  • It's okay but the new episodes are weird

    7.0
    Overall I think the show is okay. I watch it occasionally (just auditing). The episodes are decent but the new one are just plain weird. Like Beamer stating that he's "growing" but then he turned out to be like orphan (Like a child loves his mother. Beamer loves Carmela). Then there's Lily, Lefty, and Junior. Lily and Lefty seem to act their ages unlike the other tools (they're so mature). But I don't like the fact Junior is their son. I look at him and ask myself "How on earth was he even born?". What I do like about it is that they are caring to their child. Lefty can just chatter your ears off. He talks and he talks (more than the other tools). He always has something to say. Well... Lily she's a whole 'nother story. I mean she's emotional and starts crying like a baby when she's depressed or stressed (in "Hank's Birthday" if you look closely when she talks about candles as she struggles to finish her sentence you can see tears in her eyes then once she does finish the sentence she bursts into tears). She is overprotective (She'll be like "Junior don't do that!" and Junior will be like "Mom that's not gonna happen"). Junior (scream) he's just like Squeeze. Roland is too glutton. In "Hank's Birthday" he was taking over as stewardess the chips were completely. Roland admits he ate them "they were delicious". Really?



    All in all, it's an olay showmoreless
  • What was Wilmer Valderrama thinking when he signed on to this? I'm sure he regrets it now.

    Believe it or not, Disney isn't new to preschool programming, they showed a LOT of it on the Disney Channel in the late 1990's and early 2000's, including Rolie Polie Olie, The Book of Pooh, Bear and the Big Blue House, Stanley, and more. Shows that are educational and informative, but mostly fun. Unfortunately, it didn't last. They had no choice but to compete with Nick's loud and obnoxious preschool programming such as Blue's Clues and Dora the Explorer in 2006, and as a result, not only do we have a show that's not a good fit for Mickey Mouse (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse) or a steaming pile of dung that disgraces classical music (Little Einsteins), but we also have one of the most inconsistent shows on preschool television today.



    I don't know where to start, the fact that this is Disney's answer to Dora the Explorer (with the fact that it teaches kids that are to young to learn new languages how to speak Spanish), or the fact that this has been running since 2006. Either way, like any other show on Disney Junior, this show talks down to very, very little kids.. What's even more disturbing you ask? The fact that Wilmer Valderrama, the guy that played Fez on That 70's Show, voices the title character, Manny. I don't know what the hell Wilmer was thinking when he signed on to this, but I can't really blame him if he thinks it pays him good money. However, I'm sure he regrets the fact that he has to play a character that Disney thought would compete with the travesty that is Dora the Explorer. It's better than Dora, but it's still not very good.moreless
  • Disney's weapon against Dora.

    LOLWUT?



    Plot: Manny, who always goes into the town to repair things, from his stupid customers. Why are they stupid? They always break their things.



    Characters: Way out of place and dumbfounded. Voice acting is screechy. Dialogue is poor. And just like Dora, this is an anthropomorphic dimension, his "tools" talk and move.



    Value: Pointless. Not the time for the kids to repair electricity, and as Copper40 says, you must buy a new tv if your tv was broken. Common sense please. And at last, they're not talking to the screen.



    Art: Really sluggish animation, and poor quality of 3d.



    Overall: 0.1. It fails.moreless
  • Manny isn't really Handy

    1.0
    This show is about a Mexican repairman named Manny who fixes his lazy friends stuff that they break with his trusty tools, who apparently can talk. His tools are Dusty, who's a saw. Pat, a clumsy hammer. Rusty, a wrench that gets scared easily. Squeez, a pair of pliers and is the only female tool. Felipe, a Phillips Screwdriver who has an annoying accent. Turner, a Flathead Screwdriver who's a little grouchy sometimes. Stretch, a measuring tape, and finally Flicker, a flashlight that appeared in season 3 (I think) and can only speak Spanish. Now, remember when I said Manny's Friends are lazy. I mean they are lazy. I mean, c'mon! If you have a broken lamppost, you don't call a repairman who is apparently the only one in town to fix it, you get another one! Dosen't a repairman need a break? Speaking if repairmans, Manny always needs stuff he dosen't have. So he goes to Kelly's Shop for that item. Wow, that's pathetic, a repairman who dosen't have what he needs? Who made this guy be a repairman?! Kelly also has everything Manny needs in every episode, like she has infintie items. This show is also in CGI, which is really bad since CGI is ugly as hell.

    Final Score: 1.0

    Grade: Fmoreless

    Seriously Disney, just because you employ half your work force with illegal workers, it does not make it right to sugar coat it with this show! Let's see: Handy Mandy is obviously from a Mexican decent and clearly not of the decent as everyone else in the show. The premise is that Mandy fixes everything in town himself. Why? All the of the real qualified tradesman in town with an actual trade license are all gone. Handy Mandy comes to town with his "free working tools" and no specific trade background, he was able to undercut everyone's price and drive them all away. Nobody in the town doesn't seem to catch the fact that due to Mandy's horrible workmanship he keeps coming back to the same customers. Mandy is always spending as much time as he can with the local women to hopefully get a wife and green card.moreless
