Storyline

At the beginning of each episode, Kidd Video and the rest of his basement-band are live-action characters who get forced into a bizarre and animated world by the hands of the evil (and animated) record producer Master Blaster. They become animated themselves, but always find their way back to the "real world" and foil the nefarious plans of Master Blaster, and just in time to play a song before the show ends.

I think this show was nothing but fun.
21 February 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

NOTE: CONTAINS INFO OF TWO SONG TITLE, FOR THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED.

For me, this was one of the seminole kids' shows growing up. It had everything that a kid could want: energy, humour, talented actors, good music, and - best of all - fantasy. I mean, kids being able to travel to another dimension and get all these magical powers and be able to beat evil no matter what the odds were wherever they went ? Yep, it was definitely fun. My favourite songs from this show were " TLC " and " Video Romeo ". I highly recommend this series to anyone else, if only because it - despite criticisms of it - ten times better than even the best of some of the crud passing itself off as children's TV shows nowadays. So hats off to Robby Rist and the others' involved in the show. Clearly, you are smart enough to know quality work when it comes along to get involved in it.
