Disturbing and Grotesque

Many years ago an assistant of mine recommended me to show an episode to my class to teach them "Social Skills", and I did just that. Before the Theme Song even finished a student already began crying because the characters looked "Scary Scary". The actual episode was much worse. The little girl, Franny, lived alone in a tiny wooden house with an Old Man who made shoes and made her try them on which sent her on an Adventure somewhere. We didn't get far with the episode though, as soon the other students began Screaming or Covering their eyes and told me to turn it off, and I did. This show has several major issues. First off the main character has an unhealthy obsession with shoes and feet. Second, and this is the Elephant in the room, The animation and art style is too Nasty and Grotesque, like it looks more like something in an Adult Program. Even Ren & Stimpy was tamer than this. Don't waste your time with this Garbage, as it only exists to Scare Children.

This title has:

Too much violence

horrible parenting do not let your kids see this

I am a proud father of 4 boys. And 1 of my boys was crying and still is. A other 1 of my boys was crying and still is. My 3rd boy was crying and still is and the last son was crying and still is.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (12 ):

This show offers kids wonderful storytelling and encourages cultural awareness, emotional expression, recycling, and experiencing new things. As Franny would say, Franny's Feet is a "fran-tastic" choice for kid TV.
