You know we are Handy Manny fans at my house. We decorated Will's room in a Handy Manny theme (if that doesn't show dedication, I don't know what does). That is why I was super excited to learn about the special Handy Manny show this Saturday (it's on my birthday too!). For those who don't watch Handy Manny, it was launched in 2006. The Disney's Emmy-nominated animated series shares the adventures of Manny, a bilingual handyman, and his talking tools. Geared toward preschoolers, the show helps kids learn important lessons like problem solving and working together while introducing them to Latin culture and common Spanish words and phrases.
Well, the show on Saturday may be Handy Manny's toughest one yet! Guest stars Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Lance Bass join Wilmer Valderrama (the voice of Manny) and the rest of the “Handy Manny” gang as they prepare for the famed Wood Valley 500 race. Manny and the tools team up with Eliot to revamp his used race car, as race time approaches, Elliot's nerves get the best of him. Famous racecar driver, Chase Davis (Earnhardt, Jr.) and Manny both jump in to help. You can see a sneak preview on YouTube!
I know we'll be watching this on Saturday! The really cool thing is that we will be going to see Playhouse Disney Live that day and Handy Manny will be in it. This show will be a great encore for us!
