I'd rather watch Bordertown than this critical and commercial failure

Same jokes we have heard before, same attempt to be "edgy" with child abuse, same attempt to child-like animation style that falls flat and same preachy hollywood message. This show was as funny as overflowing colostomy bag. There is nothing new here, just more rich people complaining how unfair things are while collecting a nice fat paycheck. Congratulations Amy you managed to beat ChalkZone special as the worst Tom Kenny free Nicktoon.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Omg I loved this

Others may find this cringy but I find it great at least it's not fairly oddparents or tuff puppy

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (41 ):

It's pretty unlikely that any show with Saturday Night Live funny lady Poehler on board not just as a star but also a co-creator wouldn't garner chuckles from its audience, and young tweens will likely enjoy Bessie's outlandish, fantasy-fueled adventures -- which are fast-paced and, on the surface, entertaining.

But Bessie is fairly one-dimensional; her single-minded devotion to badge acquisition (which she often pursues by pestering both adults and her peers to get her way) means that her social skills suffer. Plus, the show maintains a chaotic pace, and there are no real attempts to teach strong positive lessons. While Bessie's dedication to her goal could theoretically be considered admirable, the show makes light of her disregard for her adoring younger brother's feelings and her lack of real friends (in favor of an imaginary pal she draws on her finger and her reluctant dog sidekick). You have to wonder -- are those the makings of a truly mighty hero?
