Something everyone should watch!
13 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was younger, I watched this cartoon all the time. Sure, I still had my share of David the Gnome, Muppet Babies, and so on, but this cartoon was much more educational to me, and it still kept my interest as a small child. I was disappointed when it came off the air.

There are so many characters in the series, and so many different stories for each one (although many of them are memorable, such as Bananas Gorilla). Each episode would have two segments that took place in Busy Town, one segment that took place somewhere in the world, and two educational songs that would tell how something is made, manners, etc. inbetween each segment. There's no racial division since all the characters are anthromorphic animals, but it is definitely a cartoon that needs to be played today.
