BURBANK, Calif., January 22, 2009 – Are YOU ready to Go Green with Manny? Manny and his gang of talking tools want to help save the earth and you can help in Handy Manny: Manny’s Green Team, new on Disney DVD on March 31, 2009.

Team up with your favorite handyman and his group of boisterous tools to learn about conserving and preserving the earth’s valuable resources. Manny and the gang need YOUR help to complete all their green tasks as they restore cool air for the science fair, protect an endangered nest of baby turtles and harness the power of the sun with a solar-powered motorized sign! With a never-before-seen episode and eco-friendly bonus material including a fun family printable check list to help you turn your home green, plus a fun recycling game- “Livin’ La Vida Verde”, Manny’s Green Team is the best way to inspire the whole family to pitch in, roll up their sleeves and “go green!”

In never-before-seen episode Saving Turtles, Manny and the gang take in some beautiful natural scenery and protect a nest of endangered baby turtles. Working together on the shores of Manny’s favorite lake, the gang proves that looking after the natural world is easy when you work as a team.

Wilmer Valderrama of “That ‘70s Show” is the voice of the main character, Manny Garcia, who is the best handyman in the town of Sheetrock Hills and uses his box of mismatched tools to help him make repairs all over town. Each episode focuses on teamwork, friendship and the value of community, as well as teaching basic Spanish language skills.

In 2007, Handy Manny was a top-rated program on Playhouse Disney with preschoolers aged 2-5 (Source: Quarterly Sales Highlights – U.S. Performance: April-June 2007). Manny and his tools live by the motto “You break it, we fix it!” Among his tools are Pat, the bumbling hammer; Felipe, the ambitious screwdriver; Turner, the grumpy screwdriver; Stretch, the nearly perfect tape measure; Rusty, the fearful monkey wrench; Squeeze, the curious pliers; and Dusty, the not-so-dainty handsaw

  • “Livin’ La Vida Verde” Recycling Challenge Game
  • Fun Family tips on going green
