“Caillou’s Can Do Collection” is a compilation of three prior DVDs featuring Caillou doing what he does. Teaching kids and whining about things. The kid hangs out with his younger sibling, learns to be a hero and then explores the greater world. Still, it’s a four year old kid that looks he’s about to be visited by the Make-A-Wish foundation. The DVD comes with coloring pages and activities as the special features.
“Pee-wee’s Playhouse” has its third, fourth and final seasons arrive on DVD for the first time. Doesn’t that sound crazy? Well, it was because there are fewer episodes here due to a mix of an industry production strike and the filming of “Big Top Pee-wee”. The Christmas Special looks even better than the HD copy streaming on Netflix. When Shout Factory said that they went back to the original film for the remaster, they weren’t even kidding.
The DVD sports new interviews with the cast and crew. Other than that, you don’t get anything else. That being said, it’s one of the greatest shows of the 1980s. Notice how I don’t call it a kid show, as the quality of entertainment far surpasses such a moniker. If you didn’t buy the massive Blu-Ray set, this is a worthy purchase.
“Yu-Gi-Oh” arrives on DVD with its first massive collection. You get eight episodes from the two major series and the Bonds Beyond Time feature film. Seeing as I’m over 30, none of that means anything to me. But, there is a gaggle of kids that likes sharing this stuff on the Tumblr, so I do it for them. The only real special feature is you can watch the feature film with the original Japanese language track. The English subtitles are clean without any botched translation efforts. The A/V Quality is sharp for standard definition and well worth a purchase to fans.
