"The Backyardigans continues to be a perennial favorite in our household. It's hard not to love this series, with its vibrant colors, adorably rounded characters, catchy tunes, and lovely messages about gentleness, kindness, and sharing. The show continues to be fun and wonderful without being at all preachy.
This particular DVD contains four new episodes, including the titular Robin Hood the Clean. Pablo, as Robin Hood, must free the citizens of Filthingham from Mayor Stinkypants--aka Austin--who refuses to allow them to take baths or even to possess objects like soap. Pablo's meticulousness is one of the show's running jokes and it's always a joy to see him doing his best to keep everything spotless. The show may also provide inspiration for a parent's own little Stinkypants to take his or her bath, particularly if they have a bosom bath companion like Pablo's beloved Mitty.
Tyrone and Pablo comprise the Two Musketeers named in one of the subsequent episodes. They are plagued by Tasha, a fan who repeatedly appears and begs to join their duo. However, Tyrone and Pablo are so intent on their quest to rid the land of the empress that they ignore the ever-capable Tasha until she eventually forces them to question the reasons behind their dislike of the empress. There's a nice, gentle message here about not judging others without really getting to know them.
The Masked Retriever is a particular favorite of mine, book lover that I am. Uniqua plays an Indian Jones-esque librarian who does her best to recover overdue library books. She sets out on a particularly exciting adventure to recover the overdue book of Don Austin. Woe betide anyone who mishandles Librarian Uniqua's books!
In To the Center of the Earth, Tyrone, Pablo, and Uniqua take the titular journey, thanks to an imaginative variety of inventions created by Tyrone and Uniqua, who have a reputation for being famous inventors. However, their inventions don't always work as intended, much to the exasperation of Tyrone, whose levelheaded approach doesn't always appeal to Pablo and Uniqua.
This show has provided my family with endless hours of delight and every single DVD we have ever purchased has been well-worth the money spent. My husband and I are expecting a new addition in May and we're already looking forward to getting the new little one into this show so that he and I will continue to have an excuse to watch it!"

"We are such big Backyardigans fans in my house. The songs are incredibly cute, the characters always get along well and there's never any violence. This DVD has one of our favorite episodes - Robin Hood the Clean. It has charming, engaging songs and a really cute storyline. The other episodes on this disc tend to lose my son's interest, but it was worth it to have Robin Hood the Clean."
Perfect for children

"Backyardigans are perfect for children, and the "Robin Hood the Clean" DVD is top-notch. I appreciate that the Backyardigans are positive, creative, imaginative, and love to sing and dance. They embody so many positive aspects that I consider important, and none of what I consider destructive.
Any Backyardigans DVD is a great buy, and this one is one of the best of the best.
