DVD Review of Nickelodeon’s The Smurfs and Blossom’s Blueberry Bark Recipe

The Smurfs Season 1, Volume 1 will be released on DVD June 14th, 2022, featuring some iconic characters from the classic Smurf s with new art and new stories thanks to Nickelodeon! Smurfette, Papa Smurf, Gargamel, and more will all show up in this 9 episode collection on DVD! The episodes are:

  • Smurf-Fu / Diaper Daddy
  • Who nose? / Clumsy not Clumsy 
  • Unsmurfable Smile / Mind the cat
  • Where’s Papa Smurf? / Who’s Heftier? 
  • Smurfs in disguise / Joke’s on you
  • The Scariest Smurf / DRIIINNGGGGG!
  • My Smurf the Hero / Alien Smurf
  • Smurf your seat belts! / Leaf it alone
  • Bringing up Smurfy / The Makeover

I got the opportunity to review the DVD and here is what I thought!

I grew up with the classic smurfs and their “la la la la” singing, the classic Gargamel and his need to suck the magic from the Smurfs, and the classic Azrael and his need to eat the Smurfs. I remember watching the cartoon every time it was on the TV and I remember identifying with Clumsy because of my crazy ability to simply trip over air, fall up the stairs, and break anything within a 10 ft radius….In fact, I still identify with Clumsy. So when I was asked to review a new series featuring The Smurfs, how could I refuse?

First impressions of the all new Smurfs series is we are not in the classic world anymore. The art is very different. We have gone from 2D images to 3d digital rendering where small details like different fabrics will show different textures and fibers. The artists putting the new series together spend a lot of time showcasing the difference between leather and other fabrics. Check out the image below. The Smurfs have a shiny blue skin, their dresses are dull to simulate almost a felt like fabric, and the leather vests look, well, leathery. Even the background image features different textures for the leaves, stones, and metal objects. I am very impressed.

In the new series we still get Smurfs that are named after their main attribute. We still have Grumpy Smurf, Clumsy Smurf, Jokey Smurf, Hefty Smurf, and more. Many of these characters come from the classic show but have been reimagined for the next generation of Smurf Fans. Hefty is still strong, Clumsy is still Clumsy, and Brainy is still….annoying. The gang is all there and is lead by the beloved Papa Smurf. However, thereare new additions to our Smurf family, there are now female Smurfs other than Smurfette!

The female Smurfs come from the movie Smurfs: The Lost Village. “The Smurfs” series continues the story as the two clans come together to create all new adventures and chaos. It is fun to watch them collaborate and learn. For example in Smurf your Seat Belts! Stormy, a female Smurf, and Handy work to create a flying device to keep flying Azrael at bay. At first they compete to see who is better but end up working together in the end, proving that teamwork is amazing. I am loving the fun these new Smurfs provide and the dynamic between the two clans is interesting to watch.

The Smurfs Season 1 Volume 1 features the first 9 episodes from the ne series. It contains much of what we have come to love from The Smurfs, but also something new for an all new generation to fall in love with the little blue characters. I love the art, the characters, and even, the themes, such as teamwork, that flow through each episode as mayhem ensues. I give this collection five stars and look forward to more Smurfy adventures!

PAW Patrol Rescue Knights Review and Castle Cupcake Recipe

June 7, 2022, PAW Patrol: Rescue Knights is coming to DVD! That means fans will be able to take and all new adventure with their favorite pups in 6 fantastic episodes inspired by dragons, knights, and kingdoms. Each rescue is jam packed with our favorite pups, new vehicles, and soaring adventures. Fans can buy the DVD from Amazon.com (affiliate link) and take the adventures home.

I got the chance to review this marvoulous episode collection and here are my thoughts.

I will admit, anything PAW Patrol is big in my house. I love all the teamwork lessons, the problem solving skills, and the empathy that each episode showcases and teaches their audience. It has enough entertainment to keep the little minds occupied and it has a great balance in morals.

PAW Patrol: Rescue Knights continues the the entertainment and morals in their episode collection. While The adventures take place in a fantasy world of dragons, knights, and kingdoms, their true core never changes.: helping others.

The episodes are:

  • Quest for the Dragon’s Tooth
  • Pups Save a Dozing Dragon
  • Pups Save a Tournament
  • Pups Save the Baby Dragons
  • Rescue Knights Break the Ice
  • Pups Save the Bone in the Stone

My favorite episode is when the Pups have to save baby dragons from Claw in Pups Save the Baby Dragons. When Claw steals some baby dragons, the pups must really follow their motto, “No rescue is too big, no pup knight is too small!” because the baby dragons are bigger than the pups. This means is will take a team to rescue the babies and return them to their mommy. Let me just say, when babies are involved, nothing goes as planned.

Pups Save the Baby Dragons is my favorite episode because the dragons are so cute and I love the teamwork to get the babies back to their momma. Using their new machines, their brains, and, of course, the baby dragons, they work hard to rescue and return the adorable flying fire breathing bundles of joy. If you have never seen a pup ride a dragon, get ready for that to be crossed off your bucket list.

With Baby Dragons, high flying adventures, epic rescues and a fantasy like theme, I truly love this episode collection! PAW Patrol: Rescue Knights continues the themes we have come to love such as teamwork and problem solving in a brand new way. wrapped up with dragons, knighthood, and rescues. I give it five stars!

In anticipation of PAW Patrol: Rescue Knights coming to DVD, Nickelodeon has given all their fans a great way to celebrate the release with a fun DIY Rescue Knights Castle Cupcake recipe. With just a few ingredients, fans can be creating their own kingdom in no time.

Ingredients needed:
