Did we miss something on diversity?

age 8+

Where do I start?

The animation and the artstyle is so cute and interesting (in some episodes they change the style a little bit). The characters are amazing and their differences make them even more amazing. For example: Oscar is more innocent and anxious about new things and places (in the first episode he tries to escape the island but he decided to stay at the island with hedgehog). Meanwhile hedgehog is more mature and adventurous. besides their personalities and differences, they both are best friends and inseparable (even if some of them mess up some things). Besides from oscar and hedgehog, other main characters are good to mention is Max: a fun-loving camper who likes to hangout with Oscar and hedgehog (they met for the first time at the island). Pepper: a camper who likes to take naps in every place, he carries a security blanket around, and without him, he becomes insecure about things, overall he is a innocent kid. Alexa: a athletic and active camper, she likes to sport. Lem: is the younger sister of Alexa and one of the youngest of the camp. Lucy: a smart camper who is good at math and calculus (and she likes horses). Oliver: a musical inclined camper who loves instruments, mostly a small piano he carries around the camp. Last but not least, the witches (and also the counselors of the camp). Susie: a bossy, arrogant and head counselor of the camp, she likes to imply with other campers, especially oscar. Alice: is the most powerful witch between the three, and she likes to turns object (and even people) cutesy with her magic. Betsy: Unlike Susie and Alice, she's is the most kindest and the nice, but she is the least powerful. (Honorable mentions: the monsters (Ava, Blanche, Freddie, Howard, Margot, Melvin and Mortimer) aliens (especially Puddle and the king), the moon and everything that have a face). The episodes is relaxing and chill to watch and yet they are complex and intriguing to keeps things even more interesting. The plot of the campers outside of the camp is awesome (E.G: hedgehog's father trying to control her life). The theme song is so relaxing and very welcoming. Overall a good series to watch, I really really really really really really recommend you to watch, thank you Julia. P.S: I'm really excited for the next episodes :)
