A show more charming than it has any right to be. You will be able to tolerate this with your kid
6 April 2019 | by GiraffeDoorSee all my reviews

I have fond memories of this show. I'm not sure what it is. It feels a lot like a little kids' show and I was not exactly a LITTLE kid when I saw it.

But it has an ineffable charm. Despite the title, the title characters from a menage a trois with Hamilton the anally retentive pig. His and Beast's clashing personalities were quite enjoyable with Maggie moderating as the audience surrogate. It seems to indulge a fantasy of a little girl taking a maternal relationship with a hug creature.

Nowhere land is a wonderfully inventive setting and it's quiet captivating to explore its ins and outs with the main characters plus the colorful peripheral cast.

I like the vibrant, but not garish, color pallet and the easy going whimsical story lines.

I watched it in England where they have dubbed it with British english voices but the casting and acting was enchanting.
