Hey gang, Valkor here. And I'm back, fully refreshed after my CES 2013 trip in Las Vegas. Feels good, bro. But you know the streets of Vegas are filled with many dark corners you'd never wanna walk into unexpectedly. However should you happen to find yourself in such a predicament, I hope you have the training of a sponge who just so happens to live in a pineapple under the sea. And what with all the craziness that goes on down there you know you have to keep those defenses up. Thanks to the folks at Paramount Home and Nickelodeon you can do just that with SpongeBob SquarePants "Extreme Kah-Rah-Tay" DVD.
Extreme Kah-Rah-Tay is the latest themed DVD in the SpongeBob library that cherry picks a total of seven episodes on a single disc, based on the offense and defense of fighting and action – but in a fun format of course. The disc features all of your favorite characters from the show including Patrick Star, Squidward, Mr. Krab, Plankton, Sandy Squirrel, and Mrs. Puff. Highlights include:
Squid Defense – Fearing the safety of himself and his groceries, Squidward enlists the aid of SpongeBob and Sandy to teach him the art of Karate.
Squirrel Record – It's Sandy's goal to break every record in the record holding book – no matter how dangerous!
Extreme Spots (Valkor Favorite) – SpongeBob and Patrick are taught the ways of Extreme Sports by the group known as the Drasticals, who puts an "extreme" twist on some of their favorite "non-violent" games. Extreme bubble blowing anyone?
Demolition Doofus – After losing her "puff" in an accident with SpongeBob, Mrs. Puff seeks revenge by entering SpongeBob in a demolition derby.
The single disc entry doesn't offer up any additional extra features. So is this disc a worthy adversary in the battle to win TOV and fan appreciation? Let's battle it out in the TOV Breakdown!
If you're a fan of the Sponge and you don't already own season sets of the series, then you'll be doing yourself a huge favor picking up Extreme Kah-Rah-Tay. It features all of your character favorites from the show in a theme that's explosive , action-packed and overall it's loads of fun. Image quality is full screen with eye-popping colors that's wrapped around Dolby digital audio. Radical!
Am I being greedy by asking for a few more episodes on the disc? I think PH could have tacked on a bonus episode or three.
Mrs. Puff in a puffless body… yikes!
SpongeBob SquarePants Extreme Kah-Rah-Tay DVD will be available on January 15th and it's a definite pick up – young and old, who are fans of the Bikini Bottom resident and his pals. I highly recommend it to the max, brah! And out of TOV 5 stars, I give Extreme Kah-Rah-Tay DVD 3.5 out of TOV 5 stars.
