Who needs the fourth wall?

This is probably one of the cleverest children's shows that I have ever watched (so far). All the characters are interesting, and the jokes always land. The plots are silly, but they work. My only complaint is the thing where they have to teach children words, but even that is funny most of the time. This show takes superhero tropes and just runs with them in the funniest ways possible. Though the same group of villains show up time and time again, they always manage to be funny and original.

I would highly recommend watching this show.
