The Nutshell

The Wiggles perform all their hits for a live audience.

Grizzly Park: The Musical

The Lowdown

I have to admit I had only heard of The Wiggles thanks to them being mentioned on Scrubs. I assumed they might be something my son would like and figured it was worth a try.

He loves stuff like this and is entertained by good, fun music, so when I put the DVD in the player and “Big Red Car” started playing, I figured this was a good selection. Hell, “Big Red Car”was the song name dropped in the Scrubs episodes!

I was sorely disappointed.

The Big Big Show DVD is a concert of the group performing live. There were a ton of kids in the audience, standing on their chairs and dancing along with the music. My son wasn’t interested, which makes me happy because this was not a fun experience to watch on TV.

Maybe you just had to be there.

For those uninitiated, such as myself, The Wiggles started working together in 1991 in Sydney, Australia. It makes since why I never heard of them because I turned 21 in 1991, so I missed the boat on this one. I am sure a lot of readers here might have fond memories since you were kids in the band’s heyday. You might like this better than I did.

The group performed all their hit songs and the kids at the show loved it. I can understand why they are popular to younger kids so, if you have one, give it a try. I just don’t plan to pop it back in for my son anytime soon. This just wasn’t entertaining to me.

The joke from Scrubs was more entertaining than actually watching it live.

The Package

There are two special features on the DVD, a live show prelude and a song clip from “Clean Your Teeth.” There is also a photo gallery. The video quality is average and there are too many long shots from the back of the audience where they should have kept the cameras focused on the stage show for the kids at home to watch. The sound was just fine for a live performance.
