I loved this show...and still do!!!
12 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes yes, we have all seen the movie by Tim Burton, starring Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder. It was wonderful. This show is meant for kids. If you have seen the movie, there is some obsceneties, and gestures that are not meant to be seen by kids. But what Tim Burton did with this show is, make it to where its not so offensive for the kids eyes. What kids were into back then was grossing each other out and finding new means of entertainment. I think, that this was fulfilled by them watching this show. How could i know this? Because i was one of those kids. I watched this show whenever it came on. And now that i am older i watch it and show it to my kid. He's one, but he enjoy's it very much. I mean i still sit and watch it and laugh at some of the things said by the main characters. I would suggest this show to any kid or adult!! Way to go Tim!!
