Cute Show with Off Humor
Yakkity Yak himself is an preteen yak. He lives with his grandmother in Onion Falls. His grandmother is a human. His two best friends are a little girl, Susie, and a Kio, a boy that is half pineapple and half human. Kio's dad is a pineapple that lives in a fruit basket. Yakkity wants to be a stand up comedian and goes to do stand-up regularly; however, he always gets booed off and no one thinks he is funny. The three kids love to go to the candy shop owned by Mr. Highpants and visit Mr. Crazyhair, the local mad scientist.

To some this may sound contrived, and the writers milk it. The humor in the show will appeal to children and those with an off sense of humor. It does teach lessons about being a good friend and doing your chores, just like most other cartoons. These little morals aren't so sickeningly sweet that it spoils the show for adults, though. It's almost like Super Milk Chan (on adult swim), except it makes sense and is appropriate for children.

Yakkity Yak is a good late night laugh for those who enjoy weird cartoons and like characters that aren't so average.
