Toy Driven Cash Grab

Poorly animated and scripted. Characters are annoying. The voice acting is very poorly done and sounds wooden. It seems to be a huge commercial for the over priced dolls. It tries to teach good moral values but ends up doing the exact opposite.

Is It Any Good?

Middle school issues get the star treatment in a show created by Black writers, actors, and producers, who've drawn from their own experiences. Heartfelt, complex issues that tweens face are artfully faced in Karma's World. In one touching episode, Karma's friends from different backgrounds touch her hair and ask why she doesn't have "normal" hair. After they leave, Karma's mother sits her down and speaks to her in a realistic, powerful way that will touch kids from all walks of life.

This series is full of empowering moments, which parents will appreciate. The message doesn't get in the way of the plot, however; it's blended with the action and movement of the characters' lives. Ultimately, this show does what the best shows do -- it uses art to inspire, empower, and elevate through storytelling. An excellent choice for young tweens.
