The Just For Kids Show has really mixed reviews. Some really enjoyed the more 'kiddie' nature of the show, while others believe that the subject matter was inappropriate for kids OVER five. But the real problem of the show were the long skits that dragged on and on, and the short intermissions made live show planning a bit difficult for the stores with Studio C. The show wasn't that bad, I thought Skits One & Two were really well done. In fact, this is probably the perfect kids show. It is really well themed, the song choices are great (including some of the clever parodies), and most of the songs have a cool beat. Even the intermissions are cool - two of the most popular VeggieTales songs, and two of Eddie Coker's best songs. But despite these things, this show still lacked what makes a perfect CEC show - and that includes a subject matter to include all ages. The other problem is how the skits drag on and on. In fact, you will notice that most shows after the Just For Kids Show get right to the point with the songs. Look at the show following this one, Summertime... it is short and the skits and intermissions are straight to the point. It used to be that the characters would talk before, after, and during the songs which just made the skits longer. One good thing that the Just For Kids Show helped get rid of.

Studio C (Part 1) - There is no curtain diversity in Studio C.

Studio C (Part 2) - The Studio C puppet backgrounds have cloud-like colored shapes in them. Jasper is blue, Pasqually is red, Munch is amber, and Helen is green. Previously, the puppets had backgrounds with paint splattered all over it. Also different, the screen divider is white, not black.

Existing Stages - There is no curtain diversity for any of the Existing Stages.

Character Songs - Every character has a song (or two) in this show! Pasqually sings "Home With The Range", Helen sings "Pen Pal", "Alphabet Song", and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", Jasper sings "Do Your Ears Hang Low" and "Clementine", and Munch sings "More We Get Together", "Oh Susanna", and a big part of "Are You Eating Mr Munch". None of Chuck E's friends sing in "The Muffin Man".

Parodies - There are a lot of fun parody songs in this show - Helen's "Pen Pal" is actually a parody of "My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean". "Are You Eating Mr Munch" is "Are You Sleeping Brother John". "Our Friend Munch" is "This Old Man". "On Top Of A Pizza" is "On Top Of Old Smokey". "Big Rock Candy Mountain" is also a parody (with the same name). And finally, "Home With A Range" is "Home On The Range" (a range is an oven).

The Muffin Man - This show was the first appearance of the Muffin Boys (singing, of course, "The Muffin Man"). What is interesting is that instead of Chuck's pals singing backup, the Muffin Boys actually do the singing.

Betty & Mike Manly - Betty (from Baking With Betty fame) has a guest appearance in "Blackbird". Mike Manly (Super Jasper) appears in "Home With A Range". This show didn't even have original intermissions featuring these characters. At least they got to be in the show.

Larry - This show is the last show having a guest appearance from Larry, the stage manager. Duncan Brennan was the vocals of Larry, and in the previous shows - the Fabulous World Adventure and Chuck E's Variety Show, Larry had very big roles. In this show, you just see a 'File Photo' of him as he tells Helen she got a letter from her pen pal. Update: Larry finally has a comeback 2 1/2 years later in the Holiday 2002 Show.

Department 18 Cameos (Part 1) - Jeremy Blaido makes a guest appearance as Will Frye in the "Are You Eating Mr. Munch" song. In the video, Munch scares off Will who was catering the food (of course!)

Department 18 Cameos (Part 2) - Robert Gotcher makes a cameo as one of the hillbillies in "She'll Be Coming Around The Mountain" and "Oh Susanna".

CEC TV IDs - CEC TV IDs are the short animated bumpers usually found at the beginning and/or end of each intermission. Brand new in this show is a computer-animated Rocketship CEC TV ID. A kid riding in one of those coin-operated rocket rides blasts off into space, and there is a meteor with CEC TV on it at the end. This appears after every intermission.

Book Your Party Promo - Just like in previous shows, the promo takes place last in the show schedule. This is the first time this promo is featured in Studio C. During the Studio C version Chuck E's curtains open during the promo.

Birthday Break - The Birthday Break music is reused from Chuck E's Variety Show. The video is the Just For Kids Show logo. This is the first show with the 1-Minute & 2-Minute options only.

Just For Kids Show Logo - The show logo is an animation where it shows boxes go down an assembly line & getting transformed into the words "Just For Kids Show".

-2 out of 5 Tokens-

A great show if it wasn't so long. Actually, the skits still clocked in at the usual 10 to 15 minutes, but it seemed to drag so long, especially when we wanted to program live shows at the Studio C store I worked at. I remember constant guest complaints and always missing the chance to program live shows during the very short intermissions. But nonetheless this show is very well themed with perfect kiddie songs...but still unfortunately boring for the older crowd. They missed the mark on making a fun kiddie show with the Just For Kids Show, but a year later they hit it head on with the really fun and cool Chuck E's Rockin Rhymes.
