New DVD, books & article
Posted on 03/04/08 by Stephanie 4:11 AM 1 Comment

A new Doodlebops DVD will be released on May 6th, 2008 called Doodlebops: Live in Concert which you can pre-order now! Remember, everything you order through DRM goes toward keeping the site open :)

There is also a whole bunch of books now avaiable!

TF member, Jenni, found this recent article where Chad talks more about how the audition process worked and how they have never missed a show:

“An ailing Greg Page recently retired after a 15-year stint with the Wiggles, the wildly popular tot-rockers from Down Under. The show has gone on, with a new man in yellow. But McNamara — who has learned to play guitar like alter ego Rooney — expects the Doodlebops won’t bop ’til they drop. He’d like to see the show live on in reruns then evolve into a cartoon.

Touring is hard on the trio, he noted, “and we’ve never, ever had understudies,” he said.

“And none of us has ever missed a show. We’ve done it through food poisoning, laryngitis, a broken ankle — we cover for each other.

“We can read each other like a book. We know when to step in.”

Overall, though, he has no complaints with kiddie iconhood. He does wish his signature color was green, though green hair, skin and a wig “might not look too good,” he agreed.

What amazes him is how little ones seem to recognize him when he’s out of costume. “When I’m in an elevator, I find them staring at me,” he said.

“I can just catch (a baby’s eye) and can tell they think they know who I am. It must be my voice.”

“We talked to Lisa Lennox, 26, who plays lead singer Deedee with her Doodlebop siblings, Rooney and Moe. She was in Miami, where she was vacationing with “best buddy” Chad McNamara (he’s Rooney Doodle).
