Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

With efficient storytelling and no-frills animation, this educational comedy series wins mostly on worthwhile content and is sure to please both kids and parents. The learning quotient isn't great, given that an episode runs five to six minutes in length, but it's enough to deliver a decent overview of the timeframe and significant events and possibly to pique viewers' curiosity for more concentrated fact-getting on their own. It's also a humorous and engaging watch, thanks mostly to the delightful professor and his exuberance for all things learning. In a TV culture that often seems to reward the excessive, The Amazing Professor Ambrosius' Mansion is a quiet contender for different reasons. It's the kind of show kids and parents can watch together and be equally entertained, and it does its job and moves on rather than languishing in monotonous plots. Also impressive is how the series avoids the common trap of repetition of style, changing up its format from one episode to the next. It serves viewers well with fun characters who illustrate the importance of being curious and open to learning new things.
