      Hal Boedeker Orlando Sentinel The comedy may be distasteful. The bigger problem is it isn't especially funny. Rated: 3/5 Apr 8, 2021 Full Review Ray Richmond Variety The pilot suffers from scribe Don Beck's punchless opening script that stains all of those trailblazing graphics with a collection of doltish black stereotypes. May 30, 2019 Full Review Ken Tucker Entertainment Weekly This is animation at the other end of the scale from Batman Beyond, which is not to say it's either better or less effective - just different, and certainly distinctive. Rated: B May 30, 2019 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Maybe in time The PJs will grow on viewers. King of the Hill took a few episodes to work its way into my heart, but at least with that show the characters seemed well-defined from the start. The same can't be said about The PJs. Apr 8, 2021 Full Review Ellen Gray Philadelphia Daily News There's a fair amount of toilet humor (and some truly dazzling toilet animation), but the all's-well-that-ends-well plot line is warmer and squishier than one might expect from Murphy, leaving most of the envelope-pushing to the animators. Apr 8, 2021 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) The PJs is certainly something to look at. The animation -- or, rather, "foamation" -- is distinctive and visually appealing. Now, if only The PJs was something to listen to, as well. May 30, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
