As previously reported, "Sid the Science Kid" is coming to DVD this summer. The PBS series will make its DVD debut on August 4, 2009 with two exciting releases. Since our initial report, NCircle Entertainment has graciously sent us the disc details for these two upcoming releases - including the episode listings for each "Sid" title.
In "Sid the Science Kid: Change Happens", Sid wants to know why things have to change. Why does his yellow banana turn brown? Why are his shoes shrinking? What made his ice pop melt and just how does Grandma make a pancake that is not too squishy or burnt? Sid and his friends work together to discover the affects of time, temperature and the environment with the help of some revealing experiments and songs. The single-disc release, with a run time of 115-minutes, will include four episodes from the series - "My Mushy Banana", "My Shrinking Shoes", "My Ice Pops", and "The Perfect Pancake".
"Sid the Science Kid: The Bug Club" explores nature as Sid asks lots of questions about the natural world. When Sid hears dogs barking, he wonders if they're talking to him. He wonders why there aren't any birds living in the birdhouse he built with his Dad. Sid also wants to know what makes dirt so dirty and what makes leaves so special. Sid and his friends learn all about animal communication, habitats, the earth and plants. The single-disc release, which also runs 115-minutes, will include four episode from the series - "Hello Doggie", "Home Tweet Home", "The Dirt On Dirt", and "Don't Forget The Leaves".
Both title will carry a suggested retail price of $14.99 and will hit stores on August 4, 2009. These two titles will be the first, of hopefully many, "Sid the Science Kid" releases; so mark your calendars and be sure to pick up them up. I will keep you updated with information on "Sid the Science Kid" merchandise and DVDs as more information becomes available.
