.... the worst thing in all human history.
NEW YORK, April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire/ --
There's a new kind of Beatlemania craze hitting the preschool airwaves as The Wonder Pets! travel to Liverpool, England, to save their favorite rock band on "Save the Beetles!", a new primetime musical adventure premiering Monday, April 21, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The Wonder Pets! tribute to the Fab Four features Lenie Colacino and Tom Teeley of Broadway's Beatlemania as guest voices for the famous animated bug band The Beetles. The new mini-operetta is composed by Larry Hochman (orchestration for Monty Python's Spamalot), who also serves as lead composer on the series.
For those of you without children, the Wonder Pets are an insufferably adorable but ultimately insulin-shock producing children's program. It makes Dora the Explorer look like Almodovar. It makes Barney look like Shoah. It makes Boobah look like last night's debate.... of wait, Boobah's actually smarter than the questions asked there.
I will have to watch this, of course. And then I will weep.
A sample of what to expect (alas, wholly representative):
