When you ask most people who their favorite super hero is, they often come back with names like Superman, Batman, Spider-Man – the standard list. I’ve decided that the most fantastic group of heroes are not what one might think.
They’re the “Wonder Pets“.
This is a show on Nick Jr. that I discovered while watching television with my girlfriend’s young cousin. It’s about three kindergarten pets – a guinea pig, a terrapin, and a duckling – that respond to distress signals from other animals that are in trouble.
Yes, it’s sappy. Yes, it’s for young children. I don’t care. I love this show. It’s undeniably sweet and exactly the kind of thing young children should be watching.
