Animated series these days often seem to be severely split between the "Dora the Explorer" age category and the "geared for adults" titles of, well, "Adult Swim" (e.g. - "The Venture Brothers). Finding something for the youth in-between - those who are still kids, not quite teenagers - isn't always as easy. It gets even tougher with superhero-based animated series: comic fans have become an older demographic and animated series starring comic book heroes are geared towards them, not younger viewers (e.g. - "Justice League" or the recent "Wolverine and the X-Men"). So it's nice when a series like "Marvel Super Hero Squad" comes along - juvenile enough that you feel your kids can watch it but not so young that they'll lose interest with "That's for little kids" comments.
MSSHS takes the premise that the Marvel comic characters have the heroes all living in one city - Superhero City (headed by Stan Lee, er, The Mayor) - and neighbour a villainous "state" headed by Doctor Doom. Many of the heroes work for SHIELD, the X-Men attend an actual school, and various other little ways of making it so the writers can basically go use any Marvel character they desire without having to deeply worry about "team affiliations" or such.

Have you been wondering how you can introduce superheroes when your kids are...well...nervous little weenies...but, if you watch Thomas the freakin' Tank Engine one more time you're going develop a permanent facial tic?
My nervous little kids LOVE this show. My kids are little, but I have 4 active children who would MUCH rather be playing outside instead of watching television. But, on a day where the kids can't go out and play...THIS lets me get my dishes done! Winner!
My oldest is 6 and is on the autism spectrum, but even my smaller ones love this show! My 5 yr old daughter now wants to be Iron Man when she grows up! LOL!
It has been a wonderful purchase! More silly...rather than violent. *thumbs up* I can let them watch it without worrying about them getting scared, or having nightmares.
I hope they continue on with this early childhood version of superheroes...I wanna see backpacks, and lunch boxes! I hate the scary looking backpacks when I've got a nervous 6 yr old...the only thing that is relatively benign for this age range is usually from the Cars movie.
FINALLY a superhero show that is geared toward younger kids.

Not a huge fan of SHSS. I feel dumber when I watch it so I gave it away and when my kids are choosing a show to watch on occasion, I steer them away from this show.Published 1 month ago by beachie-keen

Wish this hadn't gone out of production. Its funny, clever, and not crazy violent. The appearance of the characters is designed to appeal to smaller kids and make them much less... Read morePublished 21 months ago by Scott Tarbox

Great alternative to the "scary" super hero cartoons on cable tv or dish. The younger ones can enjoy without being scared.Published on August 9, 2013 by wilfried
