The retro-style show The Mighty B is trying to be.
A simple concept done right? Yup, that's Harvey Street Kids Listen to this premise, three kids try improve the lives of the other children who live near them, doesn't this sound like a premise that could mess up easily? Here's the thing though, Harvey Street Kids is incredibly clever with how it treats its concept. It's a show that is built on having a bunch of alpha kids to one another and it's all played out for comedy due to how wacky and unrealistic the pain is. It knows which characters should receive their comeuppance when they do something wrong and at no point does their comeuppance seem painful at all. The animation here is amazing. It's the Dreamworks' classic media show that's completely 2D, and it looks gorgeous here! I love the faithful to the source, it's a very stylistic choice that I know must've taken so many frames to make! The characters here are actually pretty likable with some character development throughout the series. My favorite character is Audrey, her can do perkiness are things that I can quote and people will get! I'd love to go into much detail as possible on this show, but I simply cannot. There are so many things that're brilliant about it. I highly recommend this cartoon, it's among my top 10 cartoons of the 2010s.
