Fact Alert: in order to give out 10 gallons of milk, they have to squeeze their own udders 3 times a day. Let's do a little Multiplication math: 32,000 cows have to squirt 10 gallons a day, so all together, they made 320,000 gallons of milk per day.

Now before I go to the Recommendations. Here's a negative thing about this. When this was sown on Amazon instant prime on the go video service, there have been some screen gliches causing the sound to be 3 seconds out of sync. The on the go Version of part 1 is excellent, but part 2 for the on the go version, fail!
So in Conclusion, Would I Recommend this 2 part set to Daycare Children & TMBV collectors everywhere? Well... I Have 3 Answers. I'll Say Yes to the standard DVDs, Yes to the Amazon On-the-go Version of part 1, and No to the Amazon on the go version for part 2. But at least they are intersting to learn from TM More often than Sesame Street's Quarter of a Billion Viewed Episodes of Elmo's World on Youtube, Christina Miller's Teen Titans Go Network, and Sharon Miller's Thomas the tank engine stories.
