i will grant you that. it's one of the better uses of that whole 'take something oldfashioned and innocent and make it dark and gritty' trope
still, i can't get past how... muppet babies it is. any of that kind of wooding-building-blocks-ass rocking-horse shit like cowboys, pirates, police/firemen, tuxedo-clad spies.. it's gay as fuck. when i was a kid I liked superheroes, robots, ninja, monsters, animals.. yknow, something cool.
