Pathetic!

When this show is on, similar to what Joey from "Friends" once said: I want to rip my arm off just to have something to throw at the TV screen. My younger siblings like it--- but, even though it is a "kiddie show", it is still one of the worst out there.

It amazes me. Every year hundreds and hundreds of pilots are sent to television networks around the world and somehow they usually manage to choose the worst.

I don't even think it's educational for kids. One episode (one of the few I had to go through the torture of seeing because the computer and the TV are in the same room), anyway as I was saying- one of the episodes quietly suggested violence (but in the end the pathetic looking kid colored in purple just took down the bullies pants)- gee, what a great idea.

Do your kids (and yourself) a huge favor, if you happen to catch kids with horrible acting, one of them purple- change channels- immediately!
