The Wheels on The Bus on KCRT

The Wheels on The Bus
The award-winning Wheels on the Bus series is a collection of children’s videos, DVDs and music CDs, that teach Early Socialization skills, such as helping, sharing, taking turns and getting along.

Based on the classic children’s song, “The Wheels on the Bus,” these musical adventures  will delight and entertain young children. The episodes, with characters Mango, Papaya and Argon,  are educational and entertaining for toddlers and preschool kids, ages two to five years.

Roger Daltrey of The WHO stars as the voice of Argon the Dragon, the bus driver. Daltrey has teamed with composer Laura Hall of the hit ABC show, Whose Line is it, Anyway? to record all the classic verses of “Wheels on the Bus” along with new kid songs that appeal to both kids and adults.

The series also features actress Janie Escalle, who debuted in her first Wheels on the Bus video when she was 7 years old. She has appeared live on stage in classic musicals such as "Annie," "Gypsy," "Children of Eden," "Goodbye Girl," "Seussical," as well as others in venues around San Diego such as The Walk Resort, The Moonlight Ampitheatre, Carlsbad Cultural Arts Theatre and Mira Costa Community College. She enjoys singing with the performing show choir at school and is proud to have been a part of The Wheels on the Bus series.

The Wheels on the Bus has won multiple awards, including the Parent’s Choice Silver Honor award, The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval, the Dove Foundation Recommendation, Creative Child Magazine Award and many more.
