The Littlest Angel on DVD 11-15

The Littlest Angel on DVD 11-15

I love it when I find a great movie that all my kids can enjoy together. The Littlest Angel is that kind of movie! It is a sweet story about a boy that goes to heaven before his time. My kids really loved this movie and have watched it a few times since we got it. My husband and I also enjoyed watching it with the kids. You can read more about it below and check out a clip! It was available on DVD 11/15.

EVERLY HILLS, CA – Some Angels soar the skies, and some fall a little short. Anchor Bay Entertainment presents the DVD release of the new animated feature film, The Littlest Angel, heading to retail on Tuesday, November 15th. A colorful adaptation of the fifteenth best-selling children’s book of all time, The Littlest Angel takes us on a rousing adventure with a young, and sometimes mischievous, Angel, who must return to earth and earn his wings, a task that doesn’t prove to be easy. Experience the love, laughter and magic of one of the most popular children’s stories of all time. From the classic book by Charles Tazewell, comes this lively CGI animated version filled with both humor and heart.

The Littlest Angel tells the story of a young boy who arrives in heaven before his time. Home-sick and lonely, he will travel back to earth, with his friendly pup Halo, to retrieve a most selfless and precious gift for The Baby Jesus. First released in book form in 1946, The Littlest Angel became popular for its ornate words and phrases paired with beautifully muted oil paintings. Tazewell’s book was adapted into a TV musical in 1969 starring Johnny Whitaker, and theatrical versions continue to be done by schools and church groups today. The author would follow-up with another childhood favorite, “The Littlest Snowman,” that would be read annually on the “Captain Kangaroo” show.

“This is a story that has made so many people happy over the years,” says Lance Thompson, one of the producers of the film. “We’ve added some new elements to this production, but this is still The Littlest Angel everyone remembers from their childhood, and one that parents will enjoy introducing to their kids. I think Tazewell would enjoy knowing his work lives on.”

It’s a modern twist on the timeless tale of an Angel that discovers the greatest gifts in life are faith, friendship and doing the right thing. This new version of The Littlest Angel features wonderful animation and great vocal talent, including Ron Perlman (“Beauty and The Beast,” Tangled), and is sure to become a holiday favorite, much like the book it’s based on. The Littlest Angel is a motion picture that will put a smile on everyone’s face, and what better gift is there than that.

CatDog: Season One -Part One 10-18

CatDog: Season One -Part One 10-18

I think it was a few years ago that my oldest daughter watched CatDog. She loved it but has since grown out of it. I was so excited when I heard that they would be releasing Season One on DVD. I could remember how much they loved it when it originally aired. This is one of the shows for me that I can find a laugh at also. The show follows the crazy antics of CatDog, a pair of conjoined twins. One cat and one dog with different personalities but at the same time best friends. The cat is so uptight that he needs Brain Stress Balls to squeeze on just so he can relax while the dog is much more laid back and enjoys chasing garbage trucks. My daughter was so excited to watch this again. This DVD was released on 10/18. You can read more about it below and take a peak at a video!

The First 10 Episodes From The First Season Debuts On DVD October 18, 2011 from Shout! Factory

Running in circles has never been funnier or more exasperating unless you’re CatDog. Nickelodeon’s fraternal twins arrive kicking and screaming on DVD, October 18, 2011 from Shout! Factory. Featuring the first 10 episodes from the show’s premiere season, CatDog: Season 1 – Part 1 follows the adventures of the feline-canine brothers Cat and Dog, conjoinedtwins, who adore and irritate each other like fleas. Long anticipated by fans, CatDog: Season One – Part One has not been available in stores until now. A must have for fans of Nickelodeon, cartoon fanatics and DVD collectors, the two-disc DVD set has a suggested retail price of $19.93.

A fan favorite, CatDog: Season One – Part One, is a tale of opposites attached starring CatDog, the most unlikely brother duo ever seen. The conjoined brothers love each other yet they are so different, they can’t help but annoy themselves silly with their contrarian activities. Prim and proper, Cat is the very definition of culture, while Dog is the ultimate tail-wagging, sofa-jumping, car-chasing roughneck. But despite their very different personalities, CatDog are the best of friends, sticking to one another — literally — through thick and thin, even when it comes to facing off against their devious neighbor Winslow and the rough ’n’ tough gang of Greaser Dogs!

Created by Peter Hannan, CatDog premiered on Nickelodeon in1998 and ran for four seasons until 2001. Reruns aired onNicktoons from 2002 to 2011.

Weight Watchers by Conair Scale Giveaway

Weight Watchers by Conair Scale Giveaway

I have been slowly trying to get into a weight loss routine at home. Eating better, more exercise. I even went out and bought a new treadmill. I love it and am totally noticing a difference. But with my 5 year old weight scale it just not does provide me with some of the features I would like to have. Being able to measure weight, body fat, body water, bone mass, and BMI all on one scale would be fabulous. The new Weight Watchers by Conair Glass Body Analysis Scale does that and more. I had no idea on any of these numbers with my old scale and now that I have this one I feel more in power of my weight loss goals.

