I think this has to be my personal favorite when it comes to the Fresh Beat Band. I love the Wizard of Oz themed episode, and so did my daughter. I think when shows like this use other popular movies kids already know to base episodes on it's a lot of fun, plus they are able to make that connection with a favorite movie.
