Recently, we had TAZ-MANIA: TAZ ON THE LOOSE SEASON 1 PART 1 come to our house for review. This is a character which the boys had limited exposure to in the past, but I suspected it would be loved.
About TAZ-MANIA: TAZ ON THE LOOSE SEASON 1 PART 1
Clear the way! Here comes Taz, a whirlwind of terror and destruction. He’s a teenage Tasmanian Devil with a voracious appetite who devours nearly everything in his path, even his sister Molly’s beloved New Chips off the Block action figures! Sibling rivalry is tough, especially when you have a little sister who is the typical teenage girl who regularly gets on your nerves. Then there’s little brother Jake, who looks up to Taz and idolizes his big brother. Mom, Jean, is a dedicated mother who runs a shipshape household and loves her kids. Hugh is Taz’s easy-going dad, who enjoys playing golf. One of Taz’ best friends is his loyal pet, Dog the Turtle, a turtle who behaves just like a dog and even enjoys playing fetch! Together, the close-knit family of Tasmanian Devils, live on the lush, exotic island of Tazmania, where the sky is always a vibrant shade of yellow and adventures abound. Joining them is a lively cast of characters including, Constance Koala, Daniel and Timothy Platypus, Digeri Dingo, Wendal T. Wolf, Mr. Thickley and many others.
In Taz-Mania: Taz On The Loose Season 1 Part 1, Taz finds himself in an assortment of entertaining escapades. Viewers learn the story of how Taz first met his loyal and beloved pet, Dog the Turtle. Taz is persuaded by the devious Digeri Dingo to look for a sunken treasure, even though Taz hates the water! When Jean and Hugh go visit grandmother who is feeling under the weather, Taz is left home alone without parental supervision with his little brother and sister. These and several other adventures are featured on the DVD.

Our Thoughts on TAZ-MANIA: TAZ ON THE LOOSE SEASON 1 PART 1
My boys ages 12 and down really enjoy this DVD set. I can’t say that I blame them as Taz was always a favorite for me, too. He’s also a favorite for one of my aunts. D adores her, so he might have been a bit prejudiced to enjoy the show knowing she likes Taz. Regardless of what got them started watching, you know it’s a hit when the DVD set has to be taken away for frequent viewing!
Now I will say that the younger crowd isn’t as likely to enjoy this title. D (who’s 3) wasn’t as enamored with it as the 9 and 12 year old were. But, I still found him glancing at different episodes here and there.
