ABOUT THE SERIES:
is a new Dove-approved-for-all-ages, family-friendly animated series geared for children ages 3-8. Created by two homeschooling dads and their families, it is a wholesome, faith-based show, set in a small town (think Andy Griffith's "Mayberry"), and has many of the same characteristics as the Veggie Tales series. The main character is an active, seven-year-old boy named Kip who is exploring the ever-changing world around him, while learning more about our never-changing God.
I watched Episode 1: Invasion of the Cubecumber
with my adult, special-needs daughter. Her favorite show at the moment is "Remy & Boo"
on Universal Kids, and honestly prefers that show over Cubekins. However, she did enjoy watching it. The show's colorful characters, and the songs, are what made it most appealing to her. She said she would watch it again. I, personally, thought the animation was a little peculiar at first with the characters being in the shape of cubes; but I quickly realized the shape is what makes the show unique from other animated shows. The story-line is creative, and I appreciate the inclusion of faith, prayer, and good family values. I also enjoyed the catchy songs.

I suspect the cube people were inspired by Minecraft and similar games. They do look a bit freaky at first glance, but then so do Minecraft characters.ReplyDelete
I hadn't thought about that! My kids never got into Minecraft, so I guess that's why it didn't cross my mind.Delete
Actually, the cube-shaped characters were created because cubes are one of the easiest thing to create in 3D...we were trying to keep the show easy and quick to create, and yet still develop a distinctive style. :) However, as you can see, the cube characters quickly became "cuboid", as Finn tells us. :) - I'm the show's writer, BTW, and one of it's producers. Thanks so much for the review and the discussion. :DReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by, and for the clarification on the shapes! I appreciate your efforts in making wholesome, faith and value-based entertainment for children.Delete
