Good, but could be better
23 June 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I know this review is being done nine years after the show, The Why Why Family, was out, I feel that I must do this review, for kicks. The Why Why Family is a show similar to that of, Hysteria, in the sense that it tries to teach young children assorted things, like how an oven operates. But unlike Hysteria, the Why Why Family wasn't very funny. The show really centered around getting the message out in a child friendly way, rather than actually appealing to young children, with a good sense of humor. Because of this, the show is dull, and is really only for the people who want their children to ascertain vast amounts of knowledge. In general, the show did get out the messages that they had intended for children. Though the information given wasn't very funny, it was still given in an understandable manner. And besides this, the theme song was very catchy, though many don't consider this a very redeeming quality of a television show.
