Grossology

Show Summary

Ty and Abby Archer are the world's foremost experts in... you guessed it: Grossology. Assisted by the infamous "Lab Rat" and watched carefully by a mysterious "Director," this is the crime-fighting duo that gets called in when the case becomes too gross for the adult agents to handle. All of the duo's animated adventures are grounded in real science and based on the books of Sylvia Branzei.

  • One of my favorite new cartoon shows ever! Right up there with THE POWERPUFF GIRLS and THE VENTURE BROS.!

    I've already been aware of the bestselling "Grossology" kids' fun-fact books by Sylvia Branzei (which became a CD-ROM game and children's' museum exhibit), and my first experience with it was back in 1997 or 1998, when Mom left a fake plastic vomit on my computer desk one morning (the "Grossology" CD-ROM came with this, since she worked at

    Computer City at the time), and my grandma thought it was funny! But I never imagined that a decade later, this simple little book would later become Canada's answer to "The Incredibles" and "Kim Possible"!



    In early June of this year, I was having a conversation on the phone with my older brother in Pennsylvania, who informed me of this series. I thought he was talking about the books or game, but he told me it was a Canadian cartoon series similar to "The Incredibles" (which I'm a big fan of), and was animated in Flash (it was actually done with Toon Boom Digital Pro, as I soon found out, and was done by the same team as another cool Canadian cartoon show, "6teen"). He saw it on Discovery Kids (where it's airing here in the US; It airs on YTV in Canada) and he thought I would love it! I just had to check this out, so I sampled the episode "Fartzilla" (about a fart epidemic and a fart-powered robot dinosaur), and I was hooked! Not just by the wild action and the sick & twisted content, but the visual style and animation! I already love the colorful retro-style, and Faruk Cemalovic's character designs are excellent, on par with Stephen Silver's work. Abby Archer, the show's heroine, is my favorite character! (And one of my favorite cartoon girls!) Just plain pretty, and full of charm and appeal. Plus, Abby has flaws, unlike the politically correct cartoon heroines these days. The other characters, including Ty (Abby's brother), Lab Rat and the Director are superb, as are the villains (Lance Boil, the "Mojo Jojo" of this series, is my favorite)!



    Of the episodes I've seen at this writing, my favorites include "Fartzilla," "The Scab Fairy," "When Ya Gotta Go," "It's Gotta' Be the Shoes," and "All Together Now." There's also "The Insider," which is an apparent nod to "Invader ZIM" (the episode's plot is remarkably similar to that of the "ZIM" episode, "NanoZIM."



    If you can get past the "gross" theme aimed at kids, adults, even cartoon buffs, will love the dynamic visual style. But for me, "Grossology" is my favorite new cartoon series, right up there with "The Powerpuff Girls" and "The Venture Bros."! I highly recommend it!moreless
  • Meh, it sure tries to use grossness as a funny but at the same time this sack of junk is not good for children.

    Ytv sure likes to endorse this show for some reason but after a while the jokes seem tasteless or should I say smelless. The show uses the infamous toonboom program that is suposely much more easier to use then adobe flash is. I have nothing it against it but most of the cartoons that come from it I hate. Such as 6teen or that dreaded Ruby Gloom. Well this shows animation is a bit eye bleeding. It's like they did 6fps rather then the full 12fps. The plots really arent done in an educational format. It's more like "Hey this thing is gross". The end. There's also a bit of inaccuracy in some of the episodes. The show really isnt enjoyable. Was much better off left as the books.moreless
  • Follows the adventures of Ty and Abby, a brother sister team, as they fight crime and fight grime.

    Grossology is one of my favorite shows next to Teen Titans, of course.



    I first heard of the show when I was watching Kenny the Shark on DK. I tuned in the up coming Saturday and saw the episode "Yack Attack". Soon after I saw that I felt like I found the one show that was missing from my life.



    The main characters, Abby and Ty, are both my favorite characters,(though I kinda have a crush on Ty).



    My favorite episodes of the ones that I've alreadry seen:



    When Ya Gotta Go

    Go Fish

    Yack Attack(obviously)

    Kid Rot

    The Insider

    Oldie but a Goodie

    Vein Drain

    Silent but Deadly (pt1)

    The King of Rottingham Forest

    and Frankenbooger



    I haven't seen Silent but Deadly (pt2) yet, but I know I'll love it 'cause I loved part 1.



    If you like a show with a theme of good vs evil with a mix of slight grossness and and a bunch of comedy, this is the show for you.moreless
  • Since when does making a show about gross stuff give you a 7.3?

    3.5
    People use to think watching gross things was revolting and changed the channel instantaneously, stuff like mega babies shouldn't be allowed on the air but idiots like whoever made these shows seem to think it's funny.



    Who wants to watch snot, giant colons, people puking, and Kids sneezing all over the floor? It makes me wonder why new shows can't be as good as the old ones, what happened to good, sensible, and clean shows that use to be on tv's for family's.



    Nowadays there are shows with writers who don't think, sex, so much violence that it barely has a plot, swears, toilet humor, and shows that are so tedious that you fall asleep.



    Let's hope this show will disappear soon and that 2008 will bring good movies and shows.
