Great Lessons, Great Fun

This show is fun, educational, and has postive messages about not acting inviolence, respecting the elderly, and honsety, and not cheating,,nd hard work, secound chances, and many more. Family is a common theme, the kungg fu fighting is short and they never kill anyone, just send them to jail. A few episodes have breif G-rated bathroom talk, ( Like in "A Sight for Sore Eyes" Po without thinking Chao and Junjie that he is so excited he could pee. To every one's embarishment)

It's just a good as POM! Nice animation,ultra-catchy theme song,great adventure,ect.In fact,I was blown away by this show even BEFORE it premired! Because after I watched the premiere of the SB episode "Ghoul Fools",they showed an episode called "The Princess and The Po".I watched that episode,and it was SO GREAT!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7 ):
Kids say (19 ):

The much-loved warrior panda reprises his untraditional ways that simultaneously get under his cohorts' skin and somehow wind up saving the day time and time again. Po's uniqueness is what separates him from his peers and what raises this otherwise mediocre series to another level. He's a true underdog, and his nonconformist style serves a greater purpose than just comedy; it actually reminds viewers that it's OK to be different and that sometimes heroes come in the most unexpected packages.

Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness actually benefits from its 30-minute timeframe, since there's little time to make villains too scary and only minimal hand-to-hand combat. The brisk pace keeps the ball -- and the gags -- rolling, lightening the mood and downplaying the danger. The result is a kid-friendly show that packs some hearty messages about individuality, working as a team, and seeing past preconceptions.
