Quantcast

For the past six years, Sprout has been a fixture in our home. For a short time, prior to the channel's complete transition into a subsidiary of NBC Universal, I even did some writing for SproutOnline as a member of their "Kindness Crew" (posts lost due to their redesign, but rescued here & here). At the heart of Sprout is a little chicken named Chica, and she's been a big celebrity here in our house - big enough that I had a custom puppet replica made before Chica plush was officially available, and at one point I took Addie to meet Carly and Chica in-person. So what does this have to do with Halloween? This year, the folks at NCircle Entertainment have released THE CHICA SHOW: CHICA'S HALLOWEEN ADVENTURE on DVD, and that new release lands here in my annual 31 Days of Halloween countdown...

FF LogoOne of my favorite places on the planet is Universal Studios Hollywood - despite having only spent a little under three hours there in February of 2014 on what I dubbed my "World's Fastest One-Man Tour of Universal Studios" (though I have visited Universal CityWalk a few times)The pictures were on my socials as I had just enough time to make my way down the hill to TRANSFORMERS: THE RIDE, back up to the famous park tour (thankfully, no lines!) and a walk around to soak in the vibe before hitting the gift shop and heading for LAX (I'd been in town on a project and the folks at NBC Universal were kind enough to spot me a badge for a quick visit). Now there's even more reason to head back (as if my girls' love of the MINIONS and my wife's HARRY POTTER fixation wasn't enough), as FAST & FURIOUS--SUPERCHARGED has been revealed to be opening on Thursday, June 25, 2015. Today, Universal Studios Hollywood sent over a link of some first-look footage of the new attraction, and you can see it below...

The second season of POPPY CAT kicks-off tomorrow on Sprout, and with a seasonally-spiced theme, a preview of "Halloween Woods" lands here on THE ROCK FATHER for Day 24 of my annual 31 Days of Halloween. We checked out an advance of the episode this week (it's super-cute), and you could say that it was sort of inspiring for us, as the girls requested that Daddy draw them a Poppy Cat... so I did, entirely out of crayon...

When the UK-produced POPPY CAT first arrived Stateside via Sprout in 2011, we were just two years into our parenting adventure, and only months away from beginning round two. Now, ahead of it's second season premiere, my girls are two and five - the perfect ages to enjoy the series which celebrates something that I mention often here on THE ROCK FATHER: imaginative play.

So, earlier this weekend, I'm cruising the Brown Bag Films website prior to posting about the YouTube release of their I'M AN ANIMAL series, when I come across this blog entry from March 24. Yes, the legendary Ron Swanson of NBC's PARKS AND RECREATION throwing down some wisdom about DOC McSTUFFINS. While I don't get to see PARKS & REC very often, I do know that Swanson (played by Nick Offerman) is perhaps the finest live-action character currently appearing on television. I also know that my house has been completely overtaken by little Dottie McStuffins, and friends - but I'm totally cool with it.
