Headsup: Kids’ Corner #2

Disclaimer: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment requests we note that it provided a free copy of the first title featured below. The opinions I share are my own.


Out now are three new titles to help your kids get in some laughter and adventure:

Elmo's Wonderful World DVDFirst we have Sesame Street: Elmo’s Wonderful World, where the beloved muppet takes his preschool audience on an exploration of sharing, counting, kindness, playing dress up, meeting bees, and more.  Along for the ride are Elmo’s friends Smartie, Mr. Noodle, and Mr. Noodle’s dog Schmoodle.  In addition to the thirteen new Elmo’s World episodes, bonus features on this one include two episodes of Sesame Street‘s new spin-off Furchester Hotel (a fun new show featuring Elmo and Cookie Monster as they try to help the well-meaning but less-than-competent Furchester-Fuzz family run an upscale hotel), along with three classic Elmo’s World Episodes (“Frogs,” “Violins,” and “Helping”).

Sesame Street: Elmo’s Wonderful World is out now from Warner Brothers on DVD, which includes over two hours of Elmo’s World episodes.  The DVD is now available on Amazon for $9.19 and you can get a taste of the show with the clip below.

Rating: Not Rated

Episode Runtime: 5-7 minutes




Powerpuff Girls Last DonnycornNext we have The Powerpuff Girls: The Last Donnycorn, where superhero sisters Bubbles (Kristen Li), Blossom (Amanda Leighton), and Buttercup (Natalie Palamides) fight villainous foes including yetis, mischievous fortune-tellers, and the ever-evil monkey Mojo Jojo.  The DVD is out now from Cartoon Network and includes twelve action-packled episodes from the show’s first and second seasons (including the Emmy Award nominated episode “Once Upon a Townsville” and the 30-minute special The Last Donnycorn, where Donny asks the trio for their help in saving Unicorn Land from some evil unicorns he accidentally released), as well as five The Powerpuff Girls minisodes.

The Powerpuff Girls: The Last Donnycorn is available on DVD on Amazon for $9.19.  For a preview of the show, check out the Evil Unicorn Battle clip below.

Mickey Roadster Racers Start Your EnginesLast but not least is Mickey and the Roadster Racers: Start Your Engines, which follows friends Mickey (Bret Iwan), Minnie (Russi Taylor), Donald (Daniel Ross), Daisy (Tress MacNeille), and Goofy (Bill Farmer) along with their transforming roadsters as they race across the world from Hot Dog Hills to Hawaii to London.  Adventures along the way include meeting a world-class spy, flying through the air in a souped-up hot air balloon race, and retrieving a precious ruby stolen from the queen.  The DVD includes six high octane episodes (“Agent Double-O-Goof”, “It’s Wiki Wiki Time”, “Ye Olde Royal Heist”, “Abra-ka-Goof!”, “Guru Goofy”, and “Going Upppppppppp!”) as well as bonus episode “Goof Luck Charm”.

Mickey and the Roadster Racers: Start your Engines is out today from Disney on DVD and is available on for $12.96, from Barnes & Noble for $14.61, and on for $16.95 (nothing on Amazon as of this writing, but hopefully that will change soon).  For a clip, check out the link below.
