Very surprising..., 15 March 2010
Author: jaholmes6502 from United States

Very surprising to see so little love here for The Koala Brothers. As of this review, it's been rated only 23 times and has a combined rating of... 3.7/10?! I don't get it. Unfortunately, as this seems to be the first review here on IMDb, I have nothing to go on for why anybody would dislike The Koala Brothers. Anybody? Anybody?

Well... I like it. It's one of my favorite children's programs, in fact. The characters are fun and likable, the stories are accessible, and the animation is really top-notch. There are no "bad guys" with absurd motives, no over-sexed teenie caricatures, no scatological humor, and no stiff, second-rate CG. It's truly one of the few programs I would say is suitable for children of any age.
