Danny went to the movies for the every first time this summer. Bil took him to see Wall-E, and he seemed to enjoy it well enough, though he wasn't nearly as effusive as I thought he would be. That is, until he started seeing advertisements for the video. Then, he told me over and over how dad had taken him to see the movie and that it was his very favorite. So, I promised him that we would rent it once it came out on video. Well, I am now prepared to buy this video. I am more excited about my children watching this video than anything, and this is why:
Wall-E is a robot whose job is to clean up the mess the humans left on Earth. He has spent the last 700 years just cleaning up messes and listening to show tunes. It is a cute movie, but the reason I really like it? The day after Danny viewed the video, he started pretending to be Wall-E, which basically entailed him frenetically cleaning up his and Charlotte's room using robot-like movements. Now when I want him to clean up, we pretend he is Wall-E. Not sure how long this will work, but I plan on milking it!
This is one cartoon character who I can support!
