  • My kids LOVE IT! And I find it to be really cute... I can't stand most of todays kids shows - Dora, Barney - So Annoying... But I like this one.

  • my ds used to watch it, but we're not really big on the sprout channel anymore lol. every now and then it comes on PBS. the only "bad" thing i heard about it was the original opening, when they're singing the theme song or whatever, it shows him throwing a fit. alot of moms were HOT about it, and wrote them a letter. they changed it though, now all he does is wipe his brow. it's the part where he sings " 'cept when i've had enough"...other than that, i've heard nothing bad.

  • see i love it to and it sometimes drives me crazy because ill be standing at the counter doing dishes and ill start to sing the theme song haha but ive heard (well basically what miss kelli said) hes whiney and he acts like a brat and is showing kids they can do things and get away with them if you have an imaginary friend because of one of the episodes they have he does.

  • No harm at all in my book, my kids love the show.
    They don't even seem to pick up on that part- they are just interested in who he played with, where he went, etc.

  • Max LOVES this show. He also likes Word World. Other than that he couldn't care less about the tv.
