I am already enamored by Richard Scarry's work, so call me biased. But the Busytown Mysteries series will not disappoint Scarry fans. The characters are adorable and the mysteries they solve so sweet and innocent. My son loves the series in general, and this particular DVD is a favorite. These episodes are ever so slightly "scary" and still age appropriate for the toddler set. The writing and humor is even entertaining for adults, and I enjoy watching with him. Highly recommended!
