Review:
The little computer-animated submarine Olly is back for more adventures with his friends: submarine Beth, deep-sea rover Skid, Uma the subaquatic robot, Diver Doug, and Ranger the sea horse to name a few. As with the previous Dive Olly Dive DVD (a Fall 2009 Parents' Choice Approved selection), the stories are set in a bright and colorful sea. They teach important life lessons to young viewers while imparting good ecological messages that aren't too didactic. In "I Thought I Saw a Sea Serpent," Olly learns that being responsible means telling the truth. In "Beth's Backfire," Beth saves a baby seal by being calm and creative. In "The Big Swap," Uma and Olly discover that though their jobs seem boring, they have their assignments because they are good at them. In "Cucumber Confusion," Olly and Skid decide a little cheating will lead to more play time (which of course it does not).
