"Remember as a kid when possibilities seemed endless and a cardboard box could transform into a fort, a tank, a mountain, or a Super Mario pipe?... Justin Time
is a new animated program for pre-schoolers that brings that boundless creativity to the small screen. The show centers on Justin, a young boy who imagines himself traveling around the world at different points in history." and#151; Torontoist
"Tired of preschool cartoons spending an inordinate amount of time on boring matching games, talking down its audience, or afraid of going out on a creative limb? If so, then meet Justin Time.... The series is about trust and teamworkand#151;whether nestled deep in the jungle or perched high on top of a snowcapped mountainand#151;and the many other elements of friendship most conducive to having a great time (and learning a thing or two along the way). Justin Time encourages a kind of freewheeling imagination that hopes to leave the didactic and lazy storytelling of yester-animation in the dust." and#151; Animation Insider
