You're telling me it's a kids' show? But I didn't even notice it!
26 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

Why isn't anyone talking about this show? Why isn't everybody watching it? Seriously, as far as kids shows go, this is a true landmark, and one of the finest things going on TV at the moment. I read that this show is aimed at children from 3-7 years old, but if that's the case, how come I, 19 years old, have been watching it every day for weeks? I never had too many hopes on television. I knew there were a couple of gems to be fished out of the swamp of sit-coms and aimless dramas, but I never thought a kids show, of all things, would put them all to shame. Why can't other writers watch this show and learn a few things about complexity and deepness in writing? The stories are rich, well paced, funny and constructive. Even the more subpar episodes put the latest seasons of The Simpsons on the trashbin (and I am a fan of the Simpsons). The characters are complex and extremely realistic. It truly surprised be how well the writers work these characters, and make pigs, ducks and bulls sound, act and FEEL like real children. They're right there, in front of your eyes, and you don't realize they are computer animated. And I thought that characters in shows like those could be shallow and bi-dimensional, and it would be fine, after all, it's just educational entertainment for children. Not with "Jakers!", though. With beautiful computer-animated graphics and solid voice acting, you know you're in for a real treat. I just can't believe a show as good as this can be done. And why are people still watching Clifford?
