Alien journalists report on Earth; some slapstick violence.

Harmless and hilarious

It’s hilarious. And pretty harmless if you’re okay with potty humor. We love it and watch as a family.

Silly and funny

With all of the problema we find in the media today it is refreshing to see a show that's just fun and not preachy. My little one loves it the most and even have learned some of the pretend words of the aliens, Wich helped him understand some concepts. (To say "above" or "up" he uses Ixbee's "apweema" which eventually he settled "peema"). He's learning Portuguese and English at the same time and a little bit of Alien too! The only problem is, in some scenes, the aliens spit food, which he imitated in some instances and that created a problem. But I'll never deny when he asks for "Meep Meep Meep" on TV!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (2 ):

The premise of this series is a good one, but seeing the same gag played out over and over (with the alien journalists exploring three different parts of Earth life in each episode) gets tiresome quickly. It's fun seeing the realistically animated aliens exploring real-life human settings, but the storylines don't match the cleverness of this conceit. Also, Ixbee, Pixbee, and Squee are frequently getting injured as their explorations go awry. It's a lot of slapstick cartoon silliness (like falling down a manhole, or getting slingshot into the air by a hammock). The characters do show pain on their faces sometimes, and sometimes the aliens set each other up to be in dangerous situations for comedic effect. The aliens are very curious about the world around them, but they don't have many redeeming qualities beyond their curiosity.
