'Hilda' is a British-Canadian animated television series based on the graphic novel series of the same name by Luke Pearson. Produced by Silvergate Media and Mercury Filmworks.


The show follows the adventures of fearless Hilda, a blue-haired girl who, along with her adorable deerfox Twig, travels to the city of Trolberg, where she befriends even the most dangerous monsters.

Why It Rocks

  1. First to start off, It is very faithful to the source material.
  2. The animation is smooth and detailed.
  3. The characters are adorable and likeable, especially Twig, Alfur, Hilda, David, Frida and The Great Raven!
    • Hilda is a very likable character, as she likes to help solve problems, making her good role-model for kids.
  4. The creature designs are really creative like the Woodman, Trolls, Elves, Giants, etc.
  5. The Marras are one of the most well thought out villains in the series as they are teenagers that use magic to invade the dreams of people.
  6. It borrows elements from American shows like Gravity Falls, Over The Garden Wall, and Adventure Time and uses them very well.
  7. The creator of the graphic novels was involved with this show.
  8. Very good theme music, composed by Grimes.
  9. In Season 2, we go into deeper yet relatable issues like how Hilda and her mother are starting to have conflict in their relationship.
    • " Chapter 9: The Deerfox " was a very tear-jerking episode.

Bad Qualities

  1. Since this show is mostly targeted towards children, Hilda's dialogue is rather simple and cheesy.
  2. Frida was really unlikable in the episode " Chapter 9: The Ghost ".
  3. The Nisse are also unlikable for they are the ones who stole Frida’s book in the first place, which tore her and Hilda’s friendship.
  4. Some characters were absent in Season 2. A big example being The Great Raven who was a major character, but for some reason, he is no longer seen or mentioned.


  • The *You don't even have hands!* Line, It became very iconic in the internet.

All I can say is that this show is awesome. Storywriters and people spent their times tries new things and never holding anything back.

Season 2 Chapter 9 was way too emotional. It made me cry for mintues.

However, the show is sometimes goes too dark. (Spoilers ahead) like past and future Hilda and Alfur gets eaten by a worm, David gets his head chopped but not once, but twice.

It deserves a 3rd season if possible.
