What We're Watching

Here are the DVDs that have been in rotation at our house over the last few weeks:

  • Strawberry Shortcake Happily Ever After – For girls who love fairy tales and Strawberry Shortcake, what more could you ask for in a DVD? Happily Ever After puts a strawberry twist on the classic Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel tales.
  • Space Buddies – In this third “Buddies” flick (Air Buddies and Snow Buddies came first), five adorable puppies stow aboard an unmanned mission to the moon. Cute premise, cute dogs with dumb stereotypical personalities (girl dog wears a bow and loves clothes, fat dog loves to eat, etc.) but Anya likes it. That’s all I’ll say.
  • Care Bears Care a Lot Collection and Oopsy Does It– Fans of the classic Care Bears may appreciated the Care a Lot Collection but be prepared for really terrible production quality in addition to the cornball scripts. The more recent Oopsy Does It is computer-generated so it has a totally different look and feel. To be honest, these are the DVDs I want to lose but Anya keeps asking for them.
  • The Penguins of Madagascar – Sold only in the Move It! Move It! Double Pack of Madagascar Back 2 Africa, this DVD features two episodes from the upcoming Nickelodeon series. The penguins were my favorite part of Madagascar so I like seeing them as the stars and Anya likes penguins.
  • Cinderella III: A Twist in Time – I’d like to take this opportunity to embarrass my husband by sharing that he readily admits that this second Cinderella sequel is “not bad.” The stepmother and stepsisters steal the Fairy Godmother’s wand, reverse time and make the shoe fit stepsister Anastasia instead of Cinderella.
