Trivia

There were two original pilots made. There was a live action pilot originally titled " Me and My Friends" made in 1998 and there was one made in 2002 that contained the current title and the computer animation. While Austin was never in one of them, there were originally going to be lemurs that would appear as side characters in the live action pilot. Nothing of these pilots have surfaced except a couple of pictures and and couple of seconds worth of footage. See more »

User Reviews

Great show for preschoolers.
18 January 2005 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

My daughter (3 years old) absolutely loves this show. It immediately replaced the old standbys (-dora, blues clues ex) as her favorite show. She loves to get up and try to copy the kids dancing during the songs. It really gets her up and moving. After watching the 'pirate treasure' episode she spent a week pretending she was a pirate! This show knows how to get a child's imagination working!

This is a fun, educational, creative and very entertaining show. It really knows how to captivate an audience.

The show is entertaining for me too. The songs are great, real musical quality. As a parent, I appreciate a show like this. One that my daughter can enjoy and doesn't drive me crazy!
