Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (8):

Hard-core animation fans will appreciate Skunk Fu's Flash animation efforts, and grade-schoolers will enjoy the silly slapstick and the show's not-too-trite concept -- mixing animals and martial arts -- which yields reasonably cute results. That said, the plots could use more substance, and the point of the story occasionally gets lost in the fast-paced action. The dialogue is riddled with snippy, sometimes downright mean comments, and the physical interaction between the characters can be off-putting and tiresome.

Some episodes do attempt to wrap everything up with a very simple, subtle moral to help little ones navigate through the world -- usually a lesson learned by Skunk during one of his adventures. It's too bad that the recurring negative behavior exhibited by some of the characters -- which isn't too far off the reality of how some grade-schoolers treat each other -- doesn't get addressed in the same way, to remind younger viewers that such behavior isn't OK in the real world.
