Great for all the family

This is a great cartoon. The stories touch on things we all go through at some point in our life, young and old. Tip is sassy, cute with attitude. Her mum is a single mum and she’s great, there’s is no particular gender, the boovs are boy boy, girl boy etc it’s great. Sometimes Tip doesn’t do things right, but she learns a valuable lesson in the end. Not every child is born the same, whether it’s academically or otherwise, people need to remember this. So Tip isn’t stupid, or slow she is a little girl who is growing up with her emotions and learning things in her own way and at her own pace. Don’t listen to one negative review, the other reviews love this show and it’s definitely worth your time. It’s bright, colourful and full of love and we need more of this in this world. It’s amazing, my son loves it and so do I. Family, friendship, forgiving and being there no matter what is just some of the stories in this lovely cartoon series. Watch it you’ll love it xx

Our review:
Parents say (11):
Kids say (7):

This music-heavy show lags a bit behind its parent movie in visual vigor, but that doesn't detract from the sweet intergalactic friendship at the story's heart. If Oh's wide-eyed wonder for human ways (not to mention his adorably loose grasp on the English language) was one of your favorite aspects of Home, then you won't be disappointed here. As he experiences the human world as an insider and learns valuable lessons that conflict with his Boov upbringing (kitty litter isn't a snack, for instance), Tip is always there to help him sort it all out.

Whereas Home showed Oh trying to reconcile the solitary life he'd always known with the human emotions that resonated with him, Adventures with Tip and Oh focuses more on the sense of family he's now experiencing firsthand. There are lots of funny moments, and Oh's adventures give a unique perspective on some human customs we don't think about much, but there's also a strong focus on families of all shapes and sizes that's truly heartwarming.
