I never liked this show very much. There are some children's shows that I don't mind, and there's some I even enjoy myself (although these are mostly older kids' shows.) But "Maggie and the Ferocious Beast" is one show I would not recommend. It's OK for children under two or three years old, but older children often get ideas off TV, which could easily happen if they watch Maggie. The show can indeed teach good manners, but otherwise the ideas can be unwise and even upsetting to children who don't know better. For example, in one show, Hamilton the pig caught a fish from a pond to keep as a pet. If a young child watches that, they might think it's a good idea and request to do the same thing sometime, perhaps on a family outing to a park with a pond. They could easily become upset and frustrated if they're not able to do everything on the show that the characters seem to be able to accomplish so easily. Additionally, I think some of the shows can be a bit frightening to a small child. Even the thought of a giant beast can scare some children, as well as "the big duck" on the show, which could easily give children nightmares. I would not recommend this show unless the person watching is too young to try the ideas on the show or be frightened by any of the show's characters.
