My Take on the Videos
What a collection of great videos. I was surprised to find that Mill Creek was releasing these videos as I had looked for many of them in the past from our library (as my girls love a number of these shows, but alas could never find them. Now We have them all as a part of our own collection and to be honest, have to limit the television as they are so excited to have new videos of their favorite shows. On all the videos, fans will enjoy the continuation of great artwork and cartooning that went into the development of the videos. We loved having 10 episodes on each of the DVD's as we don't always see these shows during the day based on naps, school, after school activities and the like.

Overall, I would highly recommend these videos! For the number of videos that you receive, they are a great deal and ones that will keep you and your kids busy for quite some time! Enjoy!
