This Show Really Rules
3 April 2003 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

This show really was a great show. I used to watch it every time it was on when I was younger, and I wish I could find it on nowadays. It's surprising that the only career that really took off was Christine Taylor's (every time I see her I sing the theme song - Yippy Ki Yi Yay, like the cowboys say). This show was a great show for any kid to watch - it was funny, and of course, it taught a lesson, as every show in the world did back in the early 90s. Sorry my review was bad. Just felt I hadda share some thoughts.
