Trivia

There were two original pilots made. There was a live action pilot originally titled " Me and My Friends" made in 1998 and there was one made in 2002 that contained the current title and the computer animation. While Austin was never in one of them, there were originally going to be lemurs that would appear as side characters in the live action pilot. Nothing of these pilots have surfaced except a couple of pictures and and couple of seconds worth of footage. See more »

Great show
17 May 2005 | by smudgecat73See all my reviews

This is a great show for preschoolers and young children. My daughter (4) loves it. She gets up and dances along with the characters every day! There is music, imagination and action in every episode. The animation is pretty neat; very colorful and the adventures the characters have are just like any that my daughter (or I at her age) would have. There is one in a jungle and another on a pirate ship. I love how the characters are all different but share similar characteristics. It shows children how other children can be very different but you are all the same inside. The dancing is fun too. The characters show different dance moves and how to build on them until you are doing a disco move or a shag move, etc. All around a very good show!
