Where'd this show go?
23 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I suddenly remembered this show out of nowhere a few nights ago, there was a thunderstorm that made me think of one of the episodes. When somebody (I think Kiki) was afraid of the storm. Where'd it go?! There is virtually nothing on this show anywhere. :( It was a good show, I watched it all the time when I was like 10 or 11.

I checked the PBS website, it says to check back for future updates! What future? The show doesn't even air anymore. Netflix doesn't have it either. I'm really sad about the whole thing.

It's a really great show though, very educational. Entertaining as well. The characters genuinely reflect a person's emotions. They handled things as realistically as possible, or so I thought. Most kids shows come at things too unrealistically, assuming that people will always react "the right way". This teaches kids how to interact with each other and learn to solve their own problems.
