Wonder Pets! "Save the Nutcracker"

Spring 2009 DVD
Ages: 2 - 5 yrs.
Producer: Nickelodeon
DVD Price: $16.99
In Save the Nutcracker, the WonderPets team is called upon to rescue the Nutcracker from the Mouse King. True to the WonderPets' winning formula, classical music and wholesome messages take center stage. Here, the music is from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite ballet and the message is about being happy with what you have; a message timed for the Christmas gift-giving season. The message, presented in song to the mouse king, is designed to teach him to be happy with what he already has (thus suggesting he does not need to take the nutcracker). The song is presented again with the message about being happy with just one present, instructing viewers that a lot of presents are not necessary for happiness.

Six additional episodes are included: The WonderPets Save the Kangaroo (part parrot part kangaroo), the Cricket, the Mouse, the Bee and Slug, the Cow, and the Skunk.
