Product Description

Amazon.ca

A great way to introduce or underscore the value of Mother Goose, this video uses a simple story about Huckle Cat's search for his missing friend Lowly Worm as a platform for enjoying the famous rhymes. While his mother sings lullabies, Huck wishes on a star that he could find Lowly soon, a wish that carries over into his subsequent dream of traveling through Mother Gooseland. There he meets familiar characters--Old King Cole, Little Miss Muffett, Little Bo Peep--who sing their own rhymes. It's Old King Cole who sends Huck directly to Mother Goose for help. This is a good video for assorted ages. Toddlers are easily enchanted by the cadence and rhymes of Mother Goose material, while the 2-to-5-year-old set can enjoy the story, too. The rest of us can appreciate the wonderfully busy animation and the touching tale of a boy's search for his friend. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars adorably sung, easy to listen to Oct. 4 2003
Format:DVD
I adore this DVD. If you loved Richard Scarry books as a kid, you will have every reason to appreciate this DVD. Huckle leads you through Mother Goose Land on a search for Lolly Worm and on the way meets many of the characters from the Mother Goose books. The songs are simple, sweet, and well sung with good accompanying music. Runs at about 30 minutes with no replay feature, but well worth the buy. My 15 month old daughter is fixated on this video.

I'm not a big fan of TV/videos for young children, but this DVD is one of the few exceptions in our house. My 2 year old son loves Huckle and Lowly the worm -- since we have a Mother Goose book, the songs are all familiar to him and that much more fun to see in action. The animation is not jerky and fast like some other videos and is a perfect 30 minutes in length. Definitely recommend this one for the preschoolers!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm so glad I gave it a chance Oct. 28 2002

I bought this video sight unseen by default when my children's book club sent it to me by accident. It turned out to be one of the happiest accidents ever.
At first I assumed that my then-two-year-old son would be bored by a musical story of little animated animals wandering through Mother Goose land (This is a kid who worships Bob the Builder). One day I put it in when a favorite TV show was preempted by the news, and he was entranced. Soon the production-quality tunes were stuck in both our heads and we could be heard 'round the house singing "little Bo Peep" and "Three Little Kittens who lost their mittens". This a great way to memorize nursery rhymes and they will stick with him for life.
In a world of slickly animated action cartoons designed to plug kids for merchandise, this Richard Scarry video is a breath of fresh air your family should not be without.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT! Aug. 28 2001

I ordered this video for my son about a week ago and he won't watch anything else. I'm very impressed with Scarry's interpretation of the Mother Goose tales. It is a *very* well done, tasteful adaptation, with several twists of humor and irony for the parents' enjoyment. It is short and sweet, and leaves one with a good dose of the "warm fuzzies." It is my favorite medium for teaching Mother Goose so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top-notch video for your little ones Oct. 24 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is a WONDERFUL video, innocent, sweet and magical. The animation is delightful, in visually appealing colors that will remind you of your favorite Mother Goose Book. The characters are fun and imaginative, articulate and soothing. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the "Merry Old King Cole" segment. To top it all off, the singing is absolutely incredible, with no less than broadway-quality voices. You will even find yourself singing these songs. After watching this video several times, I had the song "Little Boy Blue" in my head. So one morning I started singing it as I was getting my daughter dressed...she stopped to listen and then clapped afterwards. This video is a must for your little one's collection, and is worthy of passing down from generation to generation.
