DVD Review: Paw Patrol: Sea Patrol

Paw Patrol: Sea Patrol takes puppies to the one thing that some dogs normally don’t like: water. There are dogs that live to dive into ponds or pools. Most of these pets were bred to go duck hunting. But seeing how the pups of Paw Patrol are in the rescue business, they can’t let a little thing like water ruin their adventures. It helps though that have their own scuba suits including a mask, oxygen tank and wet suit. Although do you call dogs in scuba suits Frog Pups?

The DVD contains six episodes with Ryder and his doggie near water: “Pups Save a Baby Octopus,” “Pups Save a Shark,” Pups Save a Pier,” “Pirate Pups to the Rescue,” “Pups Save a Frozen Flounder” and “Pups Save a Narwhal.” As a grown up, the titles “Pups Save a Frozen Flounder” sounds like they arrived to late to keep the fish from ending up in the freezer at the supermarket. But they’re rescuing a boat that got stunk in the ice.

Because of a technical glitch, Josie’s review of Paw Patrol: Sea Patrol has vanished. She does still enjoy the adventures of the Paw Patrol. The show gives good tips on how to get out of jam. After we watched the episode about the Narwhal, we had to look online to see how the whale with the unicorn horn is a real animal and not just made up by animators. Once more the Nickelodeon show inspires an educational moment.

The video is 1.78:1 anamorphic. The CGI looks fine in the transfer. You get a sense when the show is taking place under the sea. The audio is Dolby Digital 5.1. The sound mix isn’t too intense for kids that might get nervous with pets working in rescue conditions. The first four episodes are dubbed in Spanish. The episodes are Closed Captioned.

No bonus features.
