  1. Wow! My son has one of the DVD's and I watched some of it, but I never realized that each episode has a different genre. I really liked the one that had the blues type music. For a second I thought of Ella Fitzgerald and Queen Latifah's last release. I'll have to pick up some more DVD's...

  2. It's great how the kids get exposed to all those great musical types, isn't it?

  3. I love that every episode has a different style of music. I just wish that all of the DVD's were available I would collect every one.

  4. Well, there is one out right now (It's Great To Be A Ghost) and you can look forward to the next one coming out Nov. 8 (The Snow Fort)! That's 8 episodes. Only 12 more to go ... :)

    The episode is "Cave Party" not "Cave People". It's just a small mistake I've noticed.
