A good premise, but tedious characters -- kids OK.

I miss this cartoon!

To be honest, I think this was the greatest and only best cartoon to watch on Disney Channel! Mr. Whiskers was so funny and the animation is great! They never show re-runs of this on TV. I wish they did! And yeah, Common Sense, the show plays the same joke, but that is what made it funny! And just to let you know, parents, that Brandy might be a better role model for your kids than Mr. Whiskers, because whatever he does is mainly for laughs.

This show was amazing! It had great animation and great voice acting! It should've never gotten canceled.The show that should've been canceled is Austin & Ally (which must die!)

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (17 ):

Despite all of the opportunity for interesting adventures provided by the colorful Amazon setting, Brandy and Mr. Whiskers plays on the same joke -- she's a snob, and he's a hapless sidekick. The story has been done before and with much more success.
