The Key to the Nile
USA, 2004  TV  

TV-series The Backyardigans

Tasha envisions herself the Queen of Egypt, CleoTasha. She demands complete subservience from her underlings Tyrone, Pablo, and Austin. When Egypt is struck by a horrible draught she is forced to go on a voyage in search of three precious gifts for the sphinx Unica that will help unlock the waters of the Nile. During the trip she learns she cannot do this alone.

Episode from the educational series "The Backyardigans" which chronicles the make-believe adventures of five preschool-aged animals (playing in their backyard) who love to sing and dance. In this episode children learn about saying "please" and "thank you" as the authoritative (Cleo)Tasha character discovers she needs the help of others to succeed.
