"I'm sure most people looking at this DVD are already familiar with the There Goes... series. They all feature Dave and sometimes Becky looking into some kind of vehicle or piece of equipment. Designed for children, they are very watchable by adults and are fairly educational, if for nothing else than the vocabulary.
What I like best about the DVD is that it contains 3 programs. It could fit 4 but hey it's better than wasting a whole DVD on less than 30 minutes like many other children's titles. With the individual videos selling for as much as [$], getting three on a DVD for [$$](...) is a good deal. Now that I've eliminated VHS in my house, it is nice to see multi-program DVDs like this one and I hope to see more in the future...
I have just a few comments about this DVD in regards to the content. I really didn't find any of the scenes too "scary" or irresponsible as few others have described. There is some comedy about Dave falling in the garbage, but there are also several examples of safety commentary in the program as there are in all the Real Wheels tapes."
These are the worst ever!

"My son loves "real life" trucks and big machines, so I thought these would be fun for him to watch. They are not, in fact they don't even hold his attention. Dave talks way too much and is way too goofy even for little kids. Just show the trucks in action and forget all the up close stuff on Dave. I have since bought the I Love CAT Machines series and they are fantastic."
It is about the actor rather than the tricks

"I do not show this to my grandson any more. it is more about a man who appears to be stupid, who does crazy things to try to b e funny. This is not the image of a construction worker that I want him to see. The trucks are good, though, if you can get past, "I shouldn't have done that!""
There goes a firetruck

"I have a son who has learned so much from the There goes a... series. I was very pleased to find out the series is now being released on DVD. I already own many in the series on video. Now that I have a DVD player I am looking forward to purchasing the rest of the series I do not have on DVD. My son is absolutely enamored with Dave and likes to pretend he is Dave when he plays with his cars and trucks. It is also the most popular birthday party gift I buy for my sons friends. It makes an ideal gift. Thanks to the people at Theres goes a ... series for creating what I feel are the best childrens videos on the market. We look forward too more new title's in the future."
