Tamara Turner, Music Editor/Reviewer CD Baby.com

A brilliant children's album.
Thank goodness that, for most of us, we never really grow up all the way. We can still appreciate the thrills of our childhood- the Muppets, Blinky's Fun Club, and poor ol' Mr. Rogers. While this is delivered as a kids album (and a fine one at that!) it has enough fresh comedic spice and musical integrity to entertain adults as well, without conjuring up images of Barney in hell. Like a fun, jazzy meeting of Marty Moose meets Roger Rabbit meets Bugs Bunny and the Road Runner show, including everything from big band to ukelele songs to retro pop, this is an album that will serve as a bribe for good behavior as well as nurture simple, uncomplicated family fun.
