Excellent Show
23 January 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. After recently seeing it on 'Noggin/The-N' i was able to appreciate it a bit more. The mysteries were original, and had good morals to them. Each 'mystery' consisted of 4 episodes. The episodes consisted of the mystery, and another side story about one of the characters. I thought it helped bring along the characters and storyline. One of my favorites was 'Max Mouse'. The ending was kind of a twist that you could predict, but it still ended very well. The Series was very good, but near the end of its run, you could start to feel its aging (especially when they started replacing actors with new ones). Overall, I love this show. It was a great show that I highly reccomend...if you can find it on TV again since it was taken of 'Noggin/The-N'
