Baby Van Gogh is the 4th video to be released in the Baby Einstein series. It is both the first art and colors/shapes video from the series. Its counterpart CD is Art Time Classics. It teaches your child about art in six colors, yellow, green, orange, purple, red, and blue. It was released in a 'special' pack including the VHS and the book. It was later re-released sometime in 2004, with some alterations. The video is one of the companion pieces to Baby da Vinci and Baby Monet, the videos that revolve around art and Baby Newton, a video that teaches shapes.

  • Buena Vista Home Entertainment/Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment (2002-2004)

Trivia[]

  • Baby Van Gogh was the first BE video distributed by Family Home Entertainment, who distributed the videos until 2001, after World Animals, when The Baby Einstein Company was acquired by Disney.
  • This is the first BE video to have the Baby Einstein caterpillar logo in its original release.
  • This video was the basis for the World of Colors discovery kit.
  • This is the first BE video to be released in the 2000's decade.
  • This is the first BE video to feature the 2000 Baby Einstein Tutorial promo.
  • This is also the first video to feature music by more than one composer.
  • This is also the first video to feature babies and boys rather than just girls.
  • Several toys here were seen in other videos: rainbow Blacklight Mind Bender Blurz in Baby Shakespeare; the Gearation in Baby Shakespeare and Baby da Vinci; the Alien Orbiter and The Wave Machine in Baby Mozart, as well as the Fiber Optic Butterfly replaced in 2004; the Bag O' Blocks in Numbers Nursery, Baby Shakespeare (2004) and Baby Newton (2004); the Jester-in-the-Box and Giraffe Cone Puppet in World Animals and Meet The Orchestra; the Huggy Buggy Cars in Numbers Nursery, and the Teddy Mobile in Baby Lullaby.
  • Yellow, Green, and Blue are the only colors to feature the same toy scenes from 2000-2003 and 2004.
  • Orange, Purple, and Red are the only colors to feature toy alternations from 2000-2003 and 2004.
  • This is the first appearances of Duck in Legends & Lore form, Baby Bach the Bunny (as a puppet), Morris Moose, and Misty Mouse. This is the only appearances of Vincent Van Goat, Bonkers the Frog, Benny the Butterfly, Vivian Van Goat, and Max Lamb (footage of them was reused in World of Colors, except for Benny).
  • This is the only appearances of Brad, Gabriel, and Brandon (footage of them was reused in Baby's First Sounds and World of Colors). This is the first appearances of Mia, Macrae, and Maddison.
  • This is the last appearance of Madeline.
  • This is the first video to have classical music by Bizet, Rossini, Strauss, Jr., Brahms and Tchaikovsky.
  • This is the only video to have classical music by Satie, Mussorgsky, Ravel and Offenbach.
  • This is the only video to include a toy chest at the end of a VHS release in its original release.
    • This is also the fifth and last video to include a toy chest at the end of a VHS release, the other four being Language Nursery, Baby Mozart, Baby Bach and Baby Shakespeare.
  • This is almost the shortest video ever made.
  • This is the second video where the opening and closing themes are not in C Major or G Major. The opening theme, Gymnopédie No. 1 by Erik Satie is in D Major and the closing theme 1812 Overture by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is in E Flat Major before Pictures at an Exhibition, Promenade I by Modest Mussorgsky is in B Flat Major during the showing of pictures at the end of the video.
  • This is the only BE video where the letters in the word "baby" in the title logo are in different colors from what they usually are:
    • The first "b" is green instead of red
    • The "a" is bigger and is red instead of yellow
    • The second "b" stays blue
    • The "y" is purple instead of green
  • The 2004 version on the opening titles is the only release that has Baby Mozart the Koala instead of Baby Vivaldi the Mallard.
  • The Concert Hall of the 2002 DVD and some later prints of the 2000 DVD has music from the Art Time Classics 2000 CD, except; Boléro by Maurice Ravel. However Boléro is present on some early prints of the 2000 DVD. Boléro was also omitted in the 2002, UK, Chinese, and some other foreign DVDs. The reason for that was due to the issues regarding copyright; given the piece being composed in 1953. However the piece's copyright expired in 2016. However, the Art Time Classics CD enclosed on the VHS contains Boléro by Maurice Ravel, but not the Baby Van Gogh Soundtrack CD, which is enclosed on the 2001-2002 VHS that features almost all the classical music from the Baby Van Gogh Soundtrack CD, in which the Gymnopédie No. 1 in D Major by Erik Satie isn't on the Art Time Classics 2000 CD or the Baby Van Gogh Audio Sampler CD enclosed on the 2003-2004 VHS, that BabyEinstein12702 is the only enthusiast to have the VHS w/CD. However, some copies of the 2003 VHS come with the Baby Van Gogh Soundtrack CD because the 2003 VHS is the same as 2002, besides the cover.
  • Baby Van Gogh was originally going to have the sections about the colors Gray, Pink, Brown, White, Tan, Indigo, and Black on the Art Time Classics 2000 CD, but they were removed because Julie think the video might be way too long.
  • In some foreign releases, the kids behind the scenes in the credits were removed.
  • Vincent is the first character to talk. At the end of the Yellow Music Video, he's heard saying "Oui!" (Which is French for "Yes!"), "Ooh la la!" when he saw Vivian in the Purple Puppet Show, and in the Purple Music Video, "Merci beaucoup!" (French for "Thank you very much!"), implying that he may be French. (Even though the real Vincent Van Gogh was Dutch.)
  • The video's toy chest included an image of Vincent behind the paint buckets (the same ones in the "Blue" introduction). It's possible that this could have been a deleted scene in the video, however many speculate it was made just for the toy chest.
  • The 2004 DVD release removes Markie's in-credits scene, as well as Julie Clark's credit for the color poems. The name chyrons for the children are also missing for an unknown reason just like Baby Shakespeare.
  • According to a TED talk in 2011, Julie Clark confirmed that Baby Van Gogh was her favorite Baby Einstein video she worked on. This was evident when she showed clips of the video (mainly opening montage with March of the Toreadors and a shortened version of the Yellow music video; William Tell Overture: March of the Swiss Soldiers) when she's doing other public speaking events about entrepreneurship.​[1]
  • All the composers in this video are from the Romantic era.

Goofs[]

  • There's a green screen error in the 2000-2003 versions in Baby Van Gogh in Vincent's Paint Accident scene. His green spots are gone and the spots become transparent to the actual background. Disney eventually fixed it in 2004 and 2010 Discovery Kit versions. This is one of the few times where Disney fixes a mistake for later releases.
  • Shortly after the 1st green balloon popped, you can carefully see a needle that was used for popping balloons behind Vincent's right ear.
  • In the orange puppet show when Baby Bach the Bunny in a dual role makes his copy magically appear out of the hat, you can briefly see the cord to the explosion device used behind the hat peek out.
  • If you look closely when Vincent Van Goat is finished painting in the Orange segment, you can see a bug crawling up Vincent's back.
  • If you look carefully at the transition from the Deluxe F1 Level 5 Ramp Racer to the purple puppet show in the 2004 version, you can see a little bit of the Level 4 Ramp Racer from its original release.
  • In the "Purple" puppet show where Vincent falls in love with Vivian Van Goat, if you look closely as Vincent says "Ooh la la!" Markie Scholz's head can be visible above the purple bar.
  • At the end of the "Purple" music video, Vincent can be seen trying to make finishing touches to the painting, yet when he turns around, he isn't holding a paintbrush at all.
