The Backyardigans: Christmas With The Backyardigans Episode Synopses:

The Big Dipper Diner

  • Waitress Uniqua and Cook Pablo meet their hungriest customer yet when Hugs, a sweet little space alien, drops into their space diner. But an almost identical space alien, the Blarg, is also in the neighborhood shrinking things.

The Amazing Splashinis

  • The Amazing Splashinis (Uniqua, Tyrone, and Pablo) astound with their incredible synchronized dives. But practicing their latest dive becomes close to impossible when they discover a Sea Monster in the pool

This is a really fun DVD to ring in the holidays! My kids have watched the movie (which was provided to me for review) several times. The animation is exciting and the music keeps  kids entertained and eyes glued to the TV set! I’ll admit that we watch the TV program often and the Christmas With the Backyardigans DVD is just as good, if not better! My kids have really enjoyed it, especially my 1 and 3 year old sons.
