Birthday break and music
- We get a new version of birthday star called "Birthday Star Extravaganza
" that came out in December of 2007 (it came with the Holiday Show
dvds). The Studio C puppets are in this version of the new Birthday Show and all versions have the puppets in them. The cast members can either choose between the 2 or 5 minute countdowns for the Birthday Show. At the very end of the Live Show there is a photo session so that the kids can take pictures with Chuck E. The video footage is reused footage from "Hold my Hand" which is from the September 2006 Show
. The only difference is that Department 18 added new music for the countdown.
January 2008 Show logo
- This Show logo first starts out with a robot (sort of like the Iron Giant) picking up the C and then breaking off the "E" from the billboard then breaking off the little "C" and then the robot places the C, then the letter E, and then the letter C next to each other and after the tv comes on (it says tv on the screen) and when the logo is all done it says "CECTV". The
New "CECTV" Show logo is a pretty sweet logo!
-3.5 out of 5 Tokens-
I liked this show. The songs were great and the logo for the show was sweet. The intermissions could have been better though. All the songs are
good covers, (although "ABC Song" is an original). I think this show was a winner. The only bad thing in this show was the intermissions being to short and to boring. Other than that, great going Department 18!!
