My daughter has been obsessed with birthdays the past few weeks thanks to this new DVD release and because we recently celebrated my birthday. As much as my daughter loves cartoons of all sorts and animals, Dora is one of her favorites, so new episodes are always welcomed with open arms. I also appreciate the variety as I probably know the dozens of episodes almost as well as my daughter and special episodes are always fun.
The storylines for movie-length episodes are more intricate than the usual half an hour shows, but the music, more involved story line and combination of familiar and novel characters keep the show entertaining and engaging. The storyline is reminiscent of the beloved story of the Wizard of Oz, complete with Wicked Witches and flying monkeys so be sure to watch it to notice all of the similarities.
This DVD is due to release Tuesday August 3rd, but will not air on Nickelodeon until August 15th at 8PM EST. This DVD is filled with loveable Wizzles episodes, and Dora’s Big Birthday Adventure is the final episode of the Magic Storybook Trilogy. Grab your copy online or at your favorite retailer starting tomorrow morning and check out the movie premier on Nickelodeon on August 15th!
