Preliminary (16/48 eps)
Like Charlie Brown this is a very cute show with a deeply philosophical side. Without ever being even slightly intense it tackles some deep stuff, topics like loneliness, how strange people are, and where a certain odd shaped stick came from. It straddles the thin line between subtlety and meaningless masterfully, each new episode is a joy to watch.

Honestly I like this better than Snoopy, Charlie Brown's overt Christian messages can be a bit offputting, this show is equally as thoughtful but a whole lot less preachy.

I think it'd be a really great show to watch with young children, its one of the few shows ...
