Jakers!
20 July 2007 | by dwyamamotoSee all my reviews

I discovered this show because we adopted a little boy (now 2 1/2) and of course, I started watching children's TV. This is by far the best children's show I have seen (possibly because it is not just a children's show), and I often watch it whether my son is watching it or not. The landscapes are beautiful, and the characters are amazing. I like them all. Piggly, of course, but also Ferny, Molly, Dannan, Hector, Mr. Hornsby, and Don Toro, the blacksmith. It brings me back to a simpler time, when kids (like when I was growing up) didn't have so many toys, and we had to use our imagination much more for our everyday adventures. I haven't seen many new episodes, and wonder how much time it takes to do a new show.
