Staying young with The Backyardigans!

Yay...!!! Managed to catch my fav "The Backyardigans" at 9.30 am this morning, whooooweeee....!!!

This show is an animated musical-adventure series aimed at children between the ages of 2 and 10. In each episode, the show's 5 friends - Tyrone, Uniqua, Pablo, Austin and Tasha rely on their vivid imaginations to transform their backyard into completely different worlds, in which they go through many sorts of stories and adventures. 

The time frame of the show can range from a few hours to more than one full day, but in reality, the story always ends just in time for one of them to invite the others for an afternoon tea snack. 

The imaginary story then reverts back to their backyard, and the characters all rush to the house of the person who offered the snack. 

The episode also focuses on music and dancing as much as they do on the stories, with each one featuring a different music genre (such as big band, reggae, sphagetti western, polka, Motown, and disco) and four new songs, usually with at least one arrangement of a well-known "traditional" song. 

I love watching them dance, they do it so so professionally... :-D

So, one day they could be pirates in a ship, princes and princes' in castles.. 

The next day, they could be secret agents...

Or deep sea explorers and mermaids..
