MIRACULOUS: TALES OF LADYBUG & CAT NOIR cover image Click to play video trailer
What do a Ladybug, black cat and a hawk moth all have in common? This new French cartoon is creative, funny, gender-friendly and visually adorable. I enjoyed it so much that I watched all seven episodes back to back. Each episode has a new villain and a creative story line. You will be totally entertained trying to guess what the new character is and what it will look like.

Cristina Valenzuela is the voice of a regular teenager Marinette Dupain. She has a ladybug in an earring and, when things go wrong and evil appears, she uses her ladybug Tikki to change into a half human and half ladybug. This new super hero, my favorite character, is adorable. Everyone loves ladybugs. Black and red might be my new favorite colors. She encompasses the virtues of saving people, helping people and compassion. As a ladybug, she is allowed one lucky charm which gives her one gadget. Then she sees in red and black which zeroes in on the different things she needs to do with the gadget to defeat the villains.

Cat Noir has super powers with the help of a ring that change him into a black cat that is Ladybug's side kick. Of course, there a few crushes going on. Our superheroes have great best friends that help them in real life. After all, they are both shy until they become Ladybug and Cat Noir.

These two teenagers are believable, every day teens. I found this endearing since it makes them both easily relatable. The other characters are regular teens that all have issues such as jealousy, unfair treatment, anger and things we all go through. Then there is a super villain named Hawk Moth who covets and attempts to steal their powers by using his akuma, butterflies infused with black energy, to influence and transform everyday citizens into supervillains. There are a lot of messages in this film which help everyone to see how easy it is to get upset but, once you chill and think about it, it will all work out.

Time breaker is my favorite episode because this supervillain can turn back time which would be handy. We are humans and make mistakes and it would be a great to get a redo and fix them.

I found the dialogue to be realistic and amusing. It is quick witted and yet has a few clich�s which will have you laughing. There is a touch of anime in the graphics and writing. The CG animation is crisp and all the scenes pop. If it was not a cartoon, you could easily see how this could be a real world. It found it enjoyable to watch.

Ladybug and Cat Nori are high school students, but I think that younger people would love watching this so I recommend it for ages 6 to 15. Super heroes, lady bugs, cats and villains appeal to a broad range of people. There are many anime fans who would love viewing this to. I give this series 5 out of 5 Tikki spots on! Tahdah! Ladybug stars. This DVD collection of seven episodes is brought to you by Shout! Factory and is in stores now.

This show is about two best friends that are in school together, they become superheroes known as Ladybug and Cat Noir. I like this series. I find it to be very cute with all of its clever puns and adorable outfits and it's also full of friendly values such as sticking together through thick and thin and keeping each others secrets. It really makes you want to be a superhero as well. However, there is one thing I had an issue with and that is the voices and the moving mouths which do not always match up. I also don't care for the transformation scenes where the girls change into their outfits. I hope the make more episodes in the future though as the good outweighs the negative. I recommend this series for ages 6 to 13 and give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Miraculous is a very fun series about two friends who lead normal lives during the day and then transform into superheroes with many skills. The kids watching this video ranged in ages from 3 to 11 and they loved it! The characters are fun and sassy which keeps the attention of the older kids. The younger kids liked the fast-paced storyline and vibrant colors of the cartoon. There are "good guys" and "bad guys" that the children could easily identify and root for. Some of the ideas are new and innovative making it interesting for parents to watch too!

Marinette and Adrien, two seemingly normal kids live what appears to be an ordinary teen life in Paris with daily encounters that create amusing circumstances in school, with friends, family, and even with strangers. But when the evil Hawk Moth threatens their beloved city of Paris, they transform into the superheroes Ladybug and Cat Noir using super powers gained with the help of their magical friends. Hawk Moth is using his evil energy to transform normal people into super villains, so our two heroes need to use all their skills to defeat him.
