So I watched the first couple of episodes. They are actually pretty short, like 14 minutes each and over 3 minutes of those are credits. Obviously it's here to evoke feelings of old cartoon shorts and I think it accomplishes that pretty well. Animation is smooth and vibrant and even has some fake film grain on it like old cartoons. It's animated by Lighthouse Studios out of Ireland. They've done a few other children's shows but nothing that looks like this.


As for the humor it feels kind of like Rocko's Modern Life, or early Nicktoon vibes. Nice gags and such. Not sure how much this would appeal to kids though. Obviously going for a nostalgic feeling and maybe they'd like the slapstick aspect but there are jokes for adults (but then again that's how Rocko was too :p  ) That being said the first episode kicks off with a DEVIL!


In any case you should probably watch it. If you love binging shows you could get through this pretty quickly. If you hate it then you've only wasted 10 minutes.
