DescriptionThree animated adventures from the educational children's series designed to teach young viewers art and music appreciation by integrating famous or culturally significant art works and classical music into the scenery, plot, and soundtrack of each episode. In 'The Birthday Machine', June, Leo, Quincy, Annie, and Rocket can't wait to construct a birthday machine, but their quest for parts takes them deep within Michelangelo Buonarroti's painting 'The Laurentian Library' and then on a gondola ride through the canals of Venice where they chase and order specific melodic fragments from Johann Sebastian Bach's 'Brandenberg Concerto Number 5'. In 'Go West Young Train', the group journeys to the American Wild West where they experience the art of Navajo basketry and the music of Georges Bizet while helping Little Red Train recover a bag of party supplies stolen by Big Jet. Finally, in 'The Birthday Balloons', the group journeys around the globe from Seattle, Washington to the tropical rainforest of Henri Rousseau's 'The Merry Jesters' and the ice floes of Antarctica.
