On March 8th, Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment released The Backyardigans: We Arrrr Pirates on DVD!  My boys love watching The Backyardigans and I have to admit that I often find myself watching (and sometimes even singing) along with them.  You can purchase The Backyardigans: We Arrrr Pirates on DVD online and in stores, retailing for $16.99.

In every episode of The Backyardigans, five high-spirited neighbors meet in their adjoining backyards and use their imaginations to transform themselves into different locations for epic adventures.  Each half-hour episode of this Emmy Award-winning show features a unique music/dance genre with four original songs, along with real choreographed movements recreated in animation.


Pirate Camp

Captain Austin trains Uniqua and Pablo at Pirate Camp with garage-band music blasting.  But training takes a turn for the worst when a fearsome ghost (Tasha) captures the great pirate captain.

Pirate Treasure

Captain Uniqua and Captain Austin sail the high seas in search of treasure with reggae playing.  If they don’t beat Captain Pablo and Captain Tyrone to it, they will have to walk the plank!

Sinbad Sails Alone

Set sail for adventure and mambo as Sinbad (Tyrone) encounters rough waters, Siren (Uniqua), and Medusa (Tasha)!  The fate of the ship is in bumbling First Mate Pablo’s hands.

The Tale of the Not-So-Nice Dragon

The Not-So-Nice Dragon snatches up King Pablo and his Mighty Knights.  Now it’s up to the Flighty Fairy (Tasha) and the Grabbing Goblin (Austin) to rescue them!
