Paw Patrol is one of Nickelodeon’s best shows on their Nick Jr. lineup, and it’s nice to see it still pulling in viewers of all ages. The show’s latest release to DVD, PAW Patrol: The Great Pirate Rescue, features six episodes of pirate-themed adventures from swashbuckling action to helping others and saving the day as only these puppy pals can do. It’s another collection of fun times for young and older viewers who are looking to set sail and go on patrol with these heroes.
The fun starts off with “Pups and the Pirate Treasure” that has the pups helping out Cap’n Turbot after he accidentally finds a cave that used to be a pirate’s hideout long ago. Things become more interesting when they come across an incomplete treasure map and decide to find the missing pieces, which turns into an even bigger adventure than they planned for. Following the pirate theme, the next episode, “Pups and the Ghost Pirate” has the pups yet again teaming with Cap’n Turbot on Halloween as they have a party on an old pirate ship. It’s all fun and games until the ship starts heading out to sea on its own, and it’s up to the pups to find out if there’s really a ghost behind the joyride cruise.
There’s more water themed episodes to check out such as “Pups Save the Bay” where an oil spill in Adventure Bay has Ryder and the pups rescuing a baby whale, and “Pups Save a Pool Day” where the pups discover an empty swimming pool at their favorite water park thanks to a broken water tower, and it falls on them to find a way to fix it and save everyone from a hot day. The other two episodes on here don’t really feature any sea themes, but they’re still fun and entertaining to watch as with all of the adventures. With this being a DVD release, the picture and sound are decent, but I’d love to see this come to high definition as some point. While there’s a lack of special features, these six episodes run a little over two hours and should be more than enough paw patrol action for any viewer.
The PAW Patrol: The Great Pirate Rescue DVD is yet another great entry in the Nick Jr. collection that doesn’t fail to entertain and educate in fun ways. While it might be for younger viewers and lacks any special features, anyone and everyone is sure to have a swashbuckling good time with this one.
