"She’s the busiest builder and fix-it whiz in Wuzzleburg, and Wubbzy’s good friend, too! And in these 6 “best of” episodes – plus one bonus episode – Widget modifies a road racer for the Wuzzleburg Derby, tries to become a ballerina, invents a solar-powered super-robot, builds the ultimate television, searches for her missing wiggle wrench and more! There are machines, workshop wonders, and plenty of good times with the Wuzzleburg crew, too! It’s all ‘No problemo’ for Widget at her very best! " 


My Thoughts:

I can't tell you how many DVD reviews I have done about the hit animated series, Wow! Wow! Wubzy!.  All I know is that we have a large collection of DVD that my daughters continually ask to watch.  And, over the past couple of weeks, as they laid around and tried to kick the stomach bug we picked up out and about, their favorite Wow! Wow! Wubzy! characters, helped make them feel better.  You shoudl have seen Savanah's eyes when she saw me taking this recent DVD out of the package.  Even though she had been laying around and didn't have much strength or the desire to do much, she mustered up the energy to quickly walk over to me in the kitchen and ask to watch this new release.  How could I say, "No."  So, as she got herself comfortable on the couch with her little sister, Arabella, they nestled in for an hour worth of Wow! Wow! Wubzy! (well 70 minutes, but who is counting :-) ).

This new release contains 6 popular Wow! Wow! Wubzy! episodes featuring Widget, who is Savannah's favorite character.  Out of the 6 episodes, and 1 bonus episode, I have to say both of my girls loved “Gotta Dance,” where Widget tries to become a ballerina, and “Gidget Super Robot, in which Widget invents a solar-powered Super Robot.  "Eggs Over Easy" was a close third. :-)

Fans of Widget or the Wow! Wow! Wubzy! show will love this new DVD, especially the bonus episode, "Where's My Wiggle Wrench."  I am especially loving these "Best Of" DVDs, which feature each of the Wow! Wow! Wubzy! cast.  As we wait for another Wow! Wow! Wubzy! DVD to release -- expect an Easter DVD soon," the girls will continue to ask to watch this and their other Wow! Wow! Wubzy! DVD's.  So, if you have a Wow! Wow! Wubzy! fan in your house, you will definitely want to pick up this recent release to add to their growing collection.
