Baby Van Gogh is the fifth video in the Baby Einstein Series which was released on August 14, 2000, a year before Clock Day. Hosted by Vincent Van Goat, it introduces the six primary colors, yellow, green, orange, purple, red, & blue. through toys, nature, puppets, poetry, & the art of Vincent Van Gogh. It was later re-released in 2004 with some sketches changed.
