As much as i want to say for myself, Part 1 from 2005 features some great examples on all the different types of tractors, ATVs and more. Plus some fine music from Jim Coffey, which includes some Johnny Poppers and a unique parade.
In part 2, there is an educational lesson on what tractors do at harvest time, plus a pumpkin patch with a wagon ride pulled by a model M. As well as some help from kids who help out at the patch. The William Tell Overturne was later used in Lionel Nation 6 for the Lone Ranger Segment. After that, there's a James Coffey song: Pickin' Pumpkins in the Pumpkin Patch, plus a Silly Otto segment where he is dumping the sand in the wrong truck. This next segment was the first All about John Deere for kids segment where we see how Toy Trains and Real Trains played a big role hauling John Deere equipment from factories to farms and building sites, with a James Coffey song: When John Deere's Riding the Rail. Plus an educational segment on how JD uses Dozers at Construction sites, and forests. Plus a James Coffey Song: Which Animals do and Don't Belong? After that, there's a visit to the 2-cylinder expo in Moline, IL. Plus Beethoven's Symphony #5 where it was previously used in the N&W 611 segment in I love toy trains 2, but also uses on Johnny Poppers in the Snow. After that, there's an educational segment on a Grape Harvest, A James Coffey Song: Put on Your work boots and start your John Deere. A Silly Otto Segment where he is running 5 minutes late trying to load the tractors back in the flatbeds. Plus a game of Real or Toy. And we Wrap up the video on why John Deere has to work through the night without any sleep.
In part 3, which was the very first all about John Deere video narrated by Jeff McComas, there is a visit to the Thresherman & collector's show in Albert City Iowa, which includes steam powered tractors and sawmills, to today's John Deere Style and Unstyle tractors, Bottom plows, the poppers, and the Model D's. Plus at the end of the day, the show performs a fantastic parade. An educational segment on Vintage Automobiles is also included. Plus a James Coffey song: A field that I can Tend. An educational segment on how John Deere played a big role in helping out in the forest is also shown, with a visit to western Canada in the British Columbia region. A silly Otto segment where he doesn't know the difference between the words east and west. A James Coffey song: Watch those Tractors Get 'er done. Plus an educational segment on how JD played a huge role in road construction, as well as tearing down old houses and build new ones. A Silly Otto Segment where he got the load in the wrong dump truck, and some details about JD plows. Finally another game of Real or Toy is shown.
Finally In part 4 which was marked as the final All About John Deere Video ever made before it was renamed to John Deere Action, There is the festival of lights parade at christmas in Palm Springs California for the first Saturday of December. A visit to John Deere Heaven with a Theme Song from the heaven's own video is sung by James Coffey, with MTH trains and other JD toys. There is also an Educational Segment on Wheel Loaders, with a James Coffey Song: Before you know it you've Build Something. How to Restore a Johnny Popper, as well as another visit to JD Heaven where the trains are hauling Construction vehicles with a Modified version of I'm An Engineer from Part 4 of The I Love Toy Trains Classic Series. How Tractors and Combines Harvest Hay is also shown, and it also includes a special Silly Otto Segment where he takes the remote control of the Driverless Concept tractor. A special visit to Chatfield Colorado's Pumpkin Festival is also shown. Bethany Zill from All About Cowboys Performs Fire up that old John Deere. Plus a special segment on an invention where a JD tractor floats a basketball in the sky. Finally we close the series with a song of the name game with animals and James Coffey Singing. and in the closing credits there is a night visit to JD Heaven where all the MTH Toy Trains Are Busy.
All in all, Would I recommend this 4-part boxset to Kids of all ages? Absolutely Yes! And its also fun to learn from TMBV more often rather than Watching Sesame Street's Quarter of A Billion Viewed Videos of Elmo's World on Youtube.
