Let's All Go To Gullah Gullah Island
27 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Allegra's Window, Gullah Gullah Island, and Little Bear are the three original Nick Jr shows and since I've already reviewed Little Bear and Allegra's Window, so it only made sense to review Gullah Gullah Island as well. While I loved this show and Allegra's Window as a small child, I had forgotten about both for a long time before recently rediscovering them via YouTube, another reason to review it after reviewing Allegra's Window. The show stars an African- American family living on a fun-filled island off the coast of South Carolina along with all their friends and neighbours. Just for the record, I know absolutely nothing about the Gullah culture but revisiting this nice show has my curiosity pique. I remember especially liking Binyah Binyah and Abuelito. The parents are so sweet and loving, the kids so positive and fun, Abuelito is a total sweetheart, and who could resist Binyah Binyah Polliwog? A perfect 10/10.
