The lessons include dealing with bullies, handling peer pressure, forgiving others, fighting temptation, handling fear, listening to parents, having self-esteem and being compassionate. It was created by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki, who both perform many of the characters’ voices.[2] it was one of the earliest computer animated franchises, predating both ReBoot and Toy Story.
