TV Series Review

Waldo and Wenda are always down for an adventure. And as members of the WorldWide Wanderer Society, travel is the name of their game.

From the Amazon rainforests to the canals of Venice, Waldo and Wenda learn all they can from their mentor, Wizard Whitebeard, as he sends them off to accomplish daily deeds across the globe.

Along the way, they find and collect stripes to become wizard-level Wanderers. That is, if they can evade their sneaky rival, Odlulu, and her fuzzy ferret, Fritz.

There You Are, Waldo!

Based on the popular British puzzle book series by Martin Handford, Where’s Waldo? is a TV-Y kids show created by Dreamworks that previously found its home on Universal Kids, but is now accessible through NBC’s streaming platform, Peacock.

Each 22-minute episode shows young Wanderers Waldo and Wenda travelling the globe in search of fun experiences and new skills. Along the way, these two teammates find magical keys that help them learn how to change the weather, interact with dancing plants or bring mythological characters to life.

And as little ones watch along, they too will get a boost of educational knowledge as they learn about geography and science, and the value of friendship, teamwork and bravery.

Star Trek: Lower Decks

This cartoon feels more like Futurama than classic Star Trek. And for families, that’s not necessarily a good thing.

Absurd! PLANET

What you see on this nature show should come as no surprise to any animal documentary vet. What you hear, though, is another matter.

Muppets Now

Disney+’s new take on the Muppets is funny. But like a closeup of the bags under Waldorf’s eyes, it comes with some unsightly wrinkles.

A likable lead doesn’t redeem this wildly problematic show.
