7. The Music
Now, #StarVsTheForcesofEvil isn’t like Phineas & Ferb, where there’s a new song each episode, but the show does have original songs and themes. The soundtrack is fun and quirky, and goes great with the fun, quirky nature of the show. The opening theme gives you the feeling you’re getting into a fun, amazing adventure. The other songs add to the fun, such as the "Princess Song" by Patrick Stump (lead singer of Fall Out Boy). The themes for serious moments of the show are just simply beautiful and really add weight to those moments. The only problem I have with the soundtrack is that they haven’t uploaded all of original songs.
6. The Voice Cast
The voice cast for Star vs The Forces of Evil is amazing. Every character sounds unique, from the main to side characters. I really can’t imagine anyone else voicing them. The best voices in the show have to be Star and Toffee. Star is voiced by Eden Sher, who brings a lot of energy and have great comedic timing. Toffee is voiced by Michael C. Hall from the hit TV show Dexter, whose voice just gives this cold and villainous atmosphere to Toffee.
The voice cast really help bring personality to this show and its characters. If you like great voice acting, give Star vs The Forces of Evil a shot — you won’t regret it.
5. The Humor
Star vs The Forces of Evil is one of the funniest shows on television. The humor is quirky with a dash of randomness and some darker jokes thrown in here and there. The show's humor mainly comes from Star and her interactions with other characters. The show also finds humor in the dynamic between Star and Marco, with Star being a free spirit and Marco being more of straight man.
The dynamic between Star and Marco is also used to greater effect with both characters acting out of place in each other's worlds. Marco's complete understanding of Earth (his world), and Star's complete understanding her world (Mewni) and the other magic dimensions, the two are a great match.
The show also draws humor the villain Ludo. Ludo is one of the funniest villains I’ve seen in animation. He’s one of these loser villains that’s hilarious when he fails or wins. So, if you’re looking for a humorous show, check out Star vs The Forces of Evil.

The world of Star vs The Forces of Evil is one of the most exciting worlds in animations right now. There are dimensions that lead to other worlds filled with monsters and magic.

1. The Characters
The reason I believe Star vs The Forces of Evil is such a popular show is because of the characters. The main cast for have depth to them; they go through actual character development. Star is a great character — she's energetic, funny and has a lot of heart. Star's arc for the show is about her growing up and seeing how she has changed from the start. It's arguably ones of the best character development arcs I've seen in a show.
Marco is a great character, and he shares the same arc as Star, but his journey is more about him becoming confident. The villains are great characters as well — Toffee is a mysterious, cold and calculating villain. Ludo is a hilarious villain who just wants approval. So, if you're looking for a cartoon about character going through a story and developing as an individual, I highly recommend checking out Star vs The Forces of Evil.
