What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this series is relatively harmless. With their colorful costumes, psychedelic house, very special bus, and eternal cheeriness, the Doodlebops could be the most annoying characters ever -- for adults. But ultimately, they're sincere and sweet enough to win over most children. You'll find songs, dancing, games, magic, and silliness galore, all aimed at the preschool set.

A Little Wierd Looking

The characters aren't bad or anything. But they just look weird. My children actually find their looks a little unnerving.

What's the story?

THE DOODLEBOPS are a rock band, a puppet show, a comedy group, and a dance troupe all in one. The characters -- Deedee, Rooney, and Moe Doodle -- are funny and goofy, and everything they do is set against a zany bright backdrop. They have a talking cat and their own special tour bus, and they sing and dance like crazy. All of these elements are embedded to promote understanding and appreciation of music and to jumpstart kids' creative development.

Is it any good?

Somewhere between Pee Wee's Playhouse and Magical Mystery Tour, this is a charming, silly, and funny show that young children are sure to enjoy. Kids will want to sing and dance along, and parents can help them make their own instruments and funny costumes. The performers' sincerity makes what could easily be extremely annoying into a charming and entertaining show.
