Storyline

"Mighty B," picked up for 20 episodes, stars Amy Poehler as the voice of Bessie Higgenbottom, the world's most ambitious and lovably unhinged 10-year-old "Honeybee" scout. As a member of the Honeybees, Bessie wears her uniform every single day, leads her troop with a zeal General Patton would have admired and has earned more Bee Badges than any Honeybee in history. But a bunch of badges still elude her, and Bessie's not stopping until she has every last one. Written by Nicole Parker, Joanna Roses

Smack!
17 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remember the last time you were stuck on an airplane and the annoying brat in the next row kept wiggling, squirming, talking and kicking the seat for the whole flight? Bessie is that kid. She is a hyper little geekwad with a painfully abrasive voice, and is so irritating that this show just isn't fun to watch. What's more, the show lacks the multidimensional humor that would make it amusing for adults as well as children. Instead, there are potty jokes; racial, class, religious and regional stereotypes; and the central joke of Bessie's completely nonexistent social skills. It's hard to connect to Bessie or feel anything about her except the desire for her to shut up! The animation is OK in a '90's Ren and Stimpy-ish way but like the rest of the show, it seems they made it intentionally frenetic just to cover up the lack of anything genuinely interesting. Nick has canned better toons without giving them time to develop. I hope they consign this stinker to the bottom of the bin and use the resources for something decent.
