Misconceptions?

I'm a kid from the 90's who has enjoyed this show, despite plot holes. I feel the show displays good morals with a powerful resolution that can reflect on our lives. For example the episode where Mike introduces money to the island only to see how it caused distress and anxiety to the locals. Or how og's gaming addiction had became harmful to the point that he was unaware the island was flooding. As for the comments about the creators generalising race, well the inhabitants were and in some cases still are British, and I feel it does not resemble islanders, instead a small mix of English and improvised culture that would understandably come from a few generations of living in isolation. Being from a non-US country myself I had always known cartoons are never meant to accurately reflect any culture, it was there for entertainment purposes, most kids can distinguish stereo types and reality for themselves.

I could care less

in the 90s this was a short lived cartoon network show that was the least successful of the cartoon cartoons and the only to not win an award, it was boring and not entertaing I also thought the animation was bad and the characters annoyed me
