User Reviews

One of the best kids show around.
16 July 2001 | by stevel-8See all my reviews

A kids program that portrays life as seen by a prepubescent male: burps are a form of communication, it isn't necessary for your room to be spotless( in fact in can be down right dirty). It is the world as young males see it and to some extent the way they wish the world would be. Many people may not understand this show, but a show doesn't have to appeal to everyone to be good.
