Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that there's nothing to worry about in this delightful cartoon about self-discovery and achievement. Kids will find the main character's struggles -- being teased by an older sibling, learning to use buckles and zippers, and so on -- familiar and relatable. The show provides nice examples of a loving family and steadfast friendship, and kids who watch will learn important lessons in self-confidence, patience, and more.

What's the story?

WILL & DEWITT follows the struggles faced by Will (voiced by Connor Price), who's in a hurry be a big kid but often stumbles over minor hurdles along the way. Good thing he can always count on his best buddy, Dewitt, an optimistic frog whose bubbly personality and shape-changing abilities keep Will hopping. No matter the problem, Dewitt is there with the means to the answer. In each episode, Will must conquer a typical childhood fear or challenge. In one segment, for example, he convinces his mom to buy him the same cool new boots his big brother has, but can't master their many zippers and buckles. In frustration, he tosses them aside and disappoints the eager, animated boots. But Will's tension turns to triumph when, with help from his brother and Dewitt, he finally masters the intricate footwear.

Is it any good?


Kids will easily relate to Will's quandaries and share his pride in his accomplishments and newfound self-confidence. Along the way, they'll also be reminded of the power of friendship and the importance of facing challenges head-on.

This enjoyable series also includes fun songs that relate to each episode's themes, reinforcing important lessons about self-discovery and personal belief. It's a great choice for older preschoolers and young grade-schoolers, who are likely facing many of the same woes Will encounters.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about facing challenges that seem daunting. Kids: How does Will work through problems? Who helps him? What similar challenges have you faced? How did you feel when you couldn't solve them? How long did it take you to figure it out? What did you learn from the process, and how did you feel when you were done?

This Show is Stupid

It is bad enough Nick & Nicktoons Network has relegated the finest classics to the "dead zone" of late night on weekends, but to put on a show that is so unwatchable on The CW4kids, it makes "The Mighty B!" look like "Super Duper Sumos", that's a cardinal offense! Wil & DeWitt is a pointless AND humorless show that makes no sense, as if the stoners from "See Spot Run" decided to make a cartoon just out of boredom. There is NOTHING funny (or Educational) about this show and the sooner the few "fans" of this trash realize it, the better. I hope that this show will get the help it truly needs, by getting canceled & never comming back!
