Max and Ruby have not been able to get Emma’s attention when I’ve had it on the television, but I have to admit that I’ve gotten sucked into the storyline a few times! It’s a calm, quiet, peaceful show and I think that’s why I’ve found it appealing.
If you’re not familiar, Nickelodeon’s Max & Ruby is a half-hour animated comedy series based on the children’s books by Rosemary Wells. Each episode centers on Max, a determined three-year-old bunny, and his big sister, Ruby, a smart, goal-oriented seven-year-old. The show offers an empowering message for children by showing Max and Ruby playing together and resolving their differences in ways that are respectful and supportive.
Even though we don’t watch it often, I do remember a few of the episodes that are featured on Max & Ruby: Visit With Grandma. Particularly, I remember Max’s Mudpie. It’s a comical episode that shows ruby trying to get her flowers planted and Max keeps swiping her mud to make his own fun project. If you or someone you know is a fan of the show, it makes a great gift. Also a great way to teach sisters and brothers to work together.
Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment, Max & Ruby: A Visit with Grandma will be released on DVD June 15, 2010, for the suggested retail price of $16.99, and features four all-new episodes never released on DVD before!
