Fun Adventure Movie for Preschoolers

  • Feb 20, 2008
Pros: Good special features including games and Stanley episode

Cons: Little educational value

The Bottom Line: This is an enjoyable movie for preschoolers, although it has little educational value if that is what you are looking for in preschool entertainment.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot.

This movie features Olie and his family having a birthday party for Zowie, his little sister. The party keeps getting messed up, though, because Gloomy, a pirate like robot, keeps trying to keep them from having fun. Thus Olie, Zowie, and Billy, Olie’s square bot friend, become Defenders of Fun to save not just the party from being Gloomy, but their whole planet. In the movie they save their planet from being blue as well as save Pappy from being gloomy due to his happy gear being out of wack and they even figure out whole to my Gloomy happy. Overall this is a fun futuristic cartoon show that preschoolers can enjoy watching, although it does not really have much educational value besides teaching how to be a friend to even your enemies.

The DVD has some fun special features that the kids can enjoy. One is a game to find Pappy’s teeth. In the game you hit enter on the remote when a hiding spot is highlighted to see if that is where the teeth are hiding. There are three areas to search for the teeth. Another special feature is rebuilding the kid bots, such as Olie, Zowie, and Billy. In this you select the right robot parts to put them back together. There is also color a bot in which you can choose one of six colors to color the kid bots. Additionally there is a bonus cartoon you can watch by selecting this option in the special features. It is an episode of Stanley, which is about a young kid who likes animals. This particular episode is about Stanley and his friends learning about how dolphins communicate in order to secretly plan a party for Stanley’s dog.

Another special feature is a map of the different planets in the Polie Galaxy. Here you select a planet or star and Olie tells you about it. This is a good introduction to the world this cartoon is set in, especially if kids have not seen the cartoon before. Thus I recommend this special feature before watching the movie rather than after like most special features.
