My daughter, Jillian, has loved The Fresh Beat Band since the first moment they hit Nickelodeon. We have a video of her dancing to “Loco Legs” when she was like 2 years old and it cracks me up to this day. The latest DVD to come from The Fresh Beat Band is The Wizard of Song. We happened to catch the title episode when it ran on Nickelodeon and Jill was hooked. She’s a fan of The Wizard of Oz, so she immediately loved this episode. Here’s some background info:
Jason Mraz and Sarah Chalke guest star in the brand-new DVD, Fresh Beat Band: The Wizard of Song. In the title episode, Marina gets swept up into a windstorm and lands in Oz where she meets Glinda the Good Witch played by Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), befriends a Scarecrow (Twist), a Tin Woods-Woman (Kiki), and a Lion (Shout). They set off on a journey to find the Wizard of Song (Jason Mraz) so he can help Marina get back home. In addition, preschoolers can enjoy two bonus episodes from the hit live-action series.
Fresh Beat Band: The Wizard of Song Episode Synopses
The Wizard of Song
When Marina gets swept up into a windstorm, she lands in Oz where she meets Glinda the Good Witch (Sarah Chalke). Along the way, she befriends a Scarecrow (Twist), a Tin Woods-Woman (Kiki), and a Lion (Shout) and they go to the Wizard of Song (Jason Mraz) so that Marina can find her way home.
The Fresh Beats run into a ghost band when they get a gig in a western town. They face-off against the ghosts in a musical showdown and discover that the ghosts are misunderstood. So they work together to bring people back to the town.
Chimps in Charge
The Fresh Beats help their friend Harper babysit a pair of chimps who are a lot to handle. Marina gets the idea to build a jungle gym for the chimps in the park and the Fresh Beats find a perfect song to rock their show.
All three episodes on the DVD are great and perfect for our hot, and sometimes rainy, afternoons. I love that The Fresh Beat Band gets my kids up and movin’ and groovin’ with the songs.
