Product Details

Product Description


Huckle, Lowly Worm, and rest of the schoolchildren are inspired by their teacher's discussion about different kinds of occupations and what people in those fields do all day. The kids run to the schoolyard for some make-believe, playing at what they'd like to be when they grow up. Huckle becomes a grocer like his father, Freddie Fox a baker specializing in mud pies, and Rhonda Raccoon a truck driver delivering baked goods. Consistent with the usual excellence of the Richard Scarry video series, Best Busy People introduces the concept of how a complicated society functions, with everyone's job having an impact on everyone else's. The jokes are funny, the songs are sweet, and Scarry's popular book What Do People Do All Day? makes great supplementary reading. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Video for small fry June 25 2003
By PeaTee
Format:VHS Tape
What I like about this video is the diversity of careers that it shows. Besides doctor, police and fire people --which are very predictable-- the video demonstrates that it is possible to make a living by being a grocer, pilot, farmers, builder, plumber, painter, or even travel agent.
What my 3 and 1 year olds like about it are the songs, the neat characters like Huckle the cat and Henrietta Hippo, and the silly situations that Richard Scarry is renown for. In one part, the baker (Able Baker Charlie) mixes in too much yeast into his dough and the situation quickly escalates into total mayhem in the bakery.
All in all, if I were to sum this video up I would say that it is downright fun as well as educational.

I started out by buying Richard Scarry's counting DVD. I loved it so much, I bought all the rest (minus the nursery rhymes DVD). My 2-year-old son really enjoys watching the movie, as does my 6-month-old daughter. I personally enjoy the DVD and its innocence. I like that it is simple yet captivating for them. It really holds their attention. I tend to be pretty particular when it comes to movies for my children, making sure they don't teach any bad habits and that it doesn't teach anything contrary to the Bible. I was very pleased to see there wasn't any reference to magic, fairies, etc, as many things tend to include such references these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must in Toddlers' Video Collection Sept. 23 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
My three years old son falls in love with Richard Scarry's stories. The video arouses little toddlers' curiosity to think about the topic: What would you like to do when you grow up. Same as the great Richard Scarry's stories, the artwork is adorable and the presentation is fantastic. With different characters, the toddlers can realise that there are many different jobs in the world. Everyone's job and contribution is very important in the BUSY TOWN.

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie has entertained my kids for 10 yrs Aug. 1 2002
Format:VHS Tape
My youngest, now 2, is seriously in love with this movie. Not only does she sing along to the whole movie, but also the clips that show after to promote other Busy People videos. We have had this video since my oldest started watching videos and it's never gone out of style, like Barney or Teletubbies. Plus it's a great learning video and the kids don't even realize it.
Today I ordered 4 more Richard Scarry videos to go with our current collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely one of the best children's videos. April 7 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Our son was passed down this video, along with the Counting, ABC's and Mother Goose tapes. He loves all of them, especially Busy People. It teaches about community, work ethic, teamwork and careers. This older series of Richard Scarry is a classic, as are the books that are also out. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a wonderful busy world Sept. 19 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Richard Scarry has created a world of variety, humor and niceness. His videos and books are richly detailed at the same time that the images' linear quality is rather spare, the colors simple. I mention the amount of detail because it may be over-whelming for very young kids. Our son could not really watch it until he was about 1-year old. In what amounts to a lot of mini-episodes the students in Miss Honey's class (children who are actually all different animals) dream of what they will do when they grow up. The video is one of Richard Scarry's that could appeal to a pre-talking child as many of the jobs are of a very visual nature--baker, truckdriver, firefighter, etc. A lot of information is packed into very short segments, but done in a humorous and enjoyable manner. Pacing is perfect for the very young. If you have never seen a Richard Scarry book or video you are in for a treat. He has really created a tangible, sweet world. I wonder if I am the only one that has compared it to the Andy Griffith show. Both paint the world as a welcoming place where people treat each other with respect and kindness. And who wouldn't want to live in a place whose buildings are human scale and which boasts an elementary school with a dramatic clocktower?
