Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This raucously fun special strikes the perfect chord by preserving Willems' charmingly simple illustrative style while delivering musical numbers that are supremely satisfying. Giving the genius of Mo Willems the 3D-animated treatment for the first time is no small task, especially when there's already a successful live musical to live up to, but Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Underground Rock Experience does it with apparent ease. As any fan of Mo Willems would expect, it's clever, funny, and tenderly endearing, and there's even a trademark cameo in there too. As in his books, the humor here is playfully varied, using word play, site gags, and subverted expectations around every turn -- basically everything young kids will love. Mix that with ridiculously good lyrics, melodies, and vocal performances, and every minute of this story is kept fresh and enthralling. Which is a very good thing, because there are important themes of self-acceptance, open-mindedness, and standing up to peer pressure layered into all the silliness. This is a special you'll want your kids to watch again and again.
