This was one of the showtapes done during the CyberStar Era that incorporates typical show animation with video monitors. Most everyone will recognize the music in these shows from elementary school music classes, Disney cartoons, and other traditional children's songs passed down through the generations. Most of the songs were jazzed up from their traditional arrangements.
- A little girl is used in this show as the offstage announcer - Aaron Fechter's daughter, Alyssa Dawn, sings and interacts with the band in both segments of the show. She mentions only being 4 years old at the beginning of this show, and 4 years earlier the song "Oh Dawn" was included on the Country II
showtape (the song was written for her as a baby).

The first part of this show is fun and upbeat with jazzy arrangements of songs such as "Row Your Boat” and "Little Miss Muffet". At times it gets so funky you forget you are listening to tunes written for kindergarteners. Fatz's humorous rendition of "This Old Man" in which he tells the tale of a frog who goes to get a loan at the bank is Rock-afire wittiness at its best. This show demonstrates how Mitzi (Shalisa) has matured as a vocalist. This is one of the few showtapes where she does some vocal improvisation. Her version of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" is a highlight for Mitzi fans.
Unfortunately, the second segment of the show loses momentum. While it does end on an upbeat note with "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah", and Rolfe and Earl’s segment of the show is quite humorous (During "Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf", Earl gets so carried away making fun of Rolfe that the sound man offstage begins censoring him and bleeping out some words), songs like "Hokey Pokey" and "Three Little Fishies" are just plain boring. Mitzi even gives the audience a little public service announcement about the obesity problem in America before the "Hokey Pokey" to encourage kids to get out and do more physical activity. The offstage announcer also gets a little more than annoying as the show goes on, especially when she takes the lead vocals on "Three Little Fishies".
