Reception

Common Sense Media rated the show 4 out of 5 stars, statin that "this fun and funny show has broad appeal and will entertain families, and the facts that are shared by the actual expert can teach the audience a thing or two. That said, parents can also use the show to talk with kids about honesty and the consequences of telling fibs in the real world".[5]
