I Have to Agree this Show did have some original Characters and Plots and had Some Funny Stuff... Though It's very Childish kind of Humor. I Have to admit it's not the Best Cartoon that Cartoon Network has had to Offer... It doesn't Compete with Ed, Edd, N Eddy, KND, Billy and Mandy and Camp Lazlo; And I Personally say that this show is Not Great or Bad, but just a Decent Show. Now for the Ratings:
Character Development: 3/10
I Say watch this Show and give it a try and if you don't like Childish Humor then this is not really for you!!
Okay, when this show first came out here in New Zealand, I began to watch it and I thought it was okay. This was back when I was about 11-12. I thought Cartoon Network was really good then, apart from how they changed everything e.g. Logo, ads. I thought this show was good but now I've grown out of it. I did get bored during most episodes and wanted the show to be over. So, let's get on with the review.
So, the plot of the show is pretty creative. A 12 year old boy named Adam Lyon is transferred to an animal school because his last name sounds like "Lion". His best friend is a spider monkey named Jake who is obsessed with his butt, literally obsessed with his butt. I thought the plot was pretty crative and different.
Characters. I did not really find the characters that great. Adam has a pretty annoying voice and why would he hang out with Jake if he's so stupid and Adam constantly has to stop him and yell at him? Jake was also pretty annoying. His whole obsession with butts was annoying as heck. I mean, all he does is go around, flonking his butt on screen and spanking it like crazy. Honestly, this is a kid's show! There was that gorilla guy who had a gay voice or something; gay as in a homosexual-sounding voice. The giraffe and the bird did get sort of annoying at times. The principal did sort of sound annoying. I dunno, some of the characters were just pretty annoying.
Animation and designs. The animation and designs were okay but most of the characters had some weird designs. The giraffe's neckseems way too long, I understand she's a giraffe and all but come on. The backgrounds were okay like I didn't see a problem with them.
Episodes. Most episodes did bore me. I would watch half way through and would just wish they would be over. The episodes did always have different plots and that in them but I'd just get bored through them. I don't think there were any particular episodes I did like.
Jokes/Humour. The jokes never really made me laugh. Mostly throughout the whole show, Jake just talks about butt and stuff. Like, is that the only joke the producers could think of? Having Jake talk about butts? All the butt jokes got annoying and were way overused. It's all butts, butts, butts, butts, butts!
Overall, this show was an okay show but did bore me at times, had weird characters and annoying repetitive jokes, like butts. So, if you like this show then it's fine with me. Anyways, this is the end of my review for this show.
