Just for Laughs: Alien TV

This weekend a found a Netflix cartoon show that I found hysterically funny. I tend to view most cartoons these days with skepticism because of their propaganda-related, culturally acceptable  adult agendas. This show was, however, a refreshing exception. And in these days of “Covid fatigue,” we all need laughter.

I was delighted that a three-year-old, six-year-old, eight-year-old, and two grandparents all found it equally funny. So much so, in fact, that we watched five episodes in a row before Mom and Dad came home and our babysitting ended.

So what show made me laugh so much that I decided to recommend it?  Netflix’s Alien TV, featuring three bumbling visitors from outer space who are sent to earth on missions to investigate bicycles, gymnastics, camping, arcades, supermarkets, and other mysteries, and report back to their planet. Ixbee, Pixby, and Squee speak in a gibberish language that alone makes me laugh as they make inept efforts to unravel the complexities of life on earth.

If you’re looking for a cartoon for a kid (old or young) who needs a laugh, Alien TV is my recommendation. And if you’re fighting Covid exhaustion, sit down for thirty minutes with Ixbee, Pixby, and Squee.
