We received an advanced copy of the DVD to review. Having never seen this show before, I was not sure how much DD would like it. When I played the DVD for her, it took her a good 5 minutes to get into it, but by the time she finished the first episode, she was loving it. She ended up watching the entire DVD. Immediately afterwards, she asked to watch the entire DVD over again. As she watches the episodes, I could hear her laughing and yelling along with Fanboy and Chumchum. It is not every day that I hear my daughter screaming "Timber" and laughing hysterically at the same time. While the episodes offer a lot of hilarious story lines that tickle DD's funny bone, I really like the the show uses vocabularies that's beyond her years so that she could pick up new words while watching something she really enjoys. I would also like to mention that I really like the art work/animation. I thought that the characters are well designed and the art work/animation looks great.
The Fanboy & Chumchum DVD will be released on May 24th. Please visit stores where Nickelodeon DVD are sold to purchase this DVD.
