This show is a disaster and a big mess

For starters I’m not the one to judge and be rude to anyone who likes this show as I think it’s pathetic and sad that people actually give acclaim to this garbage. This show isn’t necessarily boring but is the correct example of being a complete utter waste of time and crap for kids or anyone of any age watching this. Let me state why. First off, this show is like a feminine version of spongebob with GNC characters. The boy pets in this show act really weird it makes me cringe and have some potty humor indicated whenever they talk sometimes. The girl characters are also stuck up spoilt brats and are often condescending and all the pets never seem to really learn from their mistakes and keep finding faults in each other. The pets’ bickering and arguing takes up 99.9% of the time-slot per episode. The male characters tend to act inappropriate amongst the girl pets touching them grabbing them, giving little kids the wrong idea. And the girl pets as well, vice versa. Also numerous times you hear what the “heck”, or what the-, and dating and crushes and mean girl stereotypes are in this show but are just being used in the SAME way with a slightly different boring and dragging on plot for each episode that seems too absurd to be true. This show is just a bunch of mush mash mixed with forgettable songs and nonsense it’s absolutely atrocious. The pets are horrible role models and when they do apologize to one another it’s mutual like “oh I love you guys”, but it’s so outrageously dumb cause they quarrel again in the next episode. It’s like THEYRE TRYING TO MAKE ME HATE THIS degrading excuse of a show. The characters seem to want to find a problem just to have a conflict like it’s torture for themselves jokes on them. It’s so stupid and sad how people praise this show. Thank god it’s over. If you want to check out shows for your child with good role models there are so many better choices than this crap.

Adorable show!

I showed this to my young daughters and they love this show! It's very cute and has good lessons such as friendship. I watched a couple of episodes and they're all innocent and cute.
