This show has brought a great deal of joy into the lives of me and my friends. We enjoyed how real-life (and challenging!) issues are addressed in what is on the surface "just a cartoon". It's hard not to draw parallels between this series and others like Adventure Time and Regular Show which do a similar thing on a more infrequent basis. This could have been done as a single "movie", but I appreciate the short breaks between episodes - it allows time for reflection, and focuses the energy of the plot. So happy to see this medium being used in a such a fun and meaningful way. +1 Cartoon Network & writers!

This is the closest that watching a cartoon has ever come to the feeling of reading a good book. It can be a little discombobulating in the beginning, but it was done intentionally so that we the audience could experience the confusion the main characters are experiencing. If you haven't seen it yet I recommend waiting until the first chilly evening in autumn. Curl up in front of the t.v. with a cup of coco and warm blanket, turn the lights off, and prepare for an experience.

For too long, we've been dealing with cartoons like Breadwinners, Sanjay and Craig, Teen Titans Go!, and Pickle and Peanut (just to name a few) that make cartoons seem like ways that people can outlet their stupidity. Now, with shows like Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, Regular Show, Steven Universe, and now this, I really feel like cartoons are getting some life again. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go eat some potatoes and molasses...
