Not even exaggerating when I say this may literally be the best show on TV atm
10 November 2019 | by thereseuphemiaabernathySee all my reviews

I found this on Universal Kids and thought, "A Pug cartoon? Is this their answer to Puppy Dog Pals?" (Yes, I'm an adult who can't quit skipping between that channel and Disney Junior.) I quickly came to realize that no, it's much more than that, and also to question whether I was just dreaming because the show seemed so tailored to me.

Each half-hour episode consists of three segments depicting the wacky hijinks of Mike the Pug, his family's kitten and turtle trio, the neighbors' beautiful dog Iris, and two ceaselessly antagonistic raccoons named Freddy and Mercury. It's charming, clever, creative, classic, cartoonish physical comedy that's highly enjoyable by all ages--in the vein of things like Wallace and Gromit, Looney Tunes, etc. There's minimal dialog, and as with the baby Muppets' and Looney Tunes' nannies, we don't see the humans' faces.

The show is also visually gorgeous. It's set in Mike's home and backyard, which must be in the southwestern US. The art style and animation are almost photorealistic, nearly on par with Pixar, better than most Dreamworks/Blue Sky/Sony-caliber animated films...what I'm getting at is, it's astonishing to see on TV. I've always greatly preferred greater realism, and boy does this have it. The setting and characters are fully believable. The house and patio/pool are so enviably well-designed and detailed they look like a home-plan simulation. I hate the extremely cartoony, blobby, doodle-ish style that I think started around Adventure Time and now seems to be used by nearly every television animator. To find this kind of non-Flash CGI in a series was a pretty mind-blowing breath of fresh air.

And Mighty Mike is only my favorite of the toons I've begun watching regularly. Norman Picklestripes, also on UK? Adorable woodland-critter stop-motion in a cozy setting with cute stories and songs, lovable characters, and good messages. Another must-watch for all ages. Wholesome without getting saccharine. I'm especially fond of Blanche the pink bunny I'd also recommend the Australian "Bluey" on Disney, about a family of red and blue heelers (Australian Cattle Dogs.) It's extremely stylized but cute, reminding me somewhat of Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! Disney's T.O.T.S. has great everything too--characters, designs, visuals, music, story, etc. Gotta love Freddy the flamingo in particular. I've also been most enjoying the aforementioned Puppy Dog Pals (I'm fond of Hissy & Cupcake, the purple cat & dog), Mickey & the Roadster Racers (certainly no masterpiece but more mature and interesting than Clubhouse), and The Lion Guard (significantly flawed but overall has done an excellent job of working with Simba's Pride and has many wonderful characters and episodes.) UK's "Masha and the Bear" is another sporting stunning animation and realistic designs (the bear's home basically defines "cozy.") Pup Academy on Disney is Air Bud-style live-action that, so far, isn't among the best talking-dog productions I've seen. But at least it's talking dogs.

Mighty Mike absolutely deserves to catch on and become a known favorite. I could even see it expanding without losing its unique, delightful charms. My favorite character is definitely Iris; she's awesome. Of course the wannabe-dashing Mike is constantly attempting to impress and woo her. She's obviously a Chinese Crested (although her coating of short fur suggests her having been born somewhere between the hairless & powderpuff varieties, or possibly having trace amounts of something else such as Italian Greyhound.) In any event the message is clear: Watch. This. Show.
