OOGIELOVES IN THE BIG BALLOON ADVENTURE cover image Click to play video trailer
Kenn Viselman, who helped make Thomas the Tank Engine and Teletubbies a household name, has come up with a new movie concept for kids with Matthew Diamond as the Director. Scott Stabile is the writer. The concept is awesome. This is a movie like no other I have ever seen. You actually get to dance, sing and cheer in the movie theater. No one tells you to please sit down and be quiet. You get to have fun. The butterflies tell you when it is time to get up and move around and the turtles tell you when it is time to slow down, take a seat and enjoy the show. Don't forget to clap for all the little dancer when they are done. The movie is interactive and you feel like you are part of the movie because you get to participate in the actual show. There is no violence or villains, just a fun family friendly movie. Chazz Palminten aka Marvin Milkshake and Guistina Chirco aka Marna make you rethink what you want in your milkshake the next time you order one. The Oogieloves Goobie, Zoozie and Toofie live in Lovelyloveville which is a colorful happy place. When their 5 balloons fly away they go on an adventure to retrieve them. Windy Window provides clues to J. Edger (Hoover) to help them on their hunt for the balloons to give to their friend Schluufy's for the big surprise Birthday party. They must use problem solving skills at each adventure to solve the many puzzles of how to capture the balloons. The clock is ticking will they make it in time for the big party? Along the way they meet a great cast of characters: The Fabulous Cloris Leachman plays Dotty Rounder, Jamie Pressly is Lola Sombrero, Christopher Lloyd the bongo playing Lero Sombrero, Cary Elwes with his crazy bird is Bobby Wobbly, Toni Braxton is the singer Rosalie Rosebud and many more people you will get to know and love. The songs are original, creative and you will have the lyrics stuck in your head with a smile on your face. The puppets look real and are very funny. Wait till you see what the raccoons can do. It is appropriate for all your youngsters. Your children can go see a movie and act like a kid. I would recommend this movie for ages 3 and up. I give it five twinkling stars. This movie will be showing nationwide "Oogust" 29, 2012. Morgan Bertsch, age 7, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.

This is the first ever interactive movie. I can't wait to watch it again with friends, so we can do the Oogie Cheers and dances together. The fun characters in this movie are Goobie, Zoobie and Toofie. They went to an adventure to look for the balloons that flew away from Lovelyloveville. They are able to trace the balloons locations one by one. However, The Ooglieloves need the audience to and their friends to help get the balloons. They need to find these balloons before Schluufy wakes up. These magical balloons are for Schluufy's surprise birthday party. This movie has so many famous and fun actors. Toni Braxton, Cloris Leachman, Christopher Lloyd, Cary Elves and Jaime Pressley. These great actors sing, dance and cheers through-out the movie. All the songs are very catchy and easy to remember. They explain to us that when we see the butterflies going across the screen, we can stand up follow the actors lead. When we see the turtles going across the screen, we can sit down. I was not comfortable with getting out of my seat at first until I see the two-year-old in front of me just go out in the aisle dance and sing. The songs are so good that I just stand up and sing along. I am so surprise that the same two-year-old is so focus on the movie and gets the cues right away. Most of the audience interacts with the movie so it was great being able to do what I feel like doing, while watching a movie. All the kids make sing, dance and have a great time. It's like watching a movie, sing-a-long and dance at a party. The costumes in this movie are vibrant with colors and full of designs that kids love to see. The music makes us all want to dance and move around. This movie set is magical. My favorite character is Ruffy the fish. He's always wanted to do the hard tasks and protecting the Oogieloves. He is the funniest character in this movie. The messages of this movie are lots of love and teamwork. I rank this movie 5 out of 5 stars. I give this age ranged 2-8.

It's Schluufy's birthday, and the Oogieloves (Goobie, Zoozie and Toofie), along with their friends J. Edgar, Windy Window and Ruffy, are organizing a party. (Shh! It's a secret.) Everything is going along just perfectly until J. Edgar trips and loses the last five magical balloons in all of Lovelyloveville--OH NO! The Oogiloves set out to find the magical balloons in time to save their friend's party. Along the way, they meet some very interesting characters indeed, including Dotty Rounder (Cloris Leachman), Bobby Wobbly (Carey Elwes), Milky Marvin (Chazz Palminteri), Rosalie Rosebud (Toni Braxton) and Lola and Lero Sombero (Christopher Lloyd and Jaime Pressly). Can these new friends help them recover the magical balloons and get back to the cottage in time to celebrate Schluufy's surprise birthday?
