Not Recommended

The first episode makes a terrible impression. Definitely not appropriate for the 8+ rating that I see on here. It talks about puberty right off in the first scene with mixed genders. The mom is trying to talk to her about puberty at her birthday party and in front of boys. She has these saggy breasts that fall over her pants! The creatures in her make believe land are either androgynous or super strange amorphous blobs. The villain appears to be a large breasted woman with a man's voice. I have no watched enough to see any of the touching messages some others have written are in here. My 10 year old likes it, but I'm not thrilled with her watching it. It looks like an adult swim cartoon to me.

Show aimed at preteen girls

My son was trying to watch this show. It was not good. Pretty weird. The first episode - the mom (with big saggy boobs) gives the daughter (for her b-day) a pink lacy bra, a razor and shaving cream, deodorant etc. It was stupid. Then later in the show, the mom gives the girl books on becoming a woman and the friend (boy) starts reading them out loud, talking about “fertile lining”, menstrual cramps, becoming a woman etc etc... it was way too much for an 8 year old boy in my opinion. There should be more of a warning that this is like a coming of age cartoon for girls of that age. Ridiculous.
