great show for kids and parents
7 August 2004 | by (b'ville nj) – See all my reviews

This show is great, with an interesting premise - a smart fish that teaches his young owner science through the "great big book of everything" (or something like that!), which makes any science subject spring to life in 3-D. The fish humorously has an English accent and is a very brainy fish, which makes the whole setup pretty cute. Plus he's got a nice dry sense of humor. The shows theme is also very neat. The animation is simple but effective and seeing Stanley trying to get the creatures discussed back into the book before his parents open the door is great. This is one of those shows that help you spend precious quality time with your kids.
