As I See It:
I was just four when I went to my first picture show. How I loved Song of the South’s animation and its lessons on life! My father took me back to see it several times in that first run. That was long ago and long before big screen televisions and home theaters arrived in most living rooms. Disney opened a lot of doors with its movies, tv series, and accompanying dvds. How I love to sit with my grandkids and watch things through their eyes!
Recently my grandson and I spent an afternoon together watching Sheriff Callie’s Wild West, a Disney animated show. It made my grandson happy. It made me happy too watching him sing, talk and even dance. Its magic lasso and a big heart brought us together. Its lessons on life, character, and choices preschoolers especially need.
Howdy Partner is the first Sheriff Callie dvd released. Its heroes calico cat Sheriff Callie and sidekicks horse Sparky, cactus Toby, and bird Deputy Peck bring fairness, honesty, and good morals to the Old West frontier town of Nice & Friendly Corners with some help from singing prairie dogs.

My Opinion Only:
Each of the Sheriff Calli unlinked episodes builds from exceptional voice acting, cute anthropomorphic animals, and tuneful country music scoring. Scripting stresses getting along with others. Its 110 minutes running time goes by fast. Tag Sheriff Calli as wholesome, educational entertainment for little ones.
