Exciting and fun

My daughter and I really enjoyed this series. Fun group comes together to defend a hidden land. Lots of adventure, teamwork and excitement.

A Western with slugs

This show is a lot better than most on Disney XD. It has interesting characters (the villains do have questionable names though), an intriguing setting, and simple but fun plotlines. Slugterra is kind of like a Western because there's gun/slug slinging, mecha beast like steads, a sheriff character, classic villains, and a rustic environment. I'd say this show is refreshing and good for children 7+.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much consumerism
