Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Dynamic, creative, sometimes funny, this remake of a classic cartoon has big shoes to fill. Sometimes the gags feel new, sometimes they feel a little obvious. But there's never a dull moment in Yabba Dabba Dinosaurs.

Kids who've never seen the classic cartoon will laugh at the stone age gizmos that have tweaks to allow them to run on pulleys or animal power. Adults might not be as charmed, the gags can feel a little too obvious. Plus, there's always the fan base who is going to wish this show was perfect. It's not-- but it's fun. And there are some moments where morals are seamlessly intertwined in the theme. It's like taking vitamins that taste like candy, and if you grew up watching the original show, you'll know what this means.
