True classic. Just google the island filler episodes (23-34), read the summary, and skip them so your enjoyment of the show stays positive.


A show with soaring, triumphant highs and absolutely crushing lows. Worth it at the very least for historical value, but maybe skip THAT arc


A bright, imaginative first half, with an endearing cast, is ruined in its second when it loses all sense of direction and its charm.


A Jules Verne-style journey with great characters, animation and awesome music. What a masterpiece and a true classic ! Watch it !


This is a great show that more people should watch. Steampunk Adventure. Great show all around.


I remember this from long ago and had an excuse to rewatch it over the holiday. it has aged well and is still a fun little seris.


Occasionally great, occasionally awful — there really isn’t any middleground with this show
