I bought this video for my son's birthday, and he's been watching it every single day--sometimes more than once a day!
With a run-time of 48 minutes, Max and Ruby's Halloween features 6 episodes:
Max wants to be a vampire for Halloween, but Ruby needs a little prince to match her Cinderella costume. Will max choose the tricks over the treats?
RUBY'S LEAF COLLECTION
One fall day, Ruby asks Max to help with her Leaf Collection Book. Max loves collecting leaves--maybe a little too much!
THE BLUE TARANTULA
Max wants Ruby to read him the tale of "The Blue Tarantula". Will the scary story keep her brother up all night?
RUBY'S PANDA PRIZE
At the fair, Ruby really wants to win a panda prize. But will Max's jellyball obsession get in the way?
RUBY'S ROLLER SKATES
Ruby needs to practice so that she can roller-skate to Grandma's house, but Max's tow truck game keeps getting in the way.
The Bunny Scouts can't tell their scary campfire story until Ruby gets Max to sleep. But Max wants to hear the scary story...and make it scarier, too!
I'm really not sure what it is about Max & Ruby that enthralls my son so much. In an era of CGI animation, snazzy songs, and fast-paced action, he consistently watches his other Max & Ruby DVD, and now, this video. Ruby is gently bossy, trying to get Max to do what she wants. Max, of course, has his own ideas! (And like my husband asked me the other day "Where in the world is the mother in this series?")
But my son really enjoys Max & Ruby and it's great that parents and caregivers won't have to worry about innuendo, MTV-paced sequences, shrillness or meanness with these characters.
