Storyline

Johnny is a musician who moves to a house in the woods in order to work on his music. Once he arrives, however, he discovers that this is not just any house! His solitude is subsequently disturbed by two magical creatures called Sprites. The Sprites, Ginger and Basil, then learn life lessons from Johnny (in the form of a musical number). Occasionally, Johnny's cranky neighbor, Mrs. Moldystew, peeks across the fence to chastise him for being noisy! Written by Cabaline16

so cute and funny
1 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

oh. my. gosh. I couldn't believe what I was seeing on the Playhouse Disney when I turned my TV on one morning. I was like wow, that guy looks really familiar... and then he started singing and I knew it was John Tartaglia. I am a huge Broadway fan and know of John because he starred as Rod and Princton in Avenue Q. It was just so surreal seeing someone who really made it big in one of Broadway's most risqué shows now having a short on the Disney channel. Not that anything is wrong with that - he does a great job and if I were still in the Playhouse Disney average age range (pre-school) I would be so entertained by this show. Oh, who am I kidding, I actually went to the playhouse Disney site and watched the clips they had on there, and being a 19 year old I still laughed at them! This is a great show for kids and John does a job keeping kids entertained and teaches them everyday lessons, like sharing and patience.
