So, do you like your juice box shaken or stirred?
Well, the James Bond-esque Pablo likes his shaken, thank-you-very-much!
This fantastic DVD includes the first Backyardigans movie ever, Super Secret Super Spy. Featuring hip jazz and kid-friendly James Bond references, Pablo--Agent Secret--is hot on the tail of Lady in Pink (Uniqua). With her henchman, Tyrone the Moose, the villains race around the world to obtain three containers with unknown contents.
Tasha the Hippo plays "Miss T", the head of the secret spy organization, while the purple kangaroo, Austin, dons various disguises as he provides Pablo with state-of-the art equipment (like a transmitting snowcone!) which gives Pablo his assignment.
Pablo's fast race car turns into a boat, helicopter, snowmobile and other modes of transportation (too cool!), and the music is top notch. In fact, he must peform certain dance moves in order to unlock the secret containers.
But what happens when the code needs two people to dance...and then three? Who will get the containers first? And, more importantly, what in the world is IN those three containers?!
From Switzerland to London, Super Secret Super Spy is a rousing movie that young fans (and adults!) will adore. My only criticism is the song that's supposedly sung by Cyndi Lauper. #1 The singing sounded like it was done by an amateur who could barely hit the high notes #2 It didn't sound like Cyndi Lauper! (So don't let THAT be a draw for you to buy this DVD...)
In addition to the Backyardigans first movie, this 100 minute DVD also includes the episode A Giant Problem (set to 80's-inspired pop music) as well as a Dirty Socks Funtime Band Music Video and "The Lady in Pink" Featurette. The Secret of Snow episode, which showcases Dixieland Jazz, is also featured on this DVD.
In addition to the catchy lyrics and fun plot, the colors really POP in this episode (how about that white tuxedoed Pablo racing down a highway in his cherry red convertible?) In fact, if you like that snazzy car, you can get the Super Secret Spy Vehicle here at [...]!
Another great DVD featuring the Backyardigans!
