I'm thirteen years old. I'm at the age to be watching TeenNick and all its sitcoms - iCarly, Degrassi, Big Time Rush, and What I like about you. And yet, I choose to watch a cartoon aimed for children 6-8. Why?
For one thing, WordGirl is much, much more engrossing than other children's cartoons. It doesn't "talk down" to kids, the information learned is actually something they'll use, the animation is adorable, and plus, it has HUMOR. Actual HUMOR. I find myself laughing at most of the jokes on the show. And there are some jokes that only "the older crowd" would get.
Also, you know a children's show is good when even L can learn something from it. I learned the words "lackadaisical", "dote", and "curmudgeon", just to name a few.
My siblings and I all look forward to 4:30 every weekday when WordGirl comes on around here. Every one of us enjoy WordGirl.
Also, for a person with my personality, this cartoon is a haven simply because it has so much room for backstories! I'm the type of person who writes fanfiction and is always over-analyzing. I love WordGirl because I can find lots of backstory room, e.g. how WordGirl came to earth, the history of Lexicon, etcetera etcetera.
Oh yes, and I love the shipping possibilities. The silly, grade school crushes are one of the highlights of the show. I adore pairing wordGirl with my favorite character, the evil boy genius, Tobey B-)
