What's the Story?
DANGER RANGERS follows the adventures of furry friends Sully (voiced by Jerry Houser), Burble (Kevin Michael Richardson), Burt (Mark Hamill), Kitty (Grey DeLisle), Gabriela (Tasia Valenza), Squeeky (Rob Paulsen), and Fallbot (John Kassir) as they help their fellow citizens learn to think and play safely. Whether they're putting out a fire or swimming to someone's rescue, parents can be reassured that the DR crew will both entertain and educate young viewers.
Is It Any Good?
One of the best things about Danger Rangers is that any kid can be "Danger Ranger Ready," since there are enough male and female characters to attract both boys and girls. Also, there's plenty of action to engage even the busiest kids, and the musical numbers will connect with any kid who loves to sing and dance.
Even more importantly, the show's essential messages are delivered clearly, without any scariness. In each episode, kids learn vital lessons about key safety issues -- from how to prevent a fire to how to play safe by the pool -- in a fun, upbeat way that isn't likely to upset them.
