From the beginning of the series Mao Mao has daddy issues. Shin Mao keeps turning up in flashbacks and it’s clear that he never gave Mao Mao the love he wanted. When we finally meet Shin he seems like the big jerk we all thought he was, but it turns out that he’s just a small man who’s been hurt himself.
Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart really wants Mao Mao to learn to be comfortable with himself, but Mao Mao’s dad has been needing to learn that lesson since before his son was born. Let’s dissect Shin’s debut episode, Small, and see what we can learn about the patriarch of the Mao clan.
Of course it’s really best to have seen a cartoon before you decide whether you’re excited about it or not, but it can’t hurt to take a peek ahead and see what’s coming, can it?

Watch Infinity Train each weeknight from 7:30 PM EST to 8 PM though.
Teen Titans Go! may have taken the top spot for average episode viewership by picking its moment to air its two episodes, but Steven Universe: Future put up some great numbers with its premier as well. The Amazing World of Gumball also got great ratings for its Darwin’s Yearbook episodes in December.
Oh boy, we were worried about our beautiful baby boy’s future and now here it is. Please, we’re begging: get Steven some therapy! At the very least get him to use his Emotional Support Amethyst.
Where will the series go from here? How will it end? When will we get new episodes? Nobody knows, but try to believe in Steven.
