Super 4 is a fun-filled action-adventure series inspired by the popular Playmobil toy brand. Vibrant CGI brings to life four delightfully disparate characters in Gene, Ruby, Twinkle, and Alex, who manage to prove time and again that there's great strength in the fact that they're so vastly different from each other. When the villains they face threaten to undo them, these four heroes put their heads together and concoct a plan to save the day, and when that doesn't work (as is typically the case), they go back to the drawing board. Often their failures are the result of one character or another's impulsivity, reminding youngsters of the value of cooperation and trusting your friends.

But Super 4 won't make fans only among its target demographic of kids. Parents who grew up playing with Playmobil toy sets will enjoy the show nearly as much, thanks to witty writing and the sense of nostalgia the cupped-hand characters foster. The show's multiple settings and themed characters make for some fun crossover plots in which pirates encounter dinosaurs and a medieval knight faces off with aliens. Of course, this also will help sell Playmobil merchandise, but as marketing entertainment goes, it's a fun one to watch.
