It is, in fact, determined to run with 'cute' as far as possible in an attempt to attract rabid fanboys.
Their mother sent them off with a bag of useful stuff. Every episode, they hit an utterly mundane problem, which is, of course, insurmountable because they are helpless and cute and stuff. And because the main character is an idiot of course. Then they remember the bag and withdraw... A cell phone! And name it! How cute!
At about this point I had to excuse myself to the vomitarium. Avoid.
