It doesn’t last too long, so you don’t lose your focus and you can pause it to go at your own pace. At the end of the day, I’m always proud of how I got to draw one of my favorite cartoon characters and got a lesson from a real animation artist.

This show helped my son gain confidence in drawing and is a short, lively and healthy show that the whole family can enjoy together.

My favorite characters are Poppy, Branch and Barb – she brings out Poppy’s rock chick and Poppy brings out the pop side of Barb.
