This Jell-O Play production is a thinly veiled marketing tool for the food company's line of play-at-home gelatin kits for kids and families, but it's also a surprisingly sweet series with worthwhile takeaways. The characters in Jell-O Wobz are very relatable in how different and mismatched they seem to be within their group. From prim Nigel to nervous Walter, each character is typecast to a dominant trait that dictates how they respond to various situations. While it makes the stories fairly predictable after you've watched a handful or so, it also breeds much humor in their interactions with each other and emphasizes the show's themes of embracing imperfection, respecting differences, and being comfortable in your own skin, er, gelatin.
