Critter Quest!

I do not like bugs.  They creep me out, man.  I’m okay with running into a bug on their territory, that’s expected.  But they shouldn’t be crawling into my apartment and running across my pillow when I’m trying to sleep.  It’s fine if they want to make some cobwebs under my bedside table or under the lamps on either side of my sofa.  If a June bug wants to hang on my screen and make noise, that’s fantastic.  But don’t come into my house.  That’s just not cool.  Now there’s a selection of episodes out which look at bugs in more of their environment and it’s ready on DVD right now.

Starting this March 24th, now available on DVD from Smithsonian Networks and Infinity Entertainment Group comes a selection of episodes about the fascinating bugs which creep and crawl all over our world.  Critter Quest! is ready to squirm right out of your television screen and infest your living room with a swarming mass of information about bugs like you never imagined.  Bring home this fascinating and gross look at bugs today!

Hosted by Peter Schriemer, this series takes a kid-specific look at the world of insects and other creatures all around us.  Peter not only digs up all sorts of furry, slimy, and otherwise gross creatures, but he teaches your kids about them in a very informative yet accessible way.  This DVD includes three episodes.  In “Creepy Crawlers Everywhere,” we take a look at click beetles, slugs, tree frogs and so much more and they are everywhere.  In “Season Of Change,” it turns out that animals have a whole lot of ways they prepare for winter and this episode looks at them all.  In “The Wild Side Of D.C.,” the nation’s capital isn’t just overrun by politicians, it’s overrun by wild creatures.

The special features included on this DVD are a 4×3 letterbox format, Dolby Digital Surround Sound and subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired.  Although this isn’t exactly a special feature, this series did win a Silver Parent’s Choice Foundation Award, a 2008 Cine Golden Eagle Award and an American Conservation Film Festival Award in children’s programming.

As much as I don’t like bugs, this show is very interesting.  Your kids will certainly love it and it has got to be some of the most entertaining and informative shows that they could be watching.  The awards mentioned above certainly attest to that as well.  Peter Schriemer does a great job as the host of this show and this show will go a long way towards helping your children, or maybe even you, develop an appreciation of nature and just how magnificent it can be in any form.

Take this Quest to the squirmier side of life.
