Not familiar with Maggie? Think Dora with more interesting sidekicks and without the whore-ish merchandise push, monotonous schtick and repetitive dialogue.
All-in-all, Maggie and the Ferocious Beast is a pretty perfect show with a friendly non-evasive tone, quirky/cool characters and cute, subtle story lines that show more than they tell which is quite refreshing. Maggie reminds me of Oswald in that it is a less frantic entertainment (compared to it's peers) - something I also appreciate greatly as we try to foster a mellow vibe in the OWTK chateau.
The "Somewhere in Nowhere Land" DVD is as perfect a gift for any child already enamored with Maggie as it is for little tykes who, like us, have never heard of Maggie. The collection of 12 stories on "Somewhere in Nowhere Land" serves as an ideal introduction to the Maggie and the Ferocious Beast characters.
