Why It Rocks
- The animation is beautiful and the character designs are cute.
- It stays faithful to the original book.
- Catchy theme song.
- It has an interesting story arc.
- The show is very LGBTQ+ positive, as it depicts a gay couple with their adopted daughter very well.
- Handles diversity and moral lessons well.
- All-star cast including Bobby Moynihan, Wanda Sykes, RuPaul and more.
- Sometimes it can be boring.
- It can also get rather preachy from time to time, as shown in one episode where Lucy, a male pixie, says that names belongs to people, not genders when asked about his traditionally feminine name. While what he said was true, it felt shoehorned in.
