This teaches horrible lessons

I watched a few shows, and they were redefining terms. Everyone was a hero. The mail main, the pizza guy were all heros. To quote the bad guy in Incredibles, when everyone is a hero, no one will be. Part of the post modern/relitivism garbage.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (11 ):

Preschoolers will enjoy the colorful visuals and characters of Higglytown Heroes. Parents can appreciate that the show has positive role models and messages. Characters have real-life qualities and situations -- for example, Wayne and Twinkle are of color and appear to have a single mother. Eubie is being raised by his Aunt Millie and Uncle Zooter. The message? There are all different makeups of loving, happy families.

For younger preschoolers, it is a wonderful show to celebrate everyday people and what they do to make giant contributions to their world. It helps kids learn to face their problems, work with a team, and know that it's okay to ask for help.
