I will make some autistic observations in no particular order about cartoon network's relatively new show, mao mao: heroes of pure heart, which /co/, to my displeasure, has never had a proper thread about
first off, whats this show about? a male feline edgelord with daddy issues from a family of living legends and his best friend, a huge male cyborg badger who always takes it easy when he isn't being criticized, they, after defeating a crew of sky pirates via. mishap, fly away on their flying motorcycle and accidently run into the then-invisible ruby pure heart, which partially breaks it and causes them to both fall off into pure heart valley, and causes the ruby pure heart's invisibility to permanently wear off, exposing whats basically carebearland to the vicious monsters in the forests surrounding pure heart valley, so mao mao quickly learns of this and becomes indebted to pure heart valley, where a particular sweetiepie(carebear) who wants to be a hero takes a liking to them and helps mao mao and badgerclops fight bad guys even though they told her to stay put, after which they let her be a part of the team, despite being 5 years old, and so the show is about them being the sheriffs of pure heart valley
you can take this show somewhat seriously, but not completely seriously; this show usually puts humor first, and should be treated as such, although some episodes have plenty of entertaining non-humor
for some episodes, this show bludgeons the plot of episode over your head, such as how badgerclops' friends are treating him badly, how badgerclops' refuses to believe that the crystals he bought don't prevent him from smelling bad and thinks that people only act like it because they envy his crystals, how adorabat shouldn't be trying to take shortcuts to becoming a hero, or how mao mao wants to prove that his sword doesn't suck; I dislike said bludgeoning, but I like most of those episodes anyway because of how they handle said bludgeoning
the amount of toilet humor is low, but it exists, and not in every episode; it is sometimes subtle, and it sometimes is not, and its existence is one of the few things that I dislike about this show
this show has plenty of continuity; for example, badgerclops gets the top bunk in every episode after the 4th one
however, episodes 17 and 20 have their numbers swapped around for some reason; episode 17 is actually episode 20, while episode 20 is actually episode 17, due to how mao mao's friends act in episode 20 like they've never heard the name of mao mao's sword before
this show has some sorts of character development:
in some episodes, characters have an opportunity to develop, and they do
in other episodes, characters have a clear opportunity to develop, and they choose not to
and in one recent episode, mao mao has an opportunity to undergo character development, but only undergoes partial character development by not overcoming a fear of his, but finally admitting that he has said fear after spending the entire episode denying his fear
