  • In a way it has a posetive spin but is pretty annoying that it`s not completely original

    I think there are too many Superman clones out there an this show falls in that pile. Still, it had intresting characters and a few episodes with watchable plots. But I think that it defenently should have tried to be completly original.
  • This series doesn't talk down to young viewers, but instills in them important life lessons through fun action packed and adventurous fun. As a parent, I can highly recommend this show to other parents.moreless

    As someone who grew up with Krypto as the Superboy's dog, watching this version was strange, but yet familiar. At first, I thought these episodes dealt with the time period after Krypto left his master (Superboy/Superman). Yet, this isn't the case for two reasons: (A) Krypto left the Earth to explore the universe and have it as his playground. (B) After reading several episode summaries, I came to realize, in this version, Krypto just arrived on Earth. He was Kal'el's dog on Krypton, but when he arrived on Earth he joined up with a human boy (instead of his original master).



    I can accept in an alternative universe Krypto didn't meet up with Superboy, but with a normal boy who lives on Earth. Given this perception the series Krypto: The Superdog is really great children’s (TV: Y) series!



    Krypto, otherwise, has the same powers and retains the sense of right and wrong he learned on Krypton. These facts make Krypto a great model for children. The show doesn't talk down to young viewers, but instills in them important life lessons, through fun action packed and adventurous fun. As a parent, I can highly recommend this show to other parents (based upon the several episodes I viewed).



    As for my watching the series, it brings back many wonderful memories of Superboy, Krypto, and I up in my bedroom. Yet, it is painful not to see Superboy in these episodes, so I'll be passing on watching the series. I will be watching, though, The Legion of Super Heroes!moreless

  • It's okay but it could have been better.

    5.0
    When I first found out about this series, I was anxios to see it but then when I did see it, I thought it was pretty good but it could have been better. If it was Y7 instead of Y then it could have been a cooler series like 'Teen Titans' and 'Justice League' where. If they wanted to make it for little kids then I think they should have at least had a moral to each episode like 'Baby Looney Tunes' has. Some of the ideas where pretty cool like Krypto's Team, the Dog Stars and I think some of the charactors are pretty cool. Another thing I think could have been better was the animation style. I think it would have been cooler if it was more like the animation in 'Justice League' or 'Teen Titans' instead of that HannaBarbara type animation (not that I don't like HannaBarbara type animation, I just think it didn't suit the series that well). They could have made the series funnier too.moreless
  • A Fine Cartoon.

    There really is nothing WRONG with this show. It's cute, fun, entertaining, and colorful, with an excellent cast of characters. The issue is that ideally, it shouldn't have been conceived as purely a kiddie show. This doesn't allow it to live up to its full potential, which I think is tremendous. If they had gone at this as a more mature show, it could've been a real hit. If we could feel more real emotion, love, passion, danger, actual threat of death...it would be absolutely amazing. Same exact characters, less juvenile situations and dialogue. That's what I'd love to see. As it is, I love Krypto and am delighted to have discovered it by surprise on Cartoon Network. It IS a fine example of a modern cartoon show, clever and completely family-friendly. On the whole though, I would have preferred it to be more like many other superhero programs--not "dumbed down" for children just because it stars the cute little puppy dog. Anyway, in my humble opinion, the best part of the show is the recurring Dog Star Patrol.moreless
  • HALLOWEEN IS ALMOST HERE, AND THE CLASSIC SERIES BEWITCHED AND THE ADDAMS FAMILY WILL GET YOU IN THE SPIRIT, WHILE THE MINISERIES NIGHTMARES AND DREAMSCAPES: FROM THE STORIES OF STEPHEN KING WILL FULFILL YOUR NEED FOR FRIGHT. DON'T FORGET TO PICK UP SUCH HILARIOUS FAVORITES AS SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: BEST OF SATURDAY TV FUNHOUSE, SCTV, AND BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD FOR SOME LAUGHS.
