deep" (summarized to the tune "Octopus's Garden")

Here you will see, under the sea
Tasha and Uniqua's garden in the shade
But don't go in, they'll cause a din
A little mermaids' garden escapade

Then undersea, came P and T
With their underwater plans for a movie
The girls freak out, and start to shout
But everything works out eventually

"Newsflash" (summarized to the tune "Oh What a Beautiful Morning")

There's some bright golden corn in the cornfields
There's some bright golden corn in the cornfields
The news people sigh, no newsflashes arise
When down at the farm, two guys sensationalize

Oh what a beautiful newsflash
Oh what a beautiful sight
I've got a wonderful feeling That there will be some news tonight

"Save the Day" (summarized to the tune "Pop Goes the Weasel")

Round and round the Harbor Patrol
The lady chased the whopper
The lady told them to get lost
And they couldn't stop her!

A jet ski for a sea of sharks
A chopper for a rescue
That's the way the story goes
Oh! What a whopper!

"Catch That Butterfly" (original lyrics from "Obsession" by Animotion)

I will have you
Yes I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly
A wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

No more needs to be said about this absolutely brilliant episode about a British bug collector and two helpful stagecoach drivers. Hi-ho old chap, I've said a mouthful here.

Best music since Animaniacs

"I'm a music teacher, and while my 2 year old loves Little Einsteins, the bad singing and inability to keep with the tempo of the music drives me crazy. The Backyardigans, on the other hand, sing very well- and in a different style for each episode. On this DVD, "Catch that Butterfly" is one of the best pieces on composition I've seen in a kids' DVD. The music is incredibly well written... you will enjoy watching this with your children. If you've got post-traumatic stress from watching that insipid, insulting Barney, this will help you heal!"
The Backyardigans are Back!

"We love The Backyardigans in our house and can watch it over and over again. We were pretty disappointed in Movers and Shakers, but with Into the Deep, the Backyardigans are back in excellent form! All 4 episodes are fun, with catchy tunes that moms and dads will find themselves humming. Each episode ends well - no funny, abrupt endings - and my son loves the fact that one of the snacks is sushi!

Our personal top 3 Backyardigans DVDs are now:
Into the Deep
Legend of the Volcano Sisters
Surf's Up

This is a must for any fan!"
