Duck & Goose season 1 review – simplistic but no rewatch value

July 9, 2022

This Apple TV+ Duck & Goose Season 1 review is spoiler-free.

A brand new anime series based on the New York Times bestselling book, Duck & Goose hit Apple TV+. Is the series worth watching? Let’s dive into it.

The only thing I knew before watching Duck & Goose was that I would play the game when I was a kid. I’m not sure kids today even know the game, but it was fun to play.

Duck and goose play a little tag game until they come across an egg. Then they want to become protectors of the egg until it hatches. It was the theme of much of the show. They are like all other children where they hang out together (where were their parents?), play, have fun and do what children do, but like a duck and a goose.

One thing that stands out is that the relationship between Duck & Goose is something that I loved. Sure, they don’t like the same things, but the show points out that sometimes we should do things our friends like to do to support them or even be there for them. I loved that they highlighted things like this because kids (even adults) could learn from it and realize that it’s not always about them. Another thing I liked was the chemistry between Duck & Goose. Jecobi Swain and Connor Andrade voiced them and they had worked really well together.

To me, Duck & Goose’s voices are incredibly boring when they speak. It’s that high-pitched voice that sounds like nails on a blackboard. Fortunately, the show is made for the little ones. However, as a dad, when you’re looking for shows for your kids to put on, you know that if they love it, you’ll hear it over and over. For this reason, you don’t want to deal with annoying voices. So, parents, you have been warned.

Globally, Duck & Goose is utterly charming and even has some inspirational moments for the little ones. However, that being said, the age group this is aimed at (babies up to MAYBE 5-6), they’re not going to be watching inspirational stories. Therefore, I have mixed feelings on this one as I think it’s cute but also very boring. So, I recommend parents to skip this one with their kids.
