Bonus features on the DVD include sing-alongs, animated storybooks, a look behind the scenes and a meet-the-characters segment for even more Chuck & Friends fun.
“Chuck’s Big Air Dare” follows Chuck and his friends as they are introduced to a talented race truck named Flip who can spin in midair, and even do cartwheels! Naturally, Chuck gets a little jealous and sets out to prove that he’s just as talented as Flip, resulting in both trucks learning a valuable lesson: they need each other to succeed.
