The show makes me a better grandparent too
It’s a funny thing. I always considered myself a good father. But, as a grandfather, I’d like to call myself a great one. Right now, a beautifully crafted stop-animation show on Amazon Prime called Tumble Leaf tickles their fancy. So I spoil them with that show.
I look around at all my aging friends and as they’ve become grandparents. Like me, they seem to enjoy it more than the days of being a parent. It’s must be the lack of responsibility. I can spoil them. I load them up with sugar and presents. They love it (their parents, not as much). And then I can give them back and head home. What a joy.
“Much like my favorites, SpongeBob Squarepants and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, there is an air of believable lunacy to the show.”
So, I appreciate those things that make them most happy. These are, after all, my tools to their heart. Tumble Leaf is right there at the top.
Tumble Leaf is just one of the great offerings from Amazon Studios
Much like my favorites, SpongeBob Squarepants and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, there is an air of believable lunacy to the show. Tumble Leaf follows the adventures turned teachable moments of a blue fox by the name of Fig, who lives in an abandoned ship with his pet caterpillar, Stick. How could a show with a premise like this ever be anything but fantastic?
This seems to be par for the course for the production house doesn’t it?
Characters drive the Amazon Studios series and movies. Consider Transparent and Goliath, and films like Manchester by the Sea. Tumble Leaf, while as innocent as Mr. Rogers and Sesame Street, holds up that end of the bargain too.
Best of all, I rely on Amazon to maintain this level of greatness with Tumble Leaf for as long as it airs. And that makes a grandfather like me very happy. And my grandchildren too.
