The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Luna Petunia is filled with fun, adventure, friendship, the power of positive thinking, and lots of pink and glitter. While boys may like the show, and there are male characters that all kids will enjoy, it's clearly geared toward girls and all things deemed "girly." The "Cirque du Soleil" part of the first season's title implies that there may be acrobatics in the show, but there aren't any. Luna focuses her energies on "making the impossible possible," but that relates to her problem-solving rather than fantastic tricks. The fourth season has a new name; Luna Petunia: Return to Amazia.

What's the story?
When LUNA PETUNIA discovers the magical land of Amazia, she finds herself having all kinds of adventures. As she explores the world and meets friends who happen to be robots, koalas, and toys, Luna also learns how to think positively to achieve her goals. While having "Cirque du Soleil in the title leads one to believe that the show involves flipping, flying, and incredible acrobats, Luna Petunia is more about incredible adventures and believing in yourself.
Is it any good?
This colorful show keeps viewers entertained as Luna and her friends (a robot, a koala bear, and an interesting toy creature) work together to make things happen. They can do anything, from pulling up rainbows to making flying food to finding lost duck-like creatures.
