Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Gigglebiz is a lively British children's sketch comedy series that features lots of fun characters and slapstick-type skits, as well as kids themselves telling jokes. It stars Shaun The Sheep's Justin Fletcher playing a variety of characters from Captain Adorable, who tries (often unsuccessfully) to help the people of Wiggyville, to folks like crazy scientist Professor Muddles, clumsy weather presenter Gail Force, and Keith Fitt, a fitness instructor with no skills. Some stateside viewers may have a difficult time understanding some of the accents, but most of what is featured can be easily understood and enjoyed by preschoolers.
Is It Any Good?
This energetic variety series offers up some very British fun by combining a range of local accents, regional personalities, and slapstick humor. While featured skits do not contain fully-developed educational lessons, the show offers some teachable moments within the parodies. But while stateside adults will appreciate Justin Fletcher's talent while playing no fewer than 35 characters throughout the series, younger children unfamiliar with British accents may have a hard time understanding some of what is being said. Nonetheless, most of what Gigglebiz offers can be universally understood, and will certainly elicit some giggles from young viewers.
Did we miss something on diversity?
