Cute and silly

It's just a cute little kids show. Nothing wrong with it that I have ever seen. Also alot of the episodes are silly but it is a good little show about a yellow cat thing named Wubbzy who loves to play and the misadventures he has with his friends Walden the bear looking thing that loves books and Widjet the genius rabbit girl who likes to invent stuff. The show is animated simply and brightly but not lazy as some reviews claim (I have seen alot lazier than this one with much newer shows). And it is for little kids but it is hit or miss with older kids and adults. As for the one kid who mentioned the "rodent thing", he says "kooky" not "cooookie" which is a synonym for weird or silly which fits the shows entire premise. And being a weird and silly show isn't a bad thing as it's not overly hyper. Also the Wubbzy is supposed to be a small child animal so of COURSE he is going to do stupid things. Everyone makes mistakes in real life and I personally think that cartoons that have characters who "mess up" but "learn a lesson and make it right" instead of the usual "Mary Sue" characters that are "perfect" are better in the long run because the reality is that "Mary Sue" characters are just flat and one dimensional. My only complaint is that Wubbzy looks like a cross between Tigger and Winnie the Pooh and also acts like it (but that's also a good thing too lol).

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (21 ):
Kids say (55 ):

Although the series' animation is unremarkable -- the colors and depth pale in comparison to many other popular preschooler cartoons, such as Noggin's The Backyardigans -- the storylines are simple, engaging, and funny, and the characters are cute and energetic. Unfortunately, it's likely that some young viewers will be bored by the flat visuals, but hopefully they'll watch long enough to absorb the show's positive messages.
