The Fresh Beat Band – “Hip Hop Hoedown”
The Fresh Beats are having a hoedown today! They’re going to play country music and square dance. Twist really wants to play his mix tables, but they don’t fit with the country music style so he has to figure out what to play!

The Wonder Pets! – “Save the Pony Express”
The Wonder Pets must help a Young Pony in the Old West make her first delivery as part of the famous Pony Express!

Jacob’s Thoughts

Jake is getting older now, and he’s starting to leave behind a few of his old favorites. Diego has been relegated to a back shelf, and the Wonder Pets were left behind a while ago. However, two shows that he still really loves are Bubble Guppies and Team Umizoomi. He really enjoyed those episodes on the Rootin’ Tootin’ Wild West DVD. He also liked the Fresh Beat Band. While I thought that was an odd inclusion, considering the other shows are all from Nick Jr, he was thrilled with it.
Overall, the DVD has a good mix of shows, and any fan of Nick will enjoy it.
