Let's Go Luna! is an animated series created by Joe Murray, who also made Rocko's Modern Life and Camp Lazlo. It premiered on PBS affiliates on November 21, 2018. In the first season, there are 38 half-hour episodes and a one-hour special. The second season has 26 episodes and premiered on May 10, 2021.
Andy the frog, Leo the wombat, and Carmen the butterfly are best friends. Their parents work at the Circo Fabuloso, a circus that travels the world, so Andy, Leo, and Carmen are in new places all the time. They learn about the different countries of the world with the help of Luna The Moon, who comes down from the sky each day and sprouts arms and legs.
Why It Rocks
- Very fluid animation along with nice-looking backgrounds. In fact, this is one of the only storyboard-driven preschool shows. Also, the ending scene in each episode when Luna is in the night sky looks amazing and beautiful, almost looking like it's a painting.
- Well-done and catchy songs, especially the theme song.
- Likeable characters with unique personalities. Andy, Carmen, and Leo have a great dynamic with each other, while Luna acts as a patient teacher for the kids, and is also silly at times.
- Very educational about various countries. The information presented is very accurate and it actually avoids using stereotypes.
- Clever writing and funny jokes.
- Decent plots.
- Great voice-acting. Especially Judy Greer as Luna.
- Some of the character designs are a bit weird-looking (most notably Luna). For example, Leo looks more like a dog than a wombat. But this is expected, since the show was created by Joe Murray.
- The episode plots (while decent) tend to be rather cookie-cutter.
- Despite the show avoiding stereotypes, sometimes country aspects (such as several Mexico stereotypes present in Hola Mariachi) that are mentioned in the series are either exaggerated or unrealistic from time to time.
- There are new characters in every episode, and 9 times out of 10, they don't show up again, similar to Nature Cat. However, this is justified, as they go to different countries in each episode.
- Although Leo is said to be a wombat from Australia, he almost sounds like he doesn't even have and Australian accent.
