A Really Cute DVD - a review of "Bob the Builder - Dig! Lift
Pam Tee | 11/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is a cute BTB DVD that has not only the regulars (Bob, Wendy, Spud, and the Crew) but many of the other favorite characters including Farmer Pickles, Mr. Beasley, and that tea making Mrs. Potts. There is also Scruffty the dog, and some adorable mice and bunnies!
In the first story, "Scruffty's Big Dig", Scruffty the dog manages to fall into a bunny hole and get stuck. Muck passes by and gets spooked by Scruffty's howling, but it all works out in the end when Bob and the crew solve the mystery and save Scruffty.
The second story, "Bob's Boots", has Bob breaking in new boots. The boots squeak and attract mice, which as we all know Lofty does not like. Lofty ends up running for home, followed by Bob, followed by the mice -- which Bob doesn't realize are there. Bob thinks Lofty is imagining that there are mice. All of this in interweaved with a sub-plot wherein Spud takes Bob's lunch by accident. The mice end up chasing Spud because he gave them some crumbs.
In the third story, "Mr. Beasley's Do-It-Yourself Disaster", Bob is hired to build a garden shed, while Wendy is busy painting Mrs. Pott's fence. Chaos ensues when Bob gets diverted from the shed work to do a quick roof repair for Mr. Dixon. Bob and Wendy keep missing one another; and Mr. Beasley begins the project himself, working under the misguided notion that he can use tools.
Wendy shows up to wonder what is wrong with Bob that the structure looks so crooked. She repairs it and it's actually pretty funny when Bob and Mr. Beasley actually think Mr. B did the work.
The fourth story, "Spud Lends A Hand", is about the installation of a sprinkler system for Farmer Pickles. Everything goes fine until Spud 'lends a hand' and advises the crew on how to finish the installation of a rain-tank. Chaos results when Spud ends up giving advice to the Lofty and the guys. The tank breaks loose and not only rolls down hill, but destroys Wendy's gift which is a sailboat. Bob ends up saving the day when he takes the remains of Wendy's sail boat and turns it into a motor boat.
The final story is "Dizzy's Crazy Paving". It's my favorite because it has Wendy in a 'if you have lemons, make lemonade' kind of situation. Mrs. Pott's wants a new sidewalk and everything starts out fine until too much fooling around leaves the square pavers that they were going to use, broken up. Wendy solves the problem by making a sort of crazy quilt sidewalk with the colorful tiles.
The stories are linked by the mischief, humor, and creativity.
Five Stars (for a Bob the Builder DVD). Five classic Bob stories on this one. My son loves this DVD and can watch it over and over. Sometimes he will focus on what Bob is doing, and other times the equipment, and yet other times the little animals that in the stories: bunnies, dog, cat, bird, mice. Great fair for rainy days."
