It’s a bit on the silly side and there’s no talking but it’s not inappropriate

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

Visually charming and surprisingly engaging for a show without dialogue, these energetic stories are a fun and innocuous pick for tweens. The Qumi-Qumi world is one of limitless possibilities, where magic and imagination inspire the most bizarre and hilarious experiences for these three friends. Some challenge their friendship, others cause them to solve a conundrum, and still others are merely opportunities to discover something new about their world.

The lack of recognizable language is distracting at first, but astute viewers (tweens and grown-ups alike) quickly will start to understand the cadence of the gibberish and the occasional recognizable word or phrase. What's most striking is how insignificant this exemption is from Qumi-Qumi's overall appeal since the show does such a good job of crafting interesting stories with effective body language, animation, and physical humor in place of traditional dialogue.
