There are not many kids cartoons that I can stand these days. I long for the days of the Smurfs, Strawberry Shortcake, Punky Brewster, and the Shirt Tales. (Lord, I’m really showing my age!) If my kids watch cartoons, they are usually PBS cartoons, or some other kind of educational cartoon. (Krypto is our exception. 😉 )
One cartoon that I really do like is Wow!Wow!Wubbzy! because it teaches by example. It provides kids with a positive model and teaches skills such as honesty, cooperation, and fairness all while having fun! There are some really good lessons in this cartoon, and it’s something that I can watch with my kids and then discuss with them afterward.
Wow!Wow!Wubbzy! released a new video on February 3rd called A Little Help From My Friends. The DVD features six great episodes, all focused on the important values of friendship. This theme takes center stage as Wubbzy, a fun, lovable, curious little guy and his Wuzzleburg pals search for a lost Wiggle Wrench, escape a runaway Doodleberry Cake, build a Super Robot, teach Walden to boogie, and work hard for Wuzzleburg trophies. Together they discover the importance of positive values like confidence, cooperation, teamwork and above all, the meaning of friendship. The DVD extras also include two bonus episodes, music video, Kooky Kostume game, activities and sneak peeks. We got the DVD, and my kids *loved* it. They didn’t move a muscle the entire time it was on. I was even able to catch up on the dishes while they watched. 🙂
Not only can you now purchase the DVD, but we parents can also get involved by visiting www.wubbzy.com. On that website, join the “Wubb Club,” sign up for the newsletter, read the Wubbzy Blog, and listen to Wubbzy podcasts. The site also provides fun activities, recipes, printable coloring pages, and much more! The site is really user friendly, and my kids love stopping by to check up on Wubbzy and his friends.
