Great for adults too
9 April 2006 | by (Michigan, United States) – See all my reviews

True, this is geared toward children, but as a teenager and well into my 20s, I adored this show. It was so simple, yet so funny. I loved the repetition of it as well. Every episode would start with Loonette and Molly waking up on the couch, Loonette does her stretch, then she and Molly go outside and chat with Granny Garbanzo and Major Bedhead who always comes by with a package from Aunty Macassre. After that, she and Molly go inside and read a story, then Loonette cleans up her mess and it's off to bed. There are also daily cameos by the Dust Bunnies whom only Molly knows about. Loonette doesn't believe they exist.

I also love that it has only a few main characters, Loonette, Molly, Granny, Major Bedhead, Snickelfritz the Cat, Aunty Macassre and the Dust Bunnies. This keeps it simple and isn't overwhelming. I don't really like shows with large ensemble casts.

There are also great jokes in it that had me laughing myself sick even though I was 21 when I watched this, such as when Loonette and Molly were having a rhyming game. Loonette said "soup", then we heard the pop for Molly's thought bubble, but didn't see what she was thinking. But Loonette got all disgusted and said "Molly!" Guess what word she used. I thought that was pretty edgy for a preschool TV show.

There is also humor that adults will get that will likely go right over little kids' heads such as some of the names. Aunty Macassre, Aunty Septic and I believe there was an Aunty Climactic once too.

Some of it was quite profound too, like the episode where the caterpillar died and Granny explained that it floated away. That was a great way to explain death in a way that a child would understand.
