During a game of hide-and-seek, Bobby Bushbaby tumbles into a tree hole, prompting Balzac de Chameleon to tell Bobby and Sunny Honeypossum about the many animals that live in holes. Sunny is shocked that bushbabies often sleep in tree holes. It's up to Uncle Balzac to explain that lots of animals make their homes in holes. Meanwhile, wacky animated Francisco Flamingo flaps in with a Flamingo Fact about fiddler crabs and a song about thirsty animals going "Down to the Water Hole". Plus, this episode features GeoKids bonus segments about raindrops, hippos, and "Cool Cats" - a rhythm-and-blues tribute to the feline family. Each GeoKids puppet character is based on a real animal - Sunny, the Australian honey possum; Bobby, the African bush baby; and Uncle Balzac, a chameleon from Madagascar. Created by Emmy winner Hank Saroyan of Jim Henson's Muppet Babies, GeoKids is certain to entertain and enrich the whole family.

Review:

During a game of hide-and-seek with Sunny the honey possum, Bobby the bush baby falls into a tree hole and wonders "who would sleep in here?" Chameleon Uncle Balzac asserts that sometimes bush babies sleep in holes but cites prairie dogs as more common inhabitants. After a rhyming verse about prairies, Uncle Balzac declares that many animals, such as the burrowing owl and black-footed ferret, use abandoned prairie dog holes as shelter for raising their young. Even creatures as varied as bears, puffins, and white wolves sleep in holes. Sunny, Bobby, and Uncle Balzac are, by the way, realistic puppet figures created by Emmy winner Hank Saroyan of Muppet Babies fame.

Intermixed with beautifully photographed segments of hole-dwelling creatures is a recurring drama called "Meerkat Masterpiece Theatre," which follows meerkats as they dig for food and keep watch against the appearance of Phil the eagle and Jake the jackal. Traditional GeoKids features such as "Animal Doo-Wop," "Alphabet Rock," "Fascinating Flamingo Facts," and "Who's That, Living in the Water?" also figure prominently in the video. The rhythm & blues segment "Cool Cats" is especially catchy and contains simply breathtaking photographs of wild and domestic cats. Once again, the GeoKids series manages to capture the attention of even the most rambunctious preschooler. --Tami Horiuchi
