When I 1st saw the commercial for this show, I was thinking cheesy name, cheesy plot, another Disney/family channel dud they produce these days, but then I decided to watch the premiere, just to see, give it a chance and I was surprised. I don't know why, but it just drew me in, it was strangely mystifying and no matter how totally not normal it was, it felt... real. The filming style wasn't like an ordinary show, it was more like a real setting, but not in a bad way, it adds to its character, and then the kids themselves, they're... real... I don't know how else to describe it, they're not the annoying obnoxious stupid kids from most family channel shows, they're clever, they're curious, they act like they are kids growing up in this strange world and learning to deal with different struggles in a spooky yet fun, almost enchanting way. They're genuine characters with genuine personalities and are easier to relate to, yet they still give that air of humour just not over the top. The only way to know what I mean is to watch it for yourself, I can't describe the feeling it gives me, but it makes you think. It's fun, their are interesting situations that are magical, but not crazy overwhelming, it's a spark of childhood magic, I guess. The show also showcases stories in a variety of different animations and it's interesting to see the different styles in each episode, but also the music, I love the music. It's so slow, calm, catchy, spooky, enchanting. Watch this show and I think you'll see what I mean, I don't think you'll regret it, and if you do, 22 minutes isn't that long... but they still manage to fit in a story that feels like it should be a movie.
