User Reviews

One of the best shows ever from Disney.
28 November 2002 | by dootussSee all my reviews

This is one of the greatest T.V. shows that Disney has ever made. The characters are unique, and have their own personalities, and the episodes are very creative, which I think is the main reason why this show is so cool. I also like this show since the characters can relate to us if you are, or were once a kid. Truly, an enjoyable half hour of animated bliss.

This gets a 10/10.
