The Backyardigans - Super Secret Super Spy (2004) Review
(More customer reviews)This DVD contains the last episodes of Season Two of The Backyardigans, but luckily for us all, there's going to be a Season Three.
In a change of format, the first adventure is a double feature, rolled into one 60 minute spy movie named "International Super Spy (Parts 1 & 2)", complete with music, opening sequences, and lots of gadgets. Pablo plays Agent Secret, Tasha is the head of the secret service, and Austin is the kangaroo of many disguises as Pablo's faithful contact. Of course there must be villains, and this time Agent Secret is up against Uniqua, as the Lady in Pink and her evil henchman Tyrone, who looks like Odd Job. The assignment is to recover three cylinders before the bad guys do.
Modeled after the James Bond movies, this one provides excellent entertainment for all ages, with hot dance numbers and a guest appearance in voice over by Cyndi Lauper, the girl who knows how to have fun.
The next episode is "The Secret of Snow" where Uniqua seeks out Ice Lady Tasha to find the aforementioned secret. Austin is the Ice Lady's overworked and kind hearted assistant, while Pablo is a cowboy and Tyrone is a jungle dweller. This one is set to Christmas tunes including Jingle Bells, Good King Wenceslaus and Deck the Halls.
The show ends with "A Giant Problem" where Queen Uniqua's afternoon nap is rudely interrupted by the pitter patter of Tasha's giant feet. Silly sorcerers Tyrone and Pablo are commanded to chase the giant away, but aren't so sure they can handle such a big job. The music for this episode is immediately recognizable as `80s pop.
Another excellent Backyardigans DVD, and a must-have if you're a fan of the series.Amanda Richards, September 29, 2007
