The dog days of summer are officially here, and while its unbearably hot out there right now, it won’t be long now before fall sets in. With the return of fall also comes the annual return of the official start of the holiday season, Halloween. Many people refuse to accept that Halloween opens the holiday season, but it does. In anticipation of Halloween’s return, PBS Distribution is getting families everywhere in the holiday spirit a little early with the upcoming release of Ready jet Go!’s debut DVD, Ready Jet Go!: Jet’s First Halloween. Set for release August 28, this single disc episode collection is another fun Halloween offering for the whole family. That is due in no small part to the stories featured in the collection. They will be discussed shortly. The lessons tied into the stories also play collectively into the DVD’s presentation and will be discussed a little later. The DVD’s average price point rounds out its most important elements. Each element noted here is important in its own right to the whole of Ready Jet Go!: Jet’s First Halloween. All things considered, they make this DVD a presentation that is a great early Halloween treat for the whole family.
PBS Distribution’s debut Ready Jet Go! DVD Jet’s First Halloween is a great early Halloween treat for the whole family. That is due in no small part to the stories that make up the DVD’s main body. The story of Jet’s first Halloween is the collection’s central story. This story follows Jet and his parents as they celebrate Halloween for the very first time on Earth. From learning about carving jack-o-lanterns to dressing up and crafting a haunted house, Jet and his family have lots of fun in their first holiday experience. This is all despite Mitchell’s efforts to figure out what the Propulsion family is really up to. There’s even a “witch” riding a broom in front of the red “harvest” moon as an added treat for Jet and his friends. If that’s not enough family friendly fun, audiences also get to see Jet and his friends try to dig to the center of the Earth in ‘Digging Earth.’ The group even uses Sydney’s favorite comic book character, Commander Cressida as motivation. Viewers of all ages will enjoy watching to see how deep the kids can go. ‘Mindy’s Mystery,’ which is in fact the parent episode to ‘Digging Earth’ – both episodes are from the series’ debut season along with ‘Jet’s First Halloween’ – follows Jet and his friends as they try to figure out what sweet aroma is keeping Mindy awake at night. The answer is surprising to say the least. Mitchell also has his own problem as he’s trying to figure out what bright light is keeping him awake. Given, the latter pair of episodes is not Halloween-themed, but are still enjoyable in their own right, and in turn, add to the DVD’s overall presentation. They also present lessons that add their own enjoyment to the DVD’s presentation, too.
The lessons tied into the DVD’s stories are so enjoyable in part because of how subtly they are written into the stories. It’s obvious to older audiences that they are there. However, their addition to the stories is just subtle enough that younger viewers won’t even know they’re being educated while also being entertained. Case in point, the lesson in the DVD’s title episode on why the moon turns red. Viewers will be interested to learn about how the sun’s light is dispersed, leading to the red coloring. What’s more, learning about the moon’s rotation in relation to that of the Earth after the fact helps deepen that understanding even more. The geology lesson connected to ‘Digging Earth’ and the dual astronomy/botany lesson tied into ‘Mindy’s Mystery’ show the reach of the show’s educational content. This is another positive to note. Simply put, the lessons are so well balanced with the stories themselves that audiences get plenty of education and entertainment all at the same time. Interestingly enough, some of the lessons, even parents might not know. To that end, it adds to the importance of the lessons since parents might get educated just as easily as children. Keeping this in mind, this DVD offers plenty for audiences to appreciate in terms of the content. They are not the only positives to note in examining the DVD’s whole Its average price point is just as notable.
The average price point of Ready Jet Go!: Jet’s First Halloween is only $5.98. That price was reached by averaging the DVD’s price from America’s four biggest retailers – Target, Best Buy, Amazon and Wal-Mart – and PBS’ own online store. Adding taxes (and not counting shipping), that still puts the DVD’s average price at just over $6.00 Considering the amount of entertaining and educational content presented throughout the DVD’s 55-minute run time, that is not a bad price at all. Considering that this content is family friendly – meaning parents would be safe leaving kids to watch it themselves or parents could watch with their kids – it suffices to say that this is roughly $6.00 well-spent. Keeping all of this in mind, Ready Jet Go!: Jet’s First Halloween proves to be a great early Halloween treat for the whole family from PBS Distribution.
PBS Distribution’s debut DVD from its hit animated series Ready Jet Go!: Jet’s First Halloween is a great early Halloween treat for the whole family. That is due, as noted, in part to the family friendly stories featured in each episode. The stories will have the whole family laughing and fully engaged from start to end. The lessons included as part of each story do just as much as the stories themselves to keep viewers engaged. The DVD’s price rounds out its most important element. Each element noted here is important in its own way. All things considered, they make the DVD – again – a great early Halloween treat for the whole family. It will be available August 28 in stores and online. It can be pre-ordered online via PBS’ online store. More information on the DVD is available online along with printables, activities and more at:
