Chuck E Goes Ballooning
Chuck E's Rockin Rhymes is another Just For Kids Show
(April 00) but with shorter skits and not so boring "kiddie" songs. The Just For Kids Show had problems because it had four to six songs per skit, and in Rockin Rhymes there are only one song per skit (similar to Chuck E's Variety Show
Jan 00). Each song has a lesson to give (a.k.a. a moral about life): "Humpty Dumpty" shows that everybody will hatch out of their eggs and 'fly away' (leave home and be on their own). "The Three Little Investors" shows how to be smart with money... or else the 'Big Bad Taxman' will getcha! "Jack & Jill" is about... well... watch your step and beware of banana peels! There are also songs without hidden themes...like "Sharing", "Think Happy", and "Be My Friend" (the titles explain themselves) All the songs are actual originals, and are very catchy, if not weird. Definitely not bad for nursery rhymes!
Studio C (Part 1)
- There is no curtain diversity for Studio C.
Studio C (Part 2)
- Munch's background color is now orange. Previously, his screen was an amber color in the September 2000
and January 2001
Shows (in Summertime 2000
it was also orange). The diagonal stripe design is the same, just Munch's color is different.
- There is no curtain diversity for any of the Existing Stages.
- It's hard to say which characters have solos in this show, because all the characters have major roles in almost every song. Jasper sings "Sharing" and Munch leads "Think Happy". Helen has a major role in many of the songs, but I guess you can consider "Humpty Dumpty" as her main song.
- All the songs in this show are brand new Department 18 originals. There are no parodies or covers. The song line-up includes four rockin' rhymes, and four songs about life (sharing, thinking happy thoughts, and friendship).
- In the original recording for "Humpty Dumpty", there was a line in the middle of the song that goes "Will the real Humpty Dumpty please climb up? Please climb up? Please climb up?" This was a parody of Eminem's "Real Slim Shady"! Unfortunately it was cut out.
- "Party Place" is a remake of the 1994 classic CEC song with the current voice actors.
The Three Little Investors
- In "The Three Little Investors", Pasqually spends all his money on tapes. Take a closer look at those tapes: They are real showtapes! The one in front is "Chuck E's Holiday Party".
Little Red Riding Hood
- Betty (from Baking With Betty fame) appears and sings in
"Little Red Riding Hood". The Fabulous World Adventure
(Aug 99) was the last show to feature a supporting character singing in a song. It was Mike Manly (from Super Jasper) singing "Boat of Love".
Jack & Jill
- Mike Manly, Betty, and Wick Letterback all make cameo appearances in "Jack & Jill".
- This new episode of Super Jasper has the canine wonder locked in a cage with a plate full of delicious food. He then has to resist the food for 60 seconds.
Chuck E Goes Ballooning
- This original music intermission features footage of Chuck E and Helen riding in hot air balloons.
Chuck E Puppet
- All the rockin' rhymes uses nothing but puppetry for the video footage. And making it's debute is a brand new Chuck E puppet, which appeared in "Little Red Riding Hood" and "Three Little Investors".
CEC TV IDs
- CEC TV IDs are the short animated bumpers usually found at the beginning and/or end of each intermission. A brand new computer-animated CEC TV ID debutes in this show - where the 'TV' letters get popcorn and bring it back to a couch where the 'CEC' is sitting watching television. This appears after every other intermission in this show.
- The Birthday Break video is the Chuck E's Rockin' Rhymes show logo.
Chuck E's Rockin' Rhymes Logo
- The show logo has all the different nursery rhyme characters (Jack & Jill, Little Red Riding Hood, & Humpty Dumpty) interacting with a record, which eventually falls onto a DJ record player which Chuck E starts scratching.
-3.5 out of 5 Tokens-
When I first saw this show, I thought it was too kiddie for me. But after watching it a couples times, I realized that the music is actually really cool and fun! I absolutely love "Humpty Dumpty" and "Red Riding Hood", and the Eddie Coker and VeggieTales intermissions are also great! I was glad to hear "Party Place" in this show, b/c it is a cool classic CEC song, and it introduces the Fab Five to the audience. I also like the use of the puppets in the actual video, including the new Chuck puppet. In all, this is probably the best kid show ever made by CEC, and can be enjoyed by kids of all ages!!!!!! I really enjoyed it!
