Review:Alt-rock duo John Flansburgh and John Linnell, otherwise known as They Might Be Giants, who leaped into children's music with the wacky and wonderful 2002 CD, "No!," proved the crossover was no fluke with this year's DVD release, "Here Come the ABCs." Still just as playful and innovative, served up with the duo's trademark technopop, rock and off-the-wall disharmony, this time the songs are framed around education: solid, if surreal lessons in phonics ("C Is for Conifer," "E Eats Everything"). But listening is only half the fun. These songs are meant to be "seen" as well as heard, in the DVD's inventive, delightful puppetry and animation.
