Synopsis

Gobbles can’t wait for the most magical day of the year to arrive! Thanksgiving! So Gobbles invites all his best friends together for a turkey-tastic Thanksgiving sing-and-dance party in Turkey Town.

Dove Review

This playful animated video will get pre-K children on their feet, dancing and singing along with characters like Bucky Beaver, Penny Penguin, Sandy Squirrel and many more. Catchy, upbeat tunes encourage little ones to celebrate the holidays, especially Thanksgiving. Dance-alongs to favorite tunes like “Wheels on the Bus,” “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes,” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” are a great opportunity to exercise and to learn classic pre-K tunes. Sandy the Thanksgiving Squirrel teaches the alphabet as she invites kids to sing the ABC song while Berty the Bee provides a dancing spelling lesson.

Turkey Town incorporates both Thanksgiving and Christmas dances into the video. There’s even a surprise dancing Star Wars character. Not all songs are well known, and some don’t make sense, but most are familiar, and each features a dancing animal or other character introduced by Mr. Turkey throughout. The backgrounds and settings are repeated some, and can be mundane but very small children will be focused more on dancing. The Dove Foundation awards this video the All Ages Seal.

What to talk about

This is a low-budget production but will get little children dancing and singing. Some songs feature different lyrics than the classics.

The Dove Take

Turkey Town is a fun-loving sing-and-dance video hopping with inviting animal characters. This video will entertain small children in an interactive way.
