I caught this as a part of CBS' Saturday morning line-up while staying with a client where I am a staff member. I watched this for about a year and it,along with "Kenny the Shark",were two of my favorite shows on the slate. A simple show about five friends who gather at any of their backyards(hence the title)to embark on an adventure of their imaginations(Pirate ship on the high seas,space exploration,jungle safari,deep sea diving come to mind),it was replete with simple but curious and bright dialog and musical numbers that was astutely child-like and yet fun.
A neat little show that could probably appeal to kids over the age of five(unlike,say,the repetitively educational "Dora the Explorer"),I'm not exactly sure why CBS returned this to exclusive property of Noggin a bout a year or so ago,but I suppose they have their reasons. Worth a catch wherever you can find it,though you might feel better watching it with kids or,at the very least,the kid-like.
