    was alright at first, but got boring after a while

    By panteirra84, Mar 27, 2014

    i give this show credit for teaching kids how to spell and read, but they're too repetitious and they've really butchered alot of children's classic stories. For example: the boy who cried wolf was originally made to teach kids that if you lie too much no one will believe you when you tell the truth. That's why the boy who cried wolf cried wolf when there wasn't a wolf and then no one came to his rescue when there really was one. I think it was so stupid that they played it up that the boy who cried wolf was telling the truth about there being a wolf and the parents were stupiditly quick to not believe him without questioning him first. same with Whyatt's parents when they were quick to not believe him when he told his parents that the baby said "Why". The only episode that i found to be the most entertaining and educational is Galileo's space adventure. It would've been funnier though if Galileo told his cat "Houston, you are a problem" after rescuing him from the comet and i like that it teaches the kids that the comet was orbiting. And hearing the words "super duper computer" in every episode is as boring as hearing "ooper schmooper big idea" in sid the science kid. I think instead of changing the story to make it better in the books, maybe what they could do instead is come up with creative ways to teach kids how to make choices to make things bettermoreless

    Not that great.

    By leviwellsy, Mar 26, 2014

    The most comedy I got from this show is this weird glitch with the closed captioning! It doesn't work now, but years ago, when I turned on the closed captioning, the captions were inaccurate and kept repeating!

    >>THE SUPER READERS SAVED THE DAY!

    >>THE SUPER READERS SAVED THE DAY!

    *changes channel back and forth*

    >>SUPER WHY!

    >>SUPER WHY!

    >>SUPER WHY!

    >>SUPER WHY!

    LOL! If this glitch still worked, I'd keep doing this trick! XD

    NO LOGIC whatsoever.

    By OlgaG, Feb 11, 2013

    The whole show, the relationships between people and events, and the way it all unrolls does not make any sense and has no application to real life. It is not the worst show on TV since it still teaches some alphabet, but it absolutely does not relate to life. Feels like those who create it are really lazy to come up with something more logical yet exciting.

    Solving problems

    By sabrinaavans, Dec 15, 2012

    I have two kids that watch this show. It is horrible.

    1 You cannot look within a book to solve life problems

    2 You cannot change the words in a story to solve your problems

    3 You need to learn to solve your own problems in life by asking questions or asking a adult

    4 In reality if you went about trying to solve problems SUPER WHY style people would be dead or in a hospital

    5 Try other channels like Nick Jr. or Sprout

    Good spelling, dangerous lessons

    By livinwater, Jul 16, 2012

    Great for teaching the alphabet, but teaches children that life revolves around them; if they don't "like" a situation, story or moral truth, they can change it with magic. In "The Boy Who Cried Wolf," the problem is that the parents were insensitive jerks because they wouldn't believe everything their son told them without question.



    This ultimately undermines teaching. The shows reinforces children's pre-existing belief that they already know everything; parents & teachers are idiots who "just don't understand" anything.

    This show is horrible and there are some things im consurned with?

    By CristinaMccan, May 06, 2012

    I have some problems with this show

    1.Every episode is about the same thing one of the main characters has a problem and the main proligist(whyatt) calls the other super readers and then they head of to the book club and they save the story (not) by changing the story and then go back to the book club and they then find out what to do they solve the problem and do this stupid dance they repeat over and over again!

    2.Does the red girl even have parents because im now thinking that she only has her grandma.

    3.3 of the main characters are so stupid and such goodie goodies,The only main character that is at least funny and is not that goodie goodie is Red.

    4.They always do the same things and they never do anything else.

    5.Half of the characters are too thin.

    and 6.They go a little too far with the Q's and all they focus on is whyatt what about the others!

    So stop wasting your time watching this junk and watch Bubble Guppies or Kung fu panda Legends of Awsomeness!moreless

    Terrible

    By ChristineSiri, Feb 12, 2012

    I loathe this show. Once again, the educational show producers has made a 4th wall breaking, too lame, and overall stupid show. The CGI animation is horrible. I think they were trying to copy anime chibis. Nice try. Also, they're running out of ideas. First, I thought it was all traditional fairy tales. Now, they're making up their own stories. And it's getting too repetitive. My final statement is, this show just sucks. Period.

    Geat Show Dumb Episodes

    By zuperduper, Aug 29, 2011

    Super Why is a fun and educational show but after seeing episodes Goldilocks and the 3 bears:the Mystery we see how super the show really is They have 2 episdoes based on the same story. Running out of ideas already? They have searched everywhere folktales and movies are now common. the are also changing the stories that are already changed. Look at the frog prince episode. They just changed it so it could fit their plot. So they could'nt find a story to fit the plot so they changed it. The princess wants to PLAY with the prince. They are running out of ideas and only the 18th episode! I mean the writers took a big break in these episodes they should get their butts in gear!moreless

    Another reason why kids can't be superheros

    By Woahwoah312, Aug 19, 2011

    As much as I hate Fanboy and Chum Chum,there is another show that proves why superheroes suck when they are kids. Unless it's Powerpuff Girls or Sidekick,it sucks. However,PBS Kids proved me right,and made a show that makes Fanboy and Chum Chum look like Invader Zim. Super Why? is about a group kids that go into books and save the day with the powers of counting,spelling and stuff like that. Seriously,I feel like this is the processor of FBACC. First off,the animation looks horrible. Everybody looks horrible and have shiny eyes like in FBACC. It looks even worse when they are in the books,seriously,everybody moves slowly and feels like a christmas card than a book. As if that wasn't bad enough,this show also has the stupid "Ask the audience" thing. Seriously,if these idiots are superheroes,why would they need help from the audience? It's just like in Little Einsteins where the kids ask the audience for help when they are called geniuses. And what really disturbs me is the fact that one of the characters are a pig who talks. Seriously,who idea was that? The education is pretty much just counting,spelling and stuff like that,which fails because so many educational shows focus on that. Overall,,this show sucks and proves that PBS Kids is running out of ideas. Seriously,why can't they have good shows like Cyberchase,Arthur and Fetch with Ruff Ruffman? And this just proves that kids suck at being heroes. With shows like this,Teamo Supremo and Fanboy and Chum Chum,the idea just fails. Never watch this show,and change it to Arthur,Cyberchase and Fetch.moreless
