  • super why super pie

    how about they just give up on word crap and eat any pie?
  • was alright at first, but got boring after a while

    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 For example: the boy who cried wolf was originally made to teach kids that if you lie too much no one will believe you when you tell the truth.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.

    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!



    *changes channel back and forth*

    LOL! If this glitch still worked, I'd keep doing this trick! XDmoreless
  • NO LOGIC whatsoever.

    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

    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
