Although this is an animated series, this is show is made for all ages. It's adventurous and funnier than you might expect, thanks to the help and comedic timing of Carmen's Bostonian brother and sister sidekick duo.

As stylish as the animation style is, none of the characters (Carmen aside) have much going for them, and the writing is lazy and generally lacks wit.
