Where do I start with Maggie And The Ferocious Beast? Well for one thing, I grew up on it. But don't think I'm just looking at this show through the rosy glasses of nostalgia. Maggie is constantly adventurous, Hamilton is hilariously anxious and finicky, and the titular beast is funny. In all honesty, even as a kid I never understood why the show was called Maggie And The Ferocious Beast since the beast isn't the least bit ferocious. Granted, the beast is Maggie's imaginary friend and she named him and the title is quite catchy. The theme song is also very catchy (Maggie and the Ferocious Beast in Nowhere Land, come along if you can, and the plot should be familiar to anyone who has ever possessed an imagination. Maggie, Beast, and Hamilton explore a place called Nowhere Land, each day traveling to a new place on Maggie's map. Even if the nostalgia factor wasn't there, there would be so much that I would like about the show. I don't have any kids but if I did I would much rather have them emulate Maggie than say iCarly. For the past several years, I've been introducing my childhood movies/shows to the kids I nanny for (a 2-year-old girl, a 3-year-old girl, a 4-year-old girl, a 4-year-old boy, a 5- year-old boy, a 5-year-old girl, a 10-year-old girl, and a 12-year-old boy). I started spending time with them when the 10 and 12-year-old were young and all the kids enjoy this show just as I did. I also have a 9-month-old cousin who I plan on showing this to when she gets a little older. Simply put, what a great show for all ages!
