The best cartoon on TV.
28 January 2003 | by moon_riverSee all my reviews

This cartoon relies on cuteness, intuitive humor, and pretty good animation; and it does quite well.

While it may not be the most exciting, action-packed thing out there, it gets a smile and a laugh more than three times from myself and anyone else who is around watching it with me. If you sit around and watch mindless cartoons all day, like most of the stuff on Nickelodeon and the major networks, then you probably will not like this show. Because it does not rely on gross-out humor, stupid jokes, or idiotic-looking characters, I find it quite clever.

It *does* happen to be geared towards a younger audience -- what cartoon with little animals isn't? It's refreshing in the fact that it's innocent, much better than practically anything on TV today that's smothered with innuendo or lack of intelligence.

There's a wide variety of characters, and the animation is excellent compared to most of the drab and repetitive stuff I usually come across ('Sabrina the Animated Series' or 'DBZ'). It doesn't seem to skip details and effects are well done. Plus, there are plenty of good voice actors to round out the crew -- Ted Cole especially, in my opinion. The dubbing is well-done, and that's coming from me -- I HATE dubbed anime. While Hamtaro's voice does grate occasionally, it suits his character.

If you just want to watch a nice, clean, decent show that doesn't depend on stupidity for humor... watch this.

*4/5*

PS: You may get more of a kick out of it if you own a hamster.
