Nickelodeon’s Emmy award winning live action preschool music series, the Fresh Beat Band, makes its DVD debut with Jason Mraz and Sarah Chalke guest starring Fresh Beat Band: The Wizard of Song. In the title episode, Marina gets swept up into a windstorm and lands in Oz where she meets Glinda the Good Witch played by Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), befriends a Scarecrow (Twist), a Tin Woods-Woman (Kiki), and a Lion (Shout). They set off on a journey to find the Wizard of Song (Jason Mraz) so he can help Marina get back home. The Fresh Beat Band: The Wizard of Song includes the following episodes:
The Wizard of Song: When Marina gets swept up into a windstorm, she lands in Oz where she meets Glinda the Good Witch (Sarah Chalke). Along the way, she befriends a Scarecrow (Twist), a Tin Woods-Woman (Kiki), and a Lion (Shout) and they go to the Wizard of Song (Jason Mraz) so that Marina can find her way home.
Ghost Band: The Fresh Beats run into a ghost band when they get a gig in a western town. They face-off against the ghosts in a musical showdown and discover that the ghosts are misunderstood. So they work together to bring people back to the town.
Chimps in Charge: The Fresh Beats help their friend Harper babysit a pair of chimps who are a lot to handle. Marina gets the idea to build a jungle gym for the chimps in the park and the Fresh Beats find a perfect song to rock their show.
Thanks to Nickelodeon and Paramount, my youngest son and I had the opportunity to watch Fresh Beat Band: The Wizard of Song together. My son loves to sing and dance so this DVD was right up his alley! I liked the The Wizard of Song episode the best because it was like The Wizard of Oz, but my son loved the Chimps in Charge episode. (I think he liked it best because he’s about as energetic as those chimps!) If your child hasn’t had the opportunity to experience the Fresh Beat Band, I highly recommend you tune in to an episode on Nickelodeon – they will love it!
Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution, Fresh Beat Band: The Wizard of Song is available at retail stores nationwide as well as online at Amazon.com for the suggested retail price of $14.99 and is 88 minutes in length.
