I enjoyed reading Richard Scarry books when I was little, and thanks to the One2One Network, I discovered how Scarry’s beloved characters can now be seen on Busytown Mysteries on Cookie Jar TV, CBS’ Saturday morning block of children’s shows!
Watch each week as Huckle Cat, Lowly Worm and all the busy friends from Busytown use their detective skills to solve the many fun mysteries in their neighborhood.
I was fortunate to receive a DVD of two Busytown Mystery shows: The Falling Fruit Mystery and The Dragon Hunters.
In The Falling Fruit Mystery, the Busytown friends had to figure out how cherries had fallen off a tree. Little Music Man would keep saying “Cherry!” whenever he’d see the cherries or cherry trees, and in the end, it was quite interesting to find out why the cherries were on the ground!
The Dragon Hunters was also a fun episode, as we watched the Busytown friends try to determine what the “dragon” really was after they read how dragons are imaginary.
Smiley Boy also enjoyed the shows, and we all liked the theme song—“Who, what, why, how. Who, what, when, where, why, how…”—it’s quite catchy!
Not only do the Busytown characters come to life on screen, they come to life on their very own website too!
At the Busytown Mysteries website, kids can pick an animal, choose a silly car, and travel throughout Busytown playing games! They can make collages, find matching butterflies, get rewards, and so much more!
Seeing the Richard Scarry characters come to life on screen and on the internet is pretty neat! These classic characters were a part of my childhood and now they’re a part of my boys’ too!
You can watch Busytown Mysteries air on CBS Saturday Mornings. To check your local TV Schedule for Busytown Mysteries, click here.
