My boys and I were not familiar with this show prior to receiving this DVD.  But we were all easily swept into the fun.  Those that have an affinity for The Wizard of Oz will especially like this silly DVD.  This is a great way to introduce the basics of the story to those who might be afraid of the original.  I love children’s shows with real actors, and based on this DVD so do my boys.

The Fresh Beat Band:  The Wizard of Song is available in stores August 14th, 2012!
