A children's cartoon ahead of its time
Verified purchase
In the Early 2000s, Bruce W. Smith (the director of Bebe's Kids and the artist behind Dr. Facilier from the Princess of the Frog) created and produced The Proud Family.

The Disney Channel series follows the adventures of Penny Proud, a daughter of a veterinarian Trudy Proud and wannabe snack tycoon Oscar Proud. The series follows her family as she tackles everything ranging from peer pressure from her school friends to social issues that affect everyone.

While some episodes do veer towards slapstick, the show rose above its stereotypical nature. Actors, such as Kyla Pratt, Tommy Davidson, Jo Marie Payton and Paula Jai Parker infuse the otherwise stock character types with a sense of strong personality, as though they were actual flesh and blood characters.

The show also delved into issues not normally seen on children's television such as Kwanzaa, homelessness, bullying, piracy, activism and a particularly topical (and very relevant) episode dealing with Muslim Americans.

For the fans, a must buy.

The Proud Family

I love this show. It is funny, engaging, and entertaining. I was happy to see that I could get the original version (there are copies on certain websites). I enjoy watching this with my 8 year old son.

Missing an Episode
Verified purchase
I ordered all three volumes of the Proud Family and was super excited to finally have it in my possession to watch anytime I wish, but I did notice that there is an episode missing. The episode missing is "Don't Leave Home Without It". This episode is when Penny is entrusted with her very own credit card (voiced by Steve Harvey), which she plans on using responsibly, but it seems to have a mind of its own. Oscar, meanwhile, nearly spends his family out of house and home in his attempt to catch a mouse.

That's one of my favorite episodes so I was disappointed to see that it wasn't on there. But luckily I can still find it online elsewhere.

This show came on when I was growing up and it was the show to watch and it did have life lessons in each episode.
