THE PLOT THUS FAR
WHAT WE THOUGHT
What fascinated me about Go, Diego Go! Diegos Arctic Rescue is the fact that the show represents the food chain within the animal kingdom without watering it down. There is a scene in the show in which a Puffin dives into the water to get some fish. Instead of just pulling some inanimate fish from a backpack or satchel the Puffin dives into the water, chases some live fish, catches them and feeds them to the smaller Puffin. Not only that but the Puffin finds itself on the menu while diving as well. While some parents might find it a bit disturbing for their small children to witness the natural process of the animal food chain in action I commend the show for putting that information out there as bluntly as it does.
The disc also comes with a bonus episode about saving polar bears. It’s more of the same as the first, but you get a slight change of scenery. Younger kids will freak out and clamor for more interactivity fun. There’s some forced use of Spanish that doesn’t allow for deep understanding. It’s like they expect your kids to copy everything onscreen.
