I wanted something to write something more kid friendly to remind everyone that Halloween isn’t all about gore. So here is a technicality for you. It’s time to laugh and play as I review The Busy World of Richard Scarry. I remember as a child reading the books and wondering which of the animals was Richard. Good times.
For the sake of brevity let’s just call it Busy World for the rest of the blog. Fair? Okay. My reasoning for this is explained in the description of the link. But for those who didn’t read, in spite of the spelling, Mr. Scarry’s last name is pronounced Scary. That’s how it fits.
I hope no one is disappointed in my choice of review. I only wanted to keep the spirits soaring while kids are exploring the internet on Halloween. But to the review itself.
The story stars Huckle Cat with his family. Along with his best friend who lives with them, Lowly Worm. Who is also our narrator. The story contains his and the city of Busy Town’s many misadventures as they get through life.
Like the time Mr. Frumple the pig accidentally mistakes his pickle car for a bulldozer, a taxi, an airplane, and a police car! Or when Huckle is scared to have his tonsils taken out. In between the run time the narrator Lowly tells us stories of adventure, like mountain climbers or people stranded on an island.
It’s a lovely book and cartoon series. I still watch it today as an adult. And I’d be lying if I told you I ever threw that book away, despite it being colored in. Or Colour if you’re English I believe. You can listen to the aswesome theme song Here.. Well that’s about all the time I have for now.
I give Busy World 5 Bitten apples out of 5. See ya later! What should I review next?
