Paw Patrol: Pups and the Pirate Treasure – Review by MJ, age 4¾

One of the boys’ favourite pastimes at the moment is pretending to be members of TV’s Paw Patrol, a team of friendly canine heroes that undertakes missions to help out the residents of Adventure Bay. Although the show is a huge hit in our house we very rarely get to see it (we don’t have Sky and the Channel 5 schedule clashes with the school run), so we jumped at the chance this week to review the latest Paw Patrol DVD.

As I’m not really a Paw Patrol expert, our resident TV critic MJ (age 4¾) has kindly agreed to share his thoughts:

MJ, how did you like Paw Patrol: Pups and the Pirate Treasure?

It was awesome.

What was your favourite episode (there are 6 in total on the DVD)?

I love the story about the pirate treasure. They find a bit of a treasure map and they have to find the rest to look for the pirate treasure. It was great. I also like the Halloween story with the ghost ship. And the one about the circus.

Who’s your favourite pup?

Marshall. He’s really clumsy all the time. He makes me laugh. But G (MJ’s brother) likes Ryder best (Ryder’s a little boy and team leader of the Paw Patrol).

Is there anything you didn’t like about the DVD?

Yes, I didn’t like the American voices. That was confusing. It was better when you fixed it. (Note to parents: there are two English versions on the DVD. You need to select “UK” for the characters to have the British accents that are broadcast on TV in the UK. The characters in the US English version have different voices/accents. It freaked the children out more than you’d expect…)

Would you like to watch it again?

Yes, let’s put it on again now.


I think it’s safe to say this is going to be first choice DVD for our car journeys over the Easter holidays. The boys are completely absorbed by it and have spent all week singing the theme tune and acting out storylines from the various different episodes. It makes a nice change from Peppa Pig and Bob the Builder (although, as with these other pre-school favourites, the theme tune is annoyingly catchy and I did find myself humming it in the supermarket).
