The adventures of Audrey, Lotta and Dot in the neighborhood of Harvey Street.
Why It Rocks
- Dot, Lotta, Lucretia, Melvin, and Tiny all finally made their animated debut, and Little Audrey makes her comeback after 60 years. Richie Rich also returns in the Season 2 finale, and is a recurring character in Season 3.
- It actually respects the source material while rebooting it at the same time.
- The Harvey Girls themselves are likable, adorable and engaging protagonists, as their personalities have been improved from their more flat personalities from the Harvey comics, similar to Huey, Dewey and Louie from the DuckTales reboot.
- It is more comical, cartoony and slapsticky than Little Audrey cartoons and Harvey Girls comic books.
- Cutesy animation.
- Brilliant voice acting, including Stephanie Lemelin who sounds great as Audrey.
- The artstyle resembles how the comics were back in the day.
- It shares similarities to The Loud House as both have an old school vibe to them.
- It quickly gained a cult following several weeks after it premiered.
- Memorable side characters such as The Bow and FruFru.
- Creative episode plots that help kids learn valuable lessons.
- It holds some of the most heartwarming moments of any DreamWorks animated show.
- The Halloween episode features an unexpected cameo from Voltron (another Classic Media property).
- The intro is fun and adorable.
- One of the few shows that are the crowning achievements of Dreamworks' streaming library along side Dragons, Trollhunters and the Voltron reboot.
- The cute scene with the DreamWorks Animation logo with the Harvey Girls.
- Its series finale, “Harvey Endings”, is a great way to wrap up the series.
- The families of the Harvey girls are debuted, which shows how Dot 's parents consisted of a gay couple.
- Moderate to constant use of modern day internet slang and trends that will feel dated in years to come, possibly in a year.
- Dot can lean a bit heavy on the feminist side at times, especially in "Hero Effect" where she supports the trend of gender-swapping reboots. Thankfully, this doesn't happen often.
- It can get mean-spirited sometimes.
- Some bad episodes such as "Cereal", a Pinkeye torture episode.
