Really Wanted to Like This One...

"I am a Roseanne fan since forever, through thick and thin, and really wanted to love this. Though sometimes cute, it was just too cheesy in many respects. The singing was often subpar (even for a kid vid) and the Roseanne close-ups too frequent and too close. The Roseanne dressed as a little girl made me uncomfortable -- guess you just can't pull that off after a certain age. "Popcorn Poppin" was a cute song and story, but the animation was not only cheesy, it was downright scary. Also scary was the brown face makeup on the kids dressed as teddy bears in "Teddy Bears' Picnic." And she REALLY should have left "Three Little Birds" alone. On the positive side, I think my toddler liked it (seemed to hold his attention). "I'm Gonna Tell on You" was pretty funny and clever - two puppet sisters arguing. The Andrews Sisters-type number was also pretty good -- "Let the Kids Boogie," and Roseanne and the girls look great in their 40's outfits/hair. The animated "Peanut Butter and Jelly Fish" was clever and cute, too. My favorite was "Down on the Doughnut Farm" -- just because of the concept and because it was quintessential Roseanne. Also, those doughnuts looked seriously good! (Suggestion: put your shoes on while watching it -- you'll be compelled to run out for doughnuts as soon as its over.) I do hope the kiddies (and their grownups) like it more than I did. I really did want this to be good. I loved the motivation and intention behind it (quirky and for the kids), but for me, it simply missed the mark. Sorry, Rosie. :o( Do consult with me on the next one though! ;o)"

"Bought this DVD for my 4 year old niece's birthday. They played it during the entire birthday party! All the kids were dancing to Let the Kids Boogie - and it was so nice that the music was actually fun for the adults to listen to as well! Highly recommend this DVD for Kids!"

Packed with twelve fun-filled and lively tunes for children preschool through first grade, nine of the songs are original compositions, and one (Three Little Birds) is a Bob Marley classic.

The performances also blend live-action, colorful animation, funny puppets, costumes, and more. The styles of music range from rock, reggae, and country-western, to boogie-woogie, blues, and beyond. Very highly recommended for day school, preschool, kindergarten, family and community library children's music collections, Rockin' With Roseanne: Calling All Kids! is ideal for kids' parties, rainy day activities, and just anytime that lively, entertaining, "kid friendly" music is called for!
