Anyone who watches Playhouse Disney regularly will know Bunnytown. When the show first premiered, Cordy was instantly obsessed with it. She loved the bright, colorful bunnies, the songs, and the funny skits. I noticed right away that the puppet style of the bunnies and the voices were very similar - turns out, they're made by the same folks who created Jack's Big Music Show on Noggin.
For those who don't know, Bunnytown is an entire world of bunnies. There are bunnies of every type - young school bunnies, scientist bunnies, bus driver bunnies - even pirate bunnies! Each episode features lessons on sharing, problem solving and teamwork, combined with lots of singing, music, humor and one or two bunny trips up to the "real" world for Silly Sports.
When Disney changed their lineup recently, Bunnytown was no longer on during a time when Cordy could watch. She asked where the pirate bunnies were, and would she see Space Bunny again soon? We had one episode Tivo'd, and while she never got tired of it, I wanted a little more variety than a single episode.
However, just this week Bunnytown: Hello Bunnies! was released on DVD! The DVD contains four episodes of Bunnytown, plus a sneak peek at the new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse movie "Mickey's Adventure in Wonderland."
Both of my girls are partial to childrens' programs with puppets versus animation, and Bunnytown has yet to leave the DVD player. The songs are catchy and upbeat without being too repetitive, and some of the scenes are genuinely funny for adults, too. Cordy and Mira would give it 5 stars (out of 5), and I give it 4.5 stars, only because it doesn't have auto-repeat, haha.
