We bought It's Great to Be a Ghost for my son's birthday and he's been watching it several times a DAY. Fortunately, The Backyardigans are amusing and witty!
With a run-time of 49 minutes, this VHS includes 2 features:
IT'S GREAT TO BE A GHOST!
Pablo, Tyrone and Uniqua are ghosts, haunting an old house to the sounds of '20s-style jazz. When unsuspecting Tasha drops by, they really put their scaring skills to the test! (In this episode, it's interesting to see the ghost-like renderings of the characters. The animators have done a top-notch job!)
60s-style rock underscores Tyrone's adventures as a no-nonsense detective helping his client Uniqua to retrieve her soccer ball from the castle of the Soccer Monster (Pablo)! (My son goes around the house growling SOCCER MONSTER!)
It's Great To Be A Ghost is a wonderful video that will be sure to enrapture children. However, because The Backyardigans are so amusing, witty, and colorful--featuring great toe-tapping songs and vibrant animation--don't be surprised if you, as an adult, fall in love with it, as well!
