I’m reviewing and giving away the new Bob the Builder DVD on my dad blog today. Bob the Builder: Ultimate Can-Do Crew Collection is the latest DVD from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment, but the episodes appear to be older ones. For instance, Wendy is a housewife instead of a member of the Can-Do Crew in a couple of the episodes on the DVD. In addition, the episodes feature stop-motion animation instead of the CGI used in the newer episodes. Bob the Builder: Ultimate Can-Do Crew Collection DVD will be available on August 28, 2012. It has a list price of $9.98, but you can currently purchase it for $6.99 on Amazon.
The new Bob the Builder DVD has a run time of about 103 minutes. It includes ten episodes and two bonus features.
