This show may have bad animation, but it does deserve more attention in America.

Why It Rocks

  1. Good episodes.
  2. Memorable theme song.
  3. It had a really good reboot in 2005 called Roobarb & Custard Too.
  4. Very unique art style, which was made with markers.
  5. The voices were all done by the same guy! ISN'T THAT TALENT?

Bad Qualities

  1. The animation is bad and hasn't aged very well.
  2. It got cancelled after only one season (30 episodes in total).
  3. While the episodes are nice, they just feel kinda fast.
  4. It isn't very well-known by Americans unlike other British cartoons like Thomas & Friends, despite appearing on the Nick Jr show Eureeka's Castle.
