We found the Bubble Guppies to be a wonderfully depicted animated series for kids to enjoy.  The wee people loved the graphics and thought the little mermaid~ish people were cute.  My son wasn't much a fan, he felt it was more geared towards girls, but I did catch him paying attention when he felt no one was watching.

I loved the thought process behind this series, geared towards children who are heading into preschool.  The episodes involve your children in problem solving, recycling, pets and more.  The kids loved Goby who has loads of imagination and Deema who was always playing jokes and pranks.

I would give the Bubble Guppies a four out of five stars.  While I totally enjoyed the episodes, there is just something off about the characters illustrated that I cannot pinpoint nor name and it may have something to do with their over proportioned heads.
