In "The Blag-Bludder Beast," we get to see the famous Yertle the Turtle get into trouble. Yertle is running from the last place he decided to "help" when he stumbles into a swampy pond filled with garbage. It turns out to be the site where the people of Troomph have been dumping trash to appease the scary but never-seen Blag-Bludder Beast. Well, when Yertle appears from the pond covered in garbage, he scares the Troomphians who were dumping garbage and hide their eyes to avoid being attacked. When Yertle turns around and knocks off the trash, the Troomphian thinks Yertle managed to vanquish the wicked creature, he becomes a hero in Troomph! However, as Yertle often does, he takes advantage of the situation and eventually gets the Troomphians angry at him even as they learn the Blag-Bludder Beast isn't scary at all!
And finally, in "Norval the Great" we meet Binkham Tamino McDoyal the Third, who everyone calls Binky. He tells his friends that Norval is a talking goldfish and that they've gone on great adventures together. Though his friends don't believe him at first, Binky tells a heck of a story that takes them to a tropical island, into space, and home again. Could the fish really talk? Did Norval and Binky really have the adventures? You'll have to watch to find out!
Now, beyond the three episodes on the DVD there are a few trailers for other Lionsgate releases, but that's it. I would have liked to have seen another episode or two at the least, or perhaps some extras of some kind on the disc. That said, the three episodes we watched were a lot of fun, mixing Muppets and Dr. Seuss to great effect for kids and parents alike.
If you're a fan of Dr. Seuss and the Muppets and want to see this interesting combination, I'd definitely recommend you check out The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss - There is Nothing to Fear in Here! at your local rental or retail counter. I'm hoping the entire series is released on DVD so we can see more of the "Wubbulous World" in the near future. For more about this and other Henson-produced shows, be sure to check out Henson.com.
