Wayward children, gang-fights, illicit romance, crazy family members, an iron-toothed matriarch. What more could you want to watch on TV? And delivered by a cute little bunch of furry actors that work for bugs, worms, and small amphibians.
What could be any better than that?
(Note: the show kinda feels heavy with anthropomorphism, but the little meerkats are so cute, it's easy to look the other way on this.)