I totally love that it keeps memory for up to four people. It has a really modern design, making it not only functional but really pretty as well. It has a blue backlight on the 1.9” LCD screen and has impact-resistant tempered safety glass platform with stainless steel. My kids and husband also love using it and are more aware what all the numbers mean. I think it is a great tool for losing weight. I actually look forward to stepping on the scale and celebrating my successes.  This scale would be great for anyone trying to lose weight or even just maintaining your weight. You can see the entire selection on their website.

Dora the Explorer, created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh Valdes and Eric Weiner, is a play-along, animated adventure series starring Dora (Caitlin Sanchez). Dora is a seven-year-old Latina heroine whose adventures take place in an imaginative, tropical world filled with jungles, beaches and rainforests. She explores her world just as preschoolers do everyday, and the show is designed to actively engage its audience in an interactive quest using a variety of learning techniques.

In every episode, Dora and Boots (Regan Mizrahi) invite the audience to participate in an exciting adventure, where each step of their journey consists of a problem or puzzle that Dora and the audience must think their way through in order to solve the next problem. Dora is proudly bilingual and uses her knowledge of English and Spanish to communicate with her friends, overcome obstacles and reach her goals. In each episode, Dora teaches Spanish words or phrases to the viewers and then asks them to use it to solve a problem and forge ahead. Ultimately, Dora and her best friend, Boots, triumph, and the story always ends with a “We Did It!” anthem.

I was so excited to learn that the The Fox and the Hound & The Fox and the Hound 2 were going to be released on DVD! The first one originally came out when I was very little but I do remember loving it then. I knew my three kids would love Tod, Copper and the other charecters just as I did. They are the two best friends in the movie. We were able to fit both movies in on our last movie night and I was right my kids loved it! They were all glued to the TV and then could not wait for the 2nd one. I loved seeing the amazing picture quality of the DVDS and am so happy they enjoyed them.

The Fox and the Hound 30th Anniversary Synopsis


When Tod, an orphaned fox cub meets Copper, a coonhound puppy, they make a pledge to be lifelong friends, not realizing that Copper is being groomed to hunt wild animals, including foxes. Copper spends the winter with his owner, Slade, and an older dog, Chief, tracking animals at a remote cabin. When they return, a lonely Tod eagerly greets his old playmate but is stunned when a reluctant Copper joins Slade and Chief to chase Tod through the forest. During the pursuit, Tod escapes but Chief is seriously injured. Seeking revenge, Copper hunts down Tod only to find himself confronting an even bigger enemy, which he and Tod must face together.


The Fox and the Hound 2 Synopsis


In The Fox and the Hound 2, music takes centerstage as Tod contemplates joining up with “The Singin’ Strays,” a group of harmonizing dogs appearing at the local county fair but dreaming of hitting the big time at the Grand OleOpry. While Tod does his best to fit in with his new friends, Copper finds himself relegated to “roadie,” a position he begins to resent. With the encouragement of Dixie, the “diva” of “The Singin” Strays,” Copper manages to sabotage an important audition. The next day, their differences forgotten, Copper and Tod team up and, using Copper’s superior tracking skills, they locate the Grand Ole Opry talent scout who signs “The Singin’ Strays” (minus Tod, who chooses his friendship with Copper over fame) on the spot.

{HAVE A LAUGH: Volumes 3 & 4 on DVD}

What kid doesn’t like watching cartoons? My kids sure do! One thing I have totally loved about them is their ability to enjoy some of the older classic cartoons. It seems like Mickey Mouse and his pals have been around forever and I totally remember enjoying them when I was a kid. Recently Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment released HAVE A LAUGH: Volumes 3 & 4 on DVD! Classic shorts featuring Mickey, Donald, Goofy & Pluto. When my kids watched them and all I could hear was laughing, lots of laughing. My 3 year old especially loved these DVD’s. Mickey has been his favorite for a long time.

After seeing how much my kids enjoyed these I am going to have to look into getting Vol 1 & 2. I really enjoyed that the whole family could laugh and enjoy these together without boring mom and dad. We laughed just as much as the kids did! What a hit! Each DVD is fully restored and re-mastered! Both volumes also include brand new “Re-MICKS” features, which are comprised of modern musical hits under classic cartoon clips! Below is clip from each volume we have! Grab the kids and watch a few clips. These DVDs will be available for 19.99.



Volume 3 Synopsis:

Set sail for the high seas of hilarity when Mickey, Goofy and Donald go a-whaling and wind up going overboard – literally! Bark with laughter as Pluto is dogged by a pesky gopher who’s making mincemeat of Minnie’s garden. Then, have a ball with Goofy as he hits the links and – BLAM! – his “relaxing” game of golf goes outrageously awry.

Fully restored and remastered, these amazing cartoons also feature a new “Re- MICKS” – a mash-up music video of crazy cartoon clips remixed to the hit song, “I Gotta Feeling” from the Black Eyed Peas. It’s a novel approach to uproarious classic comedy that’ll make you laugh out loud. Bursting at the seams with surprises, Have a Laugh – Volume 3 will tickle your funny bone till it hurts!

Volume 4 Synopsis:

Have an outrageously g’day with Mickey and Pluto when their adventure Down Under goes way over the top, thanks to a wayward boomerang and a humongous ostrich. Kick up your heels with Donald as his fireside hula dance “heats up” hilariously. Then, ride a tide of laughs with Goofy as he tries to catch a wave and – BLAM! – gets clobbered by his surfboard.
