"My daughter loves this show, so we bought this DVD when the show disappeared from our stations. The DVD is great for kids who love the show, but I'm disappointed they couldn't offer more episodes on it. The same titled Australian version DVD has more than double the episodes this US version has! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that more DVDs become available in the US before we tire of watching these same limited episodes over and over!"

"Taury, Patsy, Sid and Trike, Pterence, Steggy, what a sight!
It's "Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs" --- for the first time ever on DVD! If you and/or your kids haven't already, it's time to 1 2 3 jump into this fantastic series in which Harry visits a land of imagination called Dino World. Harry has a very special bucket of dinosaurs, which he got from his Nana. These dinosaurs are no ordinary dinosaur toys --- around Harry and his friend Charley (/Charlie --- the spelling is never consistent) these dinosaurs actually come to life. These dinosaurs are loaded with personally. There's Patsy --- a kindly female dinosaur who's fond of using unusual phrases such as "It's hotter than a firecracker in July!" As a pterodactyl, Pterence is a flier. He's often shy and hesitant to speak up, but his wings give him a huge advantage when it comes to sports and certain other tasks. Steggy is a worrywart and something of a hypochondriac. He never jumps in head-first, but is also ready for fun like the other dinosaurs.
Three down, three to go. Taury is a Tyrannosaurus Rex, but hardly a fearsome tyrant. He's an absolute fun-lover and something of a leader. Sid is a cool and analytical type. He wears glasses and knows a lot, but he certainly doesn't know it all. "My calculations indicate that the risk of danger is far less than the risk of fun" is a typical Sid statement. Finally, Trike is a triceratops. He's somewhat of a comic personality, often taking hard knocks. His large horns sometimes pose problems for him.
Based on a series of books by Ian Whybrow, "Harry" premiered in the United States on Cartoon Network's "Tickle U" block. That block no longer exists, but they still air the show from time-to-time. In each episode, Harry and his dinosaurs explore topics that range from everything from not wanting to take a bath to having a cold and not being well enough to play. This DVD features five stories, which I'll give brief summaries of:
Harry is scared by a monster, and doesn't even know where it came from. He thinks he'll be safe from the monster in Dino World, but once there, it shows up and starts chasing him.
Harry has an overdue library book about dinosaurs. He loves the book so much that he never wants to return it. But when he takes it to Dino World to hide it, it comes to life and insists on being returned to the library!
Harry gets into time-tripping trouble when he breaks his mother's favorite teacup. He and his friend Charley/Charlie jump into Dino World to try to fix it, but end up trying to turn the hands of time.
"Nobody's Listening to Me!"
When Harry feels that nobody is listening to his story, he heads to Dino World to find someone who will. His dinosaurs follow, but when they all start arguing, they lose their voices. The voices end up in a big ball in Echo Canyon, overseen by a frog with a southern-drawl named Clem.
Harry won't play fair at soccer. Charley/Charlie isn't very good at it (yet) and Harry tries to leave her out.
If any of this sounds like fun to you or your kids, then "Harry" is definitely a show worth watching. The animation is extremely fun and eye-catching to watch and the stories convey a true sense of fun and laughter that truly fit with that Tickle U block (which was all about shows designed to help kids laugh.) And this show teaches excellent lessons as well.
Oh --- and the episodes featured on this DVD are close-captioned with Dolby Digital sound. It doesn't have any special features except trailers for other shows, but it's still a neat DVD."
My son loves it!!!

"My son is four and loves dinosaurs. I happened to see this DVD and thought I would see how he liked it. He LOVES it! I think this DVD has about four episodes and he watches it over and over. A great hit in my house!"

"I bought this DVD (along with the books) about Harry and dinosaurs for my 2 year old son. He loves watching the shows! In fact, my two older girls who are 7 and 5 also love to watch the shows. They really appeal to children who love dinosaurs. It does remind me a bit of Dragon Tales though."
