This is literally the worst cartoon on TV probably ever. It is so mindless and pointless. Even though children are fascinated by its super fast paced and really bright visuals & costumes ... it’s awful. There are overt references to spiritual practices like, spirit animals, conjuring up dragons, and other weird undertones that have nothing to do with them saving the world. Honestly I believe that this is a show that has been programmed to distract and zone out your child. You have to wonder every time you put it on and the child doesn’t move; stares straight at a screen for two hours- what is happening there? Then, you look at the Content and it is completely empty and devoid of educational material. If you watch it merely for enjoyment and you don’t feel educational material is important, your child is enjoying garbage. There are so many other shows that beat this one out... don’t waste your time!

The structure of this show is always the same every episode. One of the three main characters acts like a jerk the whole episode, and then they learn a lesson at the end. Unfortunately, young kids only see and repeat the bad behavior, and they miss the message at the end that you're supposed to apologize and try to be better. Whenever my kid watched this show, his behavior would be awful for the next couple weeks afterward because he would think it's okay to act like the characters. For kids under about 7 or so, I would highly recommend you skip this one and go for something wholesome like Puppy Dog Pals, where the characters treat each other nicely. Once they're a little older they understand this show is about what NOT to do.
