Magical theme is charming, spooky but OK for most kids.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Coming from the makers of Air Bud, this series has the plucky animal sidekicks and goofy villains that you might expect; what it lacks is the acting talent of Kevin Zegers. The acting here isn't amazing: The adults play for laughs in ways that are a little too hammy, and the talking animals could take a lesson from Ratatouille. Scaredy Cats does offer lots of spells, adventure, and girl power. A mystical found object with glowing cat eyes that connects a child to her lost parent? Great premise -- one that's definitely familiar -- and magic is consistently intriguing to elementary school kids.

Kids might not be concerned about the less-than-great acting. Adults will probably pass on this one. But it's not too scary, there are some charming moments, and we could all use a little magic in our lives.
