This review is from: Manny's Green Team [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Features:

* Episodes:
o Saving the Turtles
o Manny Goes Solar
o Science Fair
o Light Work
o Bloomin' Tools
* "Livin' La Vida Verde" Game
* Manny's Green Checklist

As appealing as an environmentally conscious Handy Manny feature sounds, this is really just a good collection of episodes. Handy Manny: Manny's Green Team features a bonus episode, "Saving the Turtles," that does have a conservation theme, and there are some hooks in other episodes like "Manny Goes Solar," so your kids will get their dose of green television. The greatest thing about Handy Manny is that whether he's building a barn or setting up solar panels, he and his tools make for really good entertainment.

These episodes contain the same eye-popping style of clean, colorful animation seen throughout the show. The tools are featured quite a bit, such as episodes like "Bloomin' Tools" or "Science Fair." Like characters in their own right, the tools hang back and support Manny until the time comes to do the work. Kids will love the anticipation of waiting for that special job that requires their favorite tool, and Manny is consistently the kind of kid you hope yours will grow up to be. Themes like helping people and animals are here, as well as ideas for different uses of solar and wind energy that help the environment. Nothing preachy, mind you. Manny's Green Team is too cool for that.
