Tot rock sensation The Doodlebops, stars of their own hit TV show on Playhouse Disney, are coming to retail shelves near you with the first ever U.S. release of their CD and DVDs, as well as tickets for their 65+ city tour on August 1st.

The Doodlebops are preschoolers’ favorite Rock Band and now they are starring in their own hit TV series. The Doodlebops have three very distinct personalities and approach the world in different ways. The interaction between the three is similar to that of school classmates or siblings. Deedee acts as the oldest and the leader. Deedee will drive forward with a plan, Moe will inadvertently upset the plan and Rooney will think of a way to solve the problem. The strongest bond between the three friends is their love of music.

“Rock & Bop” and “Dance and Hop” DVDs from Lionsgate each feature over 2 hours of Doodlebops fun, music and dance! Each DVD includes 4 episodes from the top-rated Playhouse Disney program, and several fun interactive features like sing-alongs, music videos and knock-knock jokes!

‘Rock & Bop with the Doodlebops’ audio CD from Walt Disney Records features 21 hit songs from kids favorite rockin’ band! This release includes such toe-tappin’ tunes as “We’re the Doodlebops,” “Wobbly Whoopsy,” and “Get on the Bus.”

These products are sure to get kids movin’ and groovin’ in a healthy and positive direction with their friends Deedee, Rooney and Moe Doodle.

As if that weren’t enough, The Doodlebops will kick off their Live U.S. Tour this fall! Tickets go on sale on August 1st, visit The Doodlebops website for cities and dates and to join the Official Doodlebops Fan Club!

The Doodlebops will get kids singing, dancing and learning with their upbeat energetic music and funny stories. In every episode of The Doodlebops, young viewers will learn physical development (coordination, dancing), music education, pro-social messages (sharing, caring teamwork and cooperation) and language and literacy skills (rhyming and word recognition) all through the power of music and song.

The format of this daily half-hour variety show will focus on music and song with repeating lyrics to encourage young children to sing along. Most of the songs will involve specific actions, acting out lyrics, or following easy dance-step instructions. The show will include themes which will be explored in each show arising out of situations experienced by the band members and their friends.
