Busytown Mysteries Review


A new show airing mornings on CBS is based off of Richard Scarry’s books and features his classic characters lead by Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm, as they solve the many every day mysteries of Busytown. Busytown Mysteries engages children with fun storylines and lovable characters, while introducing them to deductive reasoning skills. Who? What? When? Where? Why?

You can also check out the Busytown website, where kids can visit neighborhoods in Busytown, interact with the Busytown characters and play 14 games and activities designed for preschoolers.

Serious Tested:

Growing up with the Busytown characters, I was pretty excited about the new show. However, #1 is a hard nut to crack when it comes to new shoes. She gets stuck on her favorites and is hard to convince to watch new ones. She’s let me show it to her one time, but I know that if we keep watching it, she will love it.

The website has some fun tools, too. You get to pick your own character and car. And, then you go around locations and do different tasks including capturing lost butterflies, picking up trash planting flowers and more.

Watch it:Check your local CBS listings for airtimes and dates.

I received a copy of 2 mini-episodes to facilitate my review. My opinions are my honest, and thoughtful views and were not influenced by any source. I was not compensated monetarily for this review and giveaway.

  1. Busytown Mysteries has been on for ages here in Canada – and my boys LOVE LOVE LOVE this show!!!! My little one, who is 22 months old, dances to the 'who-what-when-where-who-what-when-where-why-and-how' part – and makes me rewind it over and over and over again! Great show. Very cute and smart. My oldest son LOVES all the Richard Scarry books, too!
