On her task, Keys commented "After speaking with kids who said they loved 'The Backyardigans,' I knew this would be a great project for me to get involved in. Working alongside my niece was so much fun and the people at Nick Jr. helped to make it a great experience. I can't wait to see it all put together to make one great episode."
