Parents say (1):
Kids say (15):

With all the fervor of the valiant swashbuckling hero Puss in Boots, Mao Mao brings his fearless determination to the sweet-natured and naïve population of his new home. Where they are accommodating to a fault, Mao Mao and oafish Badgerclops are the first and strongest line of defense between them and those who would do them harm. And thank goodness for that because without him, Pure Heart would be lost in a flash.

Besides being full of frantically paced fun, Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart reminds viewers that heroes come in all different shapes, sizes, and causes of motivation. Whether it's a destiny you're born into or -- as in the case of Mao Mao and Badgerclops -- one you crash into by accident, the point is to make the best of your situation and to use your gifts to help inspire others. Amid the show's hilarity and the characters' counterintuitive priorities, this is the message that will linger with kids after the show's end.
