There is a new cat in town on Monday, February 24th at 1pm, and thereafter everyday at 1pm. The cat name Callie, a Calico cat sheriff who keeps the peace in her frontier town of Nice and Friendly Corners using her magic lasso and cowgirl know-how. Both myself and B watched the first episode at home on Monday and it finally attract her to sit down and watched a full episode of a cartoon! (yes, B seldom really want to watch cartoon or kiddies series). She says the cat very cute! For me, I like the voice of Callie (by Mandy Moore).
This series taught about love, forgiveness, keeping peace and so forth living in a neighbourhood. Callie has a group of friends, Deputy Peck (by Disney's High School Musical, Lucas Grabeel) and B adores Toby, a sweet-natured cactus sidekick of Callie (by Jessica DiCicco - Disney's Gravity Falls).
As this is like a 'cowboy' show, the backdrop is set against a colourful Old West and the music in the series are also very nice. Each episode will have two memorable original songs that highlight and enhance the story. With a thematic emphasis on country-western tunes, the series pays homage to classic Western films and cowboy musical revues with songs including ‘We're Gonna Clean up This Town’ and ‘The Cowgirl Twirl’. An adorable trio of singing prairie dogs pops up to perform little ditties throughout each episode, emphasizing the lessons that are being introduced and providing a comedic transition between scenes.
So Daddy & Mommy, if you got time and having Disney Junior (ASTRO Channel 613) at home, do tune in for this series.
