I watched WordGirl when it premired and when it was on Maya & cartoon is probably a parody of superhero shows since they play around the cliches such as the "secret identity". It is about Becky aka WordGirl arrives on Earth and lives with her adopted family, the Botsford. She has a sidekick named Capatain Huggyface aka Bob. Everyday, she has to face her double life: as a normal girl and as a superhero. I like the cartoon; I do not care if it is educational. It is entertaning. I like the fact I am extending my vocabulary by watching this. This series reminds me of The Powepuff Girls and Atomic Betty, mixed together with a hint of educational.
WordGirl/Becky is an alright main character, the living dictionary and pony loving girl. Though, she is not one of my favorite--nor Captain Huggyface/Bob. The best characters are the villlains. It has the best villains in a cartoon since The Powerpuff Girls. Dr. Two-Brains, Tobey, Chuck, Victoria Best, and other villains are humorous, clever--some are not though--, and likable. Other than the villains, the reccurring characters are fun as well such as Violet, the Botsworths, and the citizens.
The animation is bold and pretty good for flash. The writing is witty, and well-developed. The music really fits the mood of the series well (the theme song is very catchy. Every season keeps getting better and darker.
WordGirl proves that it can educational and entertaining at the same time, and it's not just for kids.
