This show was a cartoon show that didn't look down at kids or tried to be educational. It focused on the absurdity and made fun of everything including it's own characters. It also toke the terms of horror and death while turning them on it's head and still be appropriate enough for kids. It might not have any noticeable recognizable or educational lessons but it did more to make it an experience.

Which is why I love it.
