Absolutely BRILLIANT!!!!
31 July 2008 | by GypsyofxanosSee all my reviews

Honestly, I love this show! I'll tell you why: It's one of the best children's shows on today. My five year old son is in love with it (has been for several years), and I am, too, because it's witty,fun and wonderful.

The puppetry is amazingly done and the movement is fluid and seamless. The set (digital and otherwise) is entirely charming. The songs are so catchy that I often find myself singing along, and even humming them as I work or clean. And the praise doesn't stop there.

It doesn't condescend to children (which I appreciate for two reasons. One, it doesn't drive me bonkers to see it on, and Two, I remember being that young. And even then, I found that sort of thing insulting. My son seems to feel the same way.) Also, no one on the show has a horribly annoying voice *cough* *Barney* *cough*, everyone brings something special to the table.

And it has a great list of messages. Equality, friendship, cleaning up, caring for natural resources, listening, problem solving and scientific inquiry, all in a way that's exciting (but not frustrating or over-complicated) to children, and still enjoyable for adults. And they have bits of audience participation here and there, but respectfully done.

The sloth (the star of the show) is a bit like a surfer/philosopher, and he's a nurturing soul. My favorite character of the lot, easily.

I think it's a great show with a lot to teach and entertain young and old, alike!
