A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
A mixed bag. On one hand, viewers see that Tiggy and Gweeseek's friendship helps them form a successful team that specializes in helping others find the things they've lost through curiosity and inventiveness. On the other, morally complicated scenarios don't have swift resolutions at times and can see the characters making questionable decisions before finally arriving at the right thing to do.
Positive Role Models
Tiggy is thoughtful and full of big ideas, and he never gives up on a challenge. He's willing to learn -- even if it's the hard way -- and always gets around to making a good decision, even if it's a slow process. Gweeseek impresses with her creative inventions that solve the problems that confound Tiggy. Some adult characters come across as unassertive, deferring to Tiggy for insight and ideas rather than taking initiative themselves.
Violence & Scariness
Rarely mention of violent subjects like the electric chair as a repercussion for crime.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tig N' Seek is an animated series about a boy and his cat sidekick who spend their days finding lost things and solving other little problems that arise in their town. Even though it's a cartoon, the show is geared more toward tweens than it is meant for kids, as the characters sometimes find themselves in situations that have some moral complexity or other complication to them. Tiggy and Gweeseek's friendship sees them through every challenge, and Gweeseek's quiet confidence and cleverness helps overcome his friend's occasional fits of anxiety. These stories aren't meant to impart any wisdom on viewers, but they do show the characters overcoming challenges thoughtfully and creatively in order to help serve their community.
Is It Any Good?
This cartoon is a bit of an oddity and thus an acquired (or not so acquired) taste. Tiggy is not your normal 8-year old; he sports a tie and pompadour-mohawk blend haircut. He also talks like an adult, which Tig N' Seek seems to assume explains why he spends his days doing a grown-up job rather than going to school. His trusty sidekick is almost more interesting than he is, being a cat with normal cat tendencies but also a whip-smart inventor whose creations usually help the duo eek out a win of some sort.
Tig N' Seek's quirky characters and comical scenarios are fun but sometimes necessitate a slightly more mature awareness than that of a typical cartoon viewer. Tiggy's problems aren't always solved on the first try, and he has some insecurities that manifest in varying ways, which will be more confusing than anything else for kids who try to watch. The flipside, though, is that the show is a fairly easy one to watch with your tweens because it doesn't assume its audience is predominantly younger kids and therefore delivers a more substantial storyline than many other cartoons do.
