Cheesey and very cute, but not much else.
11 September 2000 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

After watching the videocassette ("Funhouse Follies and Other Stories") of this series that I purchased for very cheap at a local video store, I realised why this was such a minor player in the annals of 80's toy cartoons. There's not much to it. Kids befriend kawii marsupials who get into mischief and eventually everything is sorted out before mom and dad notice. Simplicity itself. Aside from that it isn't very interesting. The video I happen to have, however, was well worth the $3.00 for the supplementary live action/puppetry prequal. It is the cheesiest thing in America. It's worth checking out if you can find it. The dialogue is classic. All I have to say is, quoting the dad, "We just traumatised the kids by giving away a box of their imaginary friends to Goodwill". Speaking of Goodwill, it gets mentioned a lot in the prequal, so I'm guessing that this was meant to be some way to get kids to give to their local thrift store. If that is so, the writers definately went the long way to get the message across. Odd.
