Coming to DVD this week from SHOUT! Kids Factory and Hasbro Studios is the fabulously exciting ten episodes of THE ADVENTURES OF CHUCK AND FRIENDS: BUMPERS UP!

This film tells the continuing story of Chuck, the little dump truck who has no problem dreaming big! Along with his friends Digger (a backhoe), Handy (a tow truck), Rowdy (a garbage truck), Biggs (a monster truck), Boomer (a fire truck) and Flip (a stunt truck) they are always looking for adventure.

FINAL WORD: Being a big fan of this series I can’t brag on it enough. Shout! Factory Kids and Hasbro continues to bring family entertainment and remember that that includes – the family!

This series shows the closeness and craziness that is family with Chuck’s Mother Haulie the forklift, Dad Porter the big rig and brother Rally the racing truck. There are such amazing personalities here and like Digger who is Spanish and Soku who is from Japan.

The series offers the young viewers a chance to experience cultural difference but, at the same time, cultural similarities as this four-wheel gang is just endearing. Each episode brings such creativity and even fun for everyone in the family to enjoy.

Hasbro includes some of the most iconic shows including TRANSFORMERS, MY LITTLE PONY and LITTLEST PET SHOP. There shows are seen on The Hub at

TUBS OF POPCORN: I give THE ADVENTURES OF CHUCK & FRIENDS: BUMPERS UP! three and a half tubs of popcorn out of five. A few months ago our family welcomed my grandson and this is exactly the kind of shows I want him to see. They are based in friendships, human flaws, forgiveness, a little fun, some action, a lot of adventure, and great dynamics.

The DVD includes all 10 episodes with Choosy Chuck, The Art of Being Chuck, Commercial Trucks, Prince Chuck, Light Cameras Trucks!, Truck and Roll, Contest Countdown, Soku-Kun, Rowdy The Rock Star and Flower Power.

In the end – friends for the long haul!
