Life with Louie , {Saturday morning on hold}
6 March 2005 | by j-hall890See all my reviews

Life with Louie ,this cartoon had the lot ,it made me laugh and sometimes it made me feel sad .Every Saturday morning I would put everything off, until I had seen this little round kid tell the world, in his latest episode, about the problems he faced growing up . The reason I found it so good to watch , was because it was about real people with real problems , but I still found it funny ,in fact I have never laughed so much at a cartoon . I think everybody who loved the cartoon could relate to a certain character or episode where they could see a little bit of themselves's in the show .There was I think thirty seven episodes ,and everyone of those thirty seven shows was packed full of humour,I am looking forward to the day when I can sit with my children and watch this great cartoon again . If you ever get the chance {and its been seven years ,since the last showing in England}watch it .Im now waiting for a second showing, I wont miss out a second time , and then once again ,I can put my Saturday mornings on hold .
