User Reviews

One of the better shows in TV.
3 June 2002 | by bigsleepjSee all my reviews

Nathan Lane has the perfect voice for animation. It's energetic, yet childish! And this vehicle is perfect for him. And to be honest, I'm not even a Nathan Lane fan.

Don't waste your time with Digimon. "Teacher's Pet" is great for you who are still young at heart.

And the bird (Pretty Boy) and the depressing cat "Mr. Jolly" are wonderful! Not to mention the Opera music they play now and again...
