Take away the m in Cramp

Lucien is Likeable and Wynn is annoying, the animation is bad, and looks cheap some characters had yellow, purple and green skin and the show was pretty boring
What other families should know
Too much violence

Actually, I liked the show because I thought that it presented "real life" more than most cartoons. Wayne calling Lucien effeminate names is very realistic, since my friends and I called us these names at school. There were no fantasy elements, just people with varied personalities, which many people can relate to. The show presented affairs pertaining to the real world, such as the harming of the environment and Lucien's role regarding this. I also saw Lucien representing children who favoured intelligence and interests that other kids wouldn't pursue; in this, it is quite educational because children can learn about other things such as nature and the environment from someone their age. They also realise that other children are different and not all will think the same. With Lucien’s likeability, they learn to tolerate different people. In fact, the hostility that the Soap folk have towards the Swamp people may bring out the moral of tolerating different cultures. This parallels our world when we are educating our children to respect each other regardless of our race. This cartoon has been criticised too harshly over the years, and it is time to discover its positive side. It is a show that examines many personalities, from the spoilt to the geeky, acknowledges that people are harming the natural world (Global Warming is a very pivotal theme these days) and makes kids engage with a world that is based on our real world. It may have its flaws and the show isn't perfect, but I loved the show when I was young because this animation presented easily identifiable characters through an interesting surreal world that promotes morals. This means The Cramp Twins can educate as well as entertain.
