Amphibia wants to make dark jokes and frog jokes, and it succeeds at both. Or at least that’s what the early episodes are about.
Kid Cosmic seems like the natural offspring of a few shows, and a few pieces of very prominent media.
Each is about two minutes, give or take, and—I’m betting for budget or time reasons—it has no actually voiced characters. There’s just “reaction sounds” that could have easily been taken from an existing movie.
Between Kipo and The Last Kids on Earth, the child-friendly apocalypse has become a subgenre. But that’s not a bad thing, especially when both shows have been stellar.
She-Ra is not only a good show, but perhaps a great one. It’s a child-friendly epic fantasy. Warring factions and ancient magic and large battles dominate its plot. It has a much closer feel to Avatar than Barbie, with good writing and strong characters.
Lower Decks Has Yet To Make Me Laugh The biggest issue with Lower Decks is that it’s not funny. Not at all. And, for a series supposed to be a comedy, that’s a brutal failure. You can tell where the show is supposed to be funny, where it intends to make you laugh, but it…

Hilda Is The Absolute Cutest Show Hilda is made for young children. Yes. Fine. So is Harry Potter and Mario. So, yes, it’s not dark or extreme. And, yeah, you might get odd looks for admitting that you like it—but, if someone gives you flak for it, then send them to this article. Because Hilda…
Are kids still learning from cartoons, or is it all violence and bad jokes? Maybe today’s cartoons are aimed more toward adults (like Family Guy and Archer).
