Eh...

This show is ok. There are elements that kinda work. The time-travel is interesting and there is some interesting facts for kids to learn. Some of the stories are good.

The animation is so terrible that it actually confused me as a kid. A lot of obvious animation shortcuts were taken. This show either had a low budget, a lazy animation team, or both. There are a lot of elements that don't work. The characters and stories are extremely watered down. I know that this show is for kids, but there could be a little more depth. Each of the main characters has one little gimmick (most of them have it in their name) and they don't really go to far with them except when they want to teach some kind of lesson. Except for when its trying to be educational, this show is mostly filler. If the animation team had enough money and talent to create actual sets, and if the story was more focused on learning and character development, then it probably would've been much better.
